Future directions
Future Directions…

There are two likely directions for technology integration in school instruction:

Hand-held devices that increase student access to communication and information tools.

The movement from static pencil and paper activities to interactive digital storytelling venues: podcasts, movies, wikis, blogs, animations and more .

  • Personal Communication and Information Tools
