FREE Webinar: Converge Special Report Webinar Update: Specialty Classroom Technologies

Converge Special Report Update:

A whole new class of specialized learning tools and technologies are appearing in classrooms today and are expected to increase in the near future. This influx of new classroom technology is driven by Common Core and other curriculum standards, student demand for cutting-edge technology and the need to produce a more globally competitive workforce.

Specialty classroom technologies are also being used in the area of workforce readiness. Campuses face challenges both in trying to interest students in certain fields that are hiring as well as to retain them through graduation. However, a whole new class of specialized technology is emerging that not only can make up for campus’ limited resources, but can spark student engagement.

To equip students with the skills they need, K-12 and Higher Education institutions are now employing intensive and often specialized technologies such as:
  • Math and science labs
  • Gaming, animation and media programming labs
  • Art labs
  • GIS/CAD labs
  • Project-based learning environments
  • Virtual models and simulation games
  • Special needs programs
This webinar will discuss how these technologies and others are being implemented to deliver near real-world experiences to students in schools around the country. Please join us!
