Using Technology in the Classroom
Working with Laptops and Plasma "Touch Screens" in the ATCL Classroom

Laptop2.jpgAll USMA cadets currently have laptop computers and soon, all cadets may have tablets, and possibly iPods®. Are you ready for or have you had experience with this technology in your classroom? Can or does it improve cadet learning? How? What are or will be some problems you may encounter? For the past ten years, faculty members have been teaching cadet classes employing a variety of classroom and web-based technologies, both in and out of the Advanced Classroom Technology Laboratory. Here are some of the lessons learned:
