The future classroom
Providing ICT resources for schools can be very expensive and can take a while to arrange, especially if new buildings are required. Novel solutions can be found, such as building a classroom inside an old shipping container. It is easy to install, cheap to run, and cost effective.
You can see a solution like this in a short video of a ‘container classroom’ (watch from minutes 18:32 to 23:59). (There is also a summary of the video.)
You will probably not have access yet to a facility like this, but it will help you to see what the future could be like, and the sort of teaching that the teachers you are preparing will need to be able to do.
