Again projector screens were revolutionized and by high school, the interactive Smart Board replaced video projectors. This board enabled teachers to write on the screen and manipulate its various touch screen tools and resources.
My college years introduced personal technology devices such as i-clickers. These devices could survey the class and collect data that we would then statistically manipulate. Additionally, other classes used personal technology devices to assess classroom participation, attention, and attendance. This helped engage students in what otherwise would be a tedious lecture.
My college years were also the first time I owned a smartphone or laptop computer. Today, I have the world in my pocket with internet accessible from almost anywhere.
