Using Digital Technology to Aid in Education

Summary and Links by Mike Moodie

Digital technology platforms are reaching all corners of the earth. Whereas once tablets were seen as a gadget only for the rich, they are now being used by six year old children in classrooms in Thailand. This is one of many digital technology trends that is outlined in this article by the World Bank. I have added an additional article about the advantages of using tablets in the classroom as well as an Al Jazeera news report about how the technology is being used in Thailand.
