Today’s students must be ready to take on careers of the future. This requires students be capable of anticipating and adapting to new technologies as they become common in the workforce. Our goal is deciphering how students achieve this technology literacy, while creating a better platform for both teachers and students to engage with emerging innovations in the classroom. Classroom tools are quickly changing from physical books of the past to current real time information (RTI) of the moment. These spaces encourage and engage collaborative, competent, project-based learning that students need now. We’re interested in the technology innovations that will enhance this learning environment; from coding literacy to digital equity to virtual reality. This session will cover the most vital of these emerging technologies, how students will use it, and the best means of implementation within our educational environments.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Recognize emerging technologies relevant to education.
  2. Understand how these technologies will affect teachers and students.
  3. Incorporate technology innovations into the built environment.
  4. Engage educators with teaching spaces most useful for fulfilling 21st century pedagogies.
