what are a few examples of Technology use in American Schools from the 1980s to the persent

  • school technology -

    Computers and their many uses from research to PowerPoint to record keeping, internet, phones, overhead projectors, audio systems, TVs.

  • school technology -

    In the mid- to late-1980s, I used to take my students (class by class) to the one computer lab on campus. These visits were scheduled far in advance! Students who had a good rough draft of their essay assignment completed could get on a computer, enter the text, run it through spell-check, and print it.

    Later, in the late 1990s, my school got a state grant to put technology (mostly computers as it turned out) all over the campus, not just in the offices or in computer labs. We were able to put a teacher-station in each classroom and an additional 2 to 15 student-stations in each classroom, too. The number depended on the subject area and how the teacher proposed to use them. We also put together two mobile labs -- very large carts that held one printer and 35 laptops that a teacher could schedule for use in his/her classroom for a specific project -- social studies research, English writing/editing, etc.

    And that's only referring to computers. Ms. Sue has mentioned many more items that are used.

    If you need further information, please ask a more detailed question!
