Abstract

In this paper we discuss the hardware and software tools that teachers can use to create technology enabled classroom to enhance active participation in a classroom. One barrier to integrating technology in classroom is the difficulty many teachers face in finding and using appropriate instructional hardware and software for instruction. In addition, the lack of time and experience to make informed decisions about what particular hardware and software products have the potential of fostering learning goals can make technology integration a frightening prospect. Introducing various instructional hardware and software technologies available is the first step in preparing teachers to integrate technology in classroom. Details of mobile Tablet-PC technology, note-taking applications, classroom management tools, and wireless learning environment that teachers can adopt in their classrooms will be discussed in this paper.
