Education, Technology, and Iowa

Recently, IPTV Education attended the Keystone AEA Technology Integration for Classrooms (TIC) Conference at Upper Iowa University in Fayette. It was a great conference, and it was equally amazing to see so many teachers doing such good in their classrooms.

Technology, cell phones, and computers are all commonplace in today's world. Go to any office, coffee shop, or even a grocery store, and you will undoubtedly see people who are interacting with technology and media in ways that were unimaginable ten years ago.

Interactive Learning

Schools have found an alternative way to equip children with flexible and adaptive skills by allowing them to learn through playing interactives and videogames. In the hands of a skilled teacher, interactives can engage students in ways that a textbook cannot. A great amount of research has gone into the effectiveness of using video games in the classroom. From giving students the ability to deeply analyze and interact with material to providing immediate feedback, video games create learning environments that define clear goals, encourage motivation, and scaffold learning to meet the individual needs of each student. The teacher then provides the interpretation and the ability to help the student plan and move forward in their...
