Get Your Tech On!


We live – and learn – in a high tech world, and as such, education must continually evolve. Hear about some of those new models of 21st century learning from experts in the education field in this video from PBS LearningMedia.

The video features Chris Rush from New Classrooms, who discusses the value in integrating games into the educational space. We also hear from Teresa Napoli from School of One, who shares thoughts on personalized instruction for students, who in this day and age learn at different rates and by different methods. Plus, Rebecca Rufo-Tepper from the Institute of Play shares her vision for how to use games and digital media in meaningful and purposeful ways in the classroom.
