Children have early access to technology in the classroom from iPads to video feeds and this past year amped it up. In our school district the students do almost all of their work on a tablet or laptop.
The importance of audio visual (AV) technology in education should not be underestimated. There are two reasons for this; one, learning via AV creates a stimulating and interactive environment which is more engaging; and two, we live in an audio-visual age which means that having the skills to use AV equipment is integral to future employment prospects. Exposure to AV technology in education is imperative.
