ExploreLearning: Maximizing School Technology
**Door Prize Opportunity** School and teachers have a wealth of technology at their disposal today. The spread of technology has dramatically changed the classroom like no other educational innovation. Students can, with the click of a few keys, uncover information more quickly, digest that information and present it to their teachers and peers in a way that looks extremely professional. ExploreLearning Gizmos are a great way to leverage the technology that students and teachers can access each and every day. ExploreLearning Gizmos will also allow students to take situations and problems encountered in class and change variables to evaluate the outcome. Online simulations provide the venue for students to truly understand predictive models and then critically evaluate the PROS and CONS related to their outcome.
