Cool Tools for the 21st Century Classroom

The History of Classroom Technology Infographic


Chalkboards… Overhead projectors… Desktop computers… Interactive apps… Advances in technology have definitely revolutionized the educational world—especially in recent decades. Check out the History of Classroom Technology infographic shown below to see just how far we’ve come!

Be sure to use the embedded tools to zero in on the details.

Thanks to the University of Phoenix for creating this useful infographic and to the Avatar Generation for sharing it on, a fabulous content curation tool!

Classroom Connection:

Yep, it’s true! The use of technology as a teaching tool has come a long way. Now more than ever, most educators have access to a wealth of web resources, mobile devices, and apps that can enhance the teaching and learning process. Yet, unfortunately, there are still many teachers who resist integrating technology into their lessons, projects and activities.

As an instructional technology coach, I believe that whether individuals like it or not, technology is not going away. If anything, it’s going to become more and more prevalent—not just in our society but in our schools as well. That said, use this infographic as the basis of a discussion to encourage teachers to step out of their comfort zones and embrace the incorporation of digital tools into their curriculum.

The infographic could also be used as a visual writing prompt and/or to spark a conversation about the evolution of educational technology.  Students could debate  whether or not the use of digital tools has an impact on their learning. They could also discuss what developments they foresee in the next decade.

By the way, infographics can make really neat classroom posters too! Use the Block Posters web tool to create your very own!

Infographic of the Week is a series designed to promote the use of infographics and visual literacy in the classroom/education.
