The goal of integrating technology in the classroom is to get students engaged and participating in learning. We can integrate any technology into the classroom and have a proven track record to procuring the best devices the utilize the dollars spent to provide the best results to student learning and engaging. Classrooms have come a long way. There's been an exponential growth in educational technology advancement over the past few years.
Interactive whiteboards can be a great addition to the classroom. A teacher can hook up her laptop to a projector and a whiteboard. The whiteboard will show whatever website that is on the computer screen. This is a useful teaching tool as an entire class can see what is on the teacher’s computer. This allows for the instructor to provide an interactive lesson with real time information. Students find such lessons more interesting than mainstream lectures.

Wall Mounted, Flat Panel Monitors
Flat panel displays are becoming ever more popular. In homes and offices plasma/LCD/LED screens are rapidly replacing the heavy and bulky Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) glass screens. Flat LCD screens look very stylish and take up less space and costs have come down dramatically to be in the same price range as projectors without the need for maintenance and bulb replacement. Also sizes now compare to interactive whiteboards and with display technology, you get a brighter and crisp image with or without the lights on in the classroom. Technology now also can incorporate touch devices onto the display, making the display a touch surface much like a interactive whiteboard. Schools can utilize their existing interactive whiteboard software into the display so minimal training is necessary.
Projectors are the norm for classroom equipment. They have dropped drastically in price over the past few years which make them more affordable. This price decrease makes it easier for districts to supply each classroom with one. In the past, classes had to share projectors. Most schools only had one or two which would be shuffled from room to room. Educators would have to stick with boring lessons without visual aids because they lacked the time needed with the projectors. By incorporating projectors into each classroom, the lessons become much more interesting. We all know that it’s hard to hold a child’s attention to begin with, but visual aids make it easier for teachers to keep them on task.
