Five teachers in the United Kingdom recently tested the use of touch-screen tables in their classrooms, and researchers found that while the technology may have potential, there is still a lot of work to be done before they can be effectively used in schools. The study by researchers at Newcastle University suggests that additional in-class testing is needed, as are additional teacher-friendly applications for the technology and more training for educators.
Are touch-screen tables the next big thing in education?
