The Education hub at BrightHub.com strives to provide informational articles and quality discussions about the many facets of the educational process including the technology and policies affecting today’s schools and universities. In addition, we look at how technology has brought learning out of the classroom and into the home, making continuing education and home schooling accessible to many millions of learners.
Today, schools are using long-distance learning labs that let one instructor teach the same course to many schools simultaneously. Special education has moved into the mainstream. Changes in educational policies and advances in technology have allowed students with disabilities more integration into regular curriculums. Adaptive devices can as simple as a wireless microphone clipped to a teacher’s lapel for children with audio processing disorders, or as wonderful as a virtual learning lab that allows a frequently home-bound child to keep up with her schoolwork and maintain relationships with her classmates and teachers.
Technology has opened the doors for many to continue their education. The accessibility of long distance learning has helped millions of people earn their GEDs or high school diplomas online, finish their college degrees or work on their MBA from the comfort of their homes or through public access points such as local libraries and community centers.
Language learning and technology continue to impact the issues that face today’s public schools. Some communities still struggle to provide adequate access to computers and Internet, while other schools encourage teachers to incorporate technology into their every day curriculum.
The Educational Technology hub is devoted to bringing you the many perspectives of parents, teachers, administrators and students involved in education today. But we can’t do it without you! Join in a channel discussion. Ask questions, discuss current events, debate issues and propose change. Suggest new topics and new articles. Technology alone does not change the future. People do.
