Education and Emerging Technology
After reading The NMC Horizon Report: 2012 K-12 Edition, I learned about several new technologies I had previously not been aware of, specifically augmented reality and natural user interfaces. I am constantly learning the various types of emerging technologies and am amazed at the potential they hold as teaching tools for today’s students. I had no idea that role-playing games could be used as a teaching tool, nor was I aware of the existence of personal learning environments and how they could benefit students. Technology is the key to revamping the education system, and with the tools mentioned in this video, I believe their implementation is vital.
