Literature Review: The Impact of Emerging Technologies on Learning Environments

Abstract

The purpose of this document is to restate and review the trends in the practices and uses of emerging technologies that have and will continue to have a large impact on learning environments such as K-12 schools and higher education. This document more specifically addresses how those emerging technologies may have an impact on the developing model of Blended Learning and within it, the Station Rotation model which includes online instruction, teacher-led instruction, and other collaborative activities and stations. The overall objective of this innovation plan is to improve the system of education in the elementary school level in all content areas by implementing the Station Rotation model via the Blended Learning model (Horn & Staker, 2015).  Continue reading “Literature Review: The Impact of Emerging Technologies on Learning Environments”

And they could do this every day! And for our administrators, what if I told you, from all of this, you could be handed reports of increased achievement results and data?  How does that sound?
