Classrooms of the Future: How Do We Get There?
Villanova University School of Law (2011)
  • April M. Barton, Villanova University School of Law

In this presentation I explore the concept of classrooms of the future. I explain the trajectory of educational technology and how it can truly serve the educational needs of our students by engaging them with technology rather than losing them in technology distractions.

Specifically I explore three facets that I believe characterize our classrooms of the future: (1) experiential learning; (2) social learning; and (3) mobile learning.

I present my vision of using 3D simulation technology in our law school educational model and exploring alternative methods of information delivery. I conclude by discussing how to leverage the technology that we have now at Villanova Law School to best accomplish our teaching mission.
