Technology is Transparent in the Day of the Life of this Student

September 13, 2016 - 1 Comment

Technology, when implemented correctly, can create immersive, next-generation learning environments. For students like Kajsa, technology is like the air she breathes, from the time she wakes up in the morning until she closes out her day. She makes no distinction between joining a class from her dorm room, the library, or a classroom.

The leadership at the University of Nebraska Omaha (UNO), has embraced this philosophy. They have used technology to remove barriers from teaching and learning. What’s most exciting is that UNO is training our future teachers and educational leaders. We often hear that Schools of Education aren’t changing fast enough – this one is.  

Professors in the UNO School of Education move seamlessly between a range of technology mediums: using recorded lectures, including guest lecturers in the classroom, ensuring that students receive feedback over video or in person, and in holding virtual tutoring sessions.
