Back to School Time! Classrooms Have Definitely Changed

Summer is officially over in Texas! That’s right, back to school. The classroom you remember as a kid has greatly changed. An article at Edudemic discusses 5 big changes in the classroom. As a tech geek, I find the changes exciting, and I welcome new methods. These changes are coming slowly to my school, but the ball is rolling.

  • Traditional age based learning

Today’s student will likely have a much different experience than most adults remember in their education. What are your thoughts? Is it time to bring the classroom up to date with modern ways? Let us know in the comments section.
