Full Event - Education Technology: The Next Generation
Education technology is an accepted and integral component of reforming and improving the American educational system. The educational possibilities made possible by today’s technology and mobile devices are expansive, with mobile phones apps, interactive games, distance learning programs, and environment software readily available to most students and teachers in the United States. Now that these tools are a common feature in the classroom, how can technology’s integration in education be expanded to best benefit students? How can educators incorporate the latest technologies to improve education and assess what proves effective? What future innovations can be expected in educational technology?
On March 20, Governance Studies at Brookings hosted a public forum to discuss the next generation of education technologies. A panel of experts discussed recent advances in educational technology and what new innovations are on the horizon. Participants can join the conversation on Twitter at hashtag #TechCTI.
