My journey with technology

Watch Steve Lang discuss his evolving teaching experience using digital technologies

My journey with technologies began more than 30 years ago when I started my teaching career in a high school. My first computer was a Commodore 64 – released in 1982. I was very excited! I saw this computer as a tool with the potential to impact on how teaching and learning occurred in my classroom.

We now have computers that are much more powerful, more affordable, and easier to move around. In just a few decades, processing speeds have increased from megahertz to gigahertz, memory has jumped from kilobytes to gigabytes, and displays have evolved in leaps and bounds. The potential impact on teaching and learning is greater than ever.

Watch the video to discover which technologies I considered to be game-changers in my classroom.
