Technology in Education – From Novelty to Norm | Joel Handler | TEDxHIllsboroughLibrary

How is ubiquitous technology affecting the classroom of the 21st century? Joel Handler shares his findings from Hillsborough (NJ), one of Google-for-Education’s pilot school districts in the US. With all students having their own individual device, collaborative note-taking, (inter)national video sessions and asynchronous learning are changing education into a remarkably different kind of classroom.

As Director of Technology in Hillsborough schools, Joel Handler has been instrumental in implementing a novel approach to using technology as the means of learning. He has observed how changing the paradigm of school classrooms to be creative and interactive will lead to more in-depth collaboration and more engaged students. ‚Äč Joel holds two masters degrees, one in Computer Science and another in Educational Administration from Rutgers University, and has recently been ‚Äčnominated as a member of the 2015 Consortium for School Networking Volunteer Hall of Fame.
