What technologies would make teaching and learning more interesting, fun, or easy in 2013? Vitrine technologie-éducation offers you a few suggestions.

Paper USB Keys

How to be tech-savvy and old-fashioned at once: on the first day of class, give students all the documentation they need on a USB key embedded in a paper-based course syllabus. To learn more about this technology:

3D Printer

Materializing 3D computer designs outside a research lab is now possible with affordable 3D printers. Install one next to the photocopier at the library, in the computer lab, or in your office!

Augmented Reality

Now that tablets and smartphones are increasingly present in schools, augmented reality is being used for pedagogical purposes, including gaming, modeling and discovery learning. Inaccessible locations and complex objects, processes, or datasets can now be explored and manipulated.  Walking on the moon was never so easy!

Natural Language Question Answering

Computational knowledge engines do not require the use of keywords or advanced search techniques to produce results. Just ask a question in plain English to Wolfram Alpha or Kngine; if they don’t already know the answer, they will find it for you.

The VTÉ team wishes you Happy Holidays, and great fun with technologies in the coming year!
