In today’s technological world the classroom is no different. Even the United States Department of Education acknowledges that technology is a fundamental part of learning today. Technology in the classroom surrounds and submerges kids every day when they are being offered one Chrome Book per student to do homework and class work on, teachers using smart boards or Prometheans as blackboards and replacing overhead projectors and having instant access to other educational resources and learning material online using mobile devices twenty four hours a day seven days a week while being able to communicate with their teacher at the same time. Stay up to date using Zoom, a Microsoft unified communications solution, to host faculty meetings or keeping everyone up to date on PTO fundraisers by using the integrated instant messaging software will prove to be fast and easy that will save you a ton of time and money.
Motivation and Engagement
It has been proven that technology increases motivation and engagement of children and young adults while accelerating their learning. The teaching material using specific technology can be customised to suit their learning style which increases productivity and keeps them focused and interested in the learning material. With technology in the classrooms today it improves communication barriers that for centuries slowed children’s progress and enrichment down considerably. Today studying can be done from anywhere at any time via web video meetings, calls with other students and even with teachers, tests can be taken on mobile devices and even on calculators and grades can be viewed with just a click of a button.

Innovation and Collaboration
Teachers are most likely the most important person, apart from a parent or guardian, in a young person’s life.

Video and Virtual Reality
Most students, especially those under twelve, retain visual information much better than auditory information. Studies have proven that sixty five percent of what a student sees is retained compared to only ten percent of what they hear. Educators should take this into consideration because each day they are filling the air with their voices instead of streaming live feeds of the Grand Canyon or video tours of the Great Pyramid of Giza. Using our screen sharing software to enable multiple classrooms to view live streaming video of far off lands to explore all at once or you can use Zoom rooms as a collaboration tool for your teachers to enjoy.
