The history of technology in the classroom

A great infographic about the history of technology in the classroom. Its amazing to see the changes which have taken place so far, makes you wonder what changes are yet to come?

Reflecting on this infographic, I believe the introduction of smartphones and tablets have made the biggest beneficial impact on teaching and learning. Interactive apps would not be possible to access openly without these devices. They have truely changed the landscape of education.

On the other hand, it is hard not to comment on the negative impact of interactive whiteboards. Teachers were not propperly trainning in using them, not enough research on them was carried out and overall so far this initiative has been the least benefical in terms of impacting teaching and learning.

Do you agree with me?
What was the best technological introduction so far?
