Teaching in the 21st Century

Think of our classroom at school.....specifically our chalkboard. "Even single-room schoolhouses in far rural areas of the country began enjoying the use of this innovative teaching tool. By the mid-1800s, a blackboard was to be found in almost every school and had become the single most important educational tool. Chalkboards remained the primary all-around educational fixture in schoolrooms and businesses for almost 200 years. Even the corkboard wasn't invented for presentations until 1891." Knowing that our chalkboard was probably being used over 100 years ago, watch the following video clip and write a short response as to how you see technology being used in the classroom. Be sure to indicate your initials and grade.
