Researchers designing and testing the 'classroom of the future' have found that multi-touch, multi-user desks can boost skills in mathematics. The future is changing people!

I Remember Back In My Daays

Our class rooms looked like this:


Now they look like this:


But now researchers may be advocating this into modern day society:


(Yes Yes i know we all know what old and today's class rooms look like but i thought id make a thread that has pictures for people that like to look at the colors of pictures)

INTRODUCING

Star Trek Classroom: Next Generation of School Desks


New results from a 3-year project working with over 400 pupils, mostly 8-10 year olds, show that collaborative learning increases both fluency and flexibility in maths. It also shows that using an interactive 'smart' desk can have benefits over doing mathematics on paper.

I can imagine star trek 30+ year old fans wanting to go back to highschool XD.

"Smith, are you writing on your desk?"

when I was in Elementary, we were introduced to those Grey Macintosh's.
we had computer lab time a lot. we were children fluent in this technology..

By the time Grade-6-7 rolled around, the Laptop and newer generation computers started coming in.
We were the first students to use them as a class. It was revolutionary for the time.

Highschool was PC's and all that until now...

It would only seem natural kids would follow that natural pattern as well, only starting off with the latest tech in the same way we did.

The problem is if we had these desks then i'm sure students would want to hack them ahahah giving them unlimited stars and probably cheating..

I hope those desks are water, juice, drool, poop, Cheetos, bugger, grease, grime, scratch, claw, gum and "oooo smash light with random toy blunt object in my hand" resistant....or they better come cheap lol.

And that's just the little kids.

In jr and high school your going to have porn popping up on the classroom projector because some kids "accidently" made an up-link to the table with is i-Phone hahaha. I could see the teacher scrambling to turn it off and find the tables IP

Entier schools spamhaxed with gossip of school mates. Inter school room cyber bullying....

Interesting times we live in.

The Rat.

No matter what they do, I believe the education system is going backwards.

cool! I love seeing the technology used more. So often, they expect the kids to check their technology at the door...literally.

We have so much at our fingertips, it's a shame not to make use of it.

Calculus would be a breeze for the kds to learn with the technology at their fingertips.... and facilitated correctly
