How Is Technology Transforming Teaching & Classrooms? | Learning Upgrade: Technology in Iowa Schools

Technology has rapidly changed how we work, communicate and organize our lives. In many ways we are more connected, informed, productive and entertained than ever before. But how is technology transforming teaching and learning in Iowa’s classrooms?

This segment introduces how technology has changed the practices and skills teachers use, and how classrooms are configured and managed. Teachers and administrators at Cardinal Community School District in Eldon, Iowa, share their local initiative to redesign classrooms, rethinking how to organize physical spaces to facilitate collaborative learning using digital tools. Educators from other Iowa districts share details on how teachers use technology effectively, and how they model appropriate use with their students.

The “Learning Upgrade: Technology in Iowa Schools” informational video series features stories from four Iowa school districts about how they have leveraged technology to accelerate change in their classrooms. District superintendents, school principals, classroom teachers, education researchers and Iowa educational leaders share their perspective on this transformation and what schools need to do to find success. The series’ five segments—focused on learning, teaching, leadership, assessment and infrastructure—spotlight promising practices and research-based strategies supported by recommendations of the U.S. Department of Education’s National Education Technology Plan. https://tech.ed.gov/netp/
