Blog Post #4 for EDSS 521 Response to Examining Project Tomorrow Website
When examining the Project Tomorrow website I found a lot of valuable source information on how education is transforming and technology is becoming more prevalent in the classroom. I liked that kids are more interested in incorporating these technologies in their learning. I was unaware that, based on the 2011 study that 68% of our students in America have smartphones. That can be very valuable when doing activities in class because we don't need to go to the computer lab any more. Students can look the information up on their smart phone. Teachers need to be vigilant and make sure they are not checking facebook or texting but this could be a valuable source.
