There are various factors to look at when considering edtech for your classroom: What tools will be most engaging? What solutions will your school actually want to use on a daily basis? What is reasonably affordable? What are the expected long-term benefits? Among some of the more engaging concepts and tools available today are 3D stereoscopic, portable interactive whiteboards and academic skill-building video game software which harness the full potential of powerful educational technology — equipping teachers and students with easy-to-use, flexible and affordable solutions for dynamic learning experiences and increased achievement.
