A Straightforward Guide To Building Cutting-Edge Classrooms

If you’re overwhelmed by all the talk of iPads, classroom connectivity, and basically unsure of how to actually turn your current classroom into something more cutting-edge, then this visual is for you. It details the step-by-step way to turn your 4 walls and desks into a 21st century classroom. While I hate that term, it fits into this visual (see below) so be sure to check it out.

The following guide we found quite awhile ago on Visual.ly draws some interesting ideas out of the usual ‘get some tech into your classroom’ mantra we all follow.

The guide is about a lot more than education technology, mind you. Having a cutting-edge classroom involves tinkering with ideas like gamification, analytics, and even open source textbooks. It’s all available right now so try these steps and you’ll never know where you’re gonna end up!

    The trick today is to get our students actually interested in learning and if this means bringing more ‘hip’ to the classroom then so be it. Give somebody a purpose and they will flourish.
