High-Tech Learning Space for Education Majors


Southeast education majors are learning to integrate technology into their future classrooms with the help of a newly transformed and evolving Instructional Resource Technology Center (IRTC). The changes are a part of EDvolution, an initiative to become a leader in producing graduates who are technologically ready and model 21st century teaching techniques.

Students use the space to videotape lectures. It offers lecture capture capabilities, AppleTV and a SMARTBoard. Students can practice lectures in front of a video camera and then play them back to assess their performance. In another room off the IRTC, education majors can practice teaching lessons while they learn to use classroom technology for their field assignments. The room, called the “collaboratory,” is equipped with an iMAC, AppleTV and SMARTBoard.
