Technology is shaping the future of education. On Tuesday, Curtis Nower teaches mass media to his class of Turner Middle School students but, this year, the sound of clicking keys on dozens of desktop computer keyboards has dropped silent. Students now create unique photographic images on an iPad and teachers create new ways to teach with the tablet computers. “I was kind of scared because there’s not like a text book, there’s no manual ‘this is how you teach with an iPad,’ so it was a lot of leg work figuring out what am I going to do with them, how am I going to make it work in the classroom,” said Nower. This is a move forward that may have intimidated teachers, but not students, which is a sign of the technological times said 14-year-old Katherine Orozco. “It’s pretty easy; it’s just like the iPod, the normal, little ones. It’s just like them but bigger with more systems and stuff; it’s quite easy. I think it’s easy, everybody’s catching onto it pretty quickly,” said Orozco. It’s also confirmation that tough financial decisions continue in Turner.
