Inside the changing classroom: Thurs. on Newsline at 10:00

STEVENS POINT (WAOW) -

Join us Thursday night on Newsline 9 at 10:00 as we take you inside the changing classroom.

Have you ever heard of a glog? How about an animoto? Chances are your children have. Technology is changing the face of the traditional classroom and the way students learn. The tools are faster. But, are they better?

A study done in 2010 showed student learning improved after laptops were implemented in the classroom.

"Technology equalizes students," 66th grade teacher Laurie Hansen said.

Now, the typical learning environment seen throughout the decades no longer exists. It's now a world of digital textbooks and an ever changing curriculum.  

"Students can actually go and find things far more advanced than anything I can do," Hansen explained.

Join us Thursday night on Newsline 9 at 10:00 as we show you the transformation from black boards to smart boards and take you inside the changing classroom.
