'The computer virus ate my homework': Schools embrace technology
Posted by: Susan Einhorn
Long past are the days of blackboards and film projectors. Schools today are filled with enough up-to-date technology to impress even the most seasoned technology gurus. From large schools to small, students and teachers are more tech-savvy than ever.

Neil Schroeder, director of technology for the Sioux City school district, calls the rise in educational technology “exciting.”

“Technology offers another tool for teachers to engage students in new and interesting ways,” said Schroeder. “It doesn’t replace anything we did before, but it does augment the experience.”

Instead of spending hours grading multiple choice and true/false tests, teachers can provide online assessments that students take on their laptops. The laptops, which the school district provides for every high school student, can then grade the tests and give the students instant feedback. This allows teachers more time to spend on complex assessments, such as essays.
