What Does the Future Hold?

Many would argue that computer labs are going the way of the Dodo as 1:1 programs become more prevalent and technology is becoming more common in the classroom as opposed to being in a separate room.

What are your thoughts?

Computer labs are here to stay because......

  • It's the one place where all the students can have access to a computer at the same time
  • not all schools have the resources to go 1:1 or the trust or infrastructure for BYOD
  • schools need to ensure that students have access to the same materials in school

The time for computer labs has come and gone because.....
  • current instructional practices do not promote the use of computer lab
  • districts are cutting budgets for teachers in the lab.
