Into the Future with Classroom Technology

Audience: All
Technical Level: Low with some Medium

Our goal is to examine what is possible with classroom technology. What would an ideal classroom look like today? or 5 years from today? Classroom technology can be done on the cheap, but what would an ideal classroom look like (if cost were not a concern). We would use the University of Texas as an example of a cheap implementation, but one that still incorporates many interesting technologies, such as tablet pc’s, ceiling-mounted document cameras, and central control systems.
