As digital natives comprise the majority of today’s U.S. students, it is important that the curriculum incorporates technology as a tool for learning. According to the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), multimedia tools can provide a rich environment for conducting project-based learning, which can help students to: increase knowledge and skills in the particular discipline being addressed; master research and higher order thinking skills; increase knowledge and skills in making use of information technology; and become further engaged in the subject.

In addition to these benefits, most states require that students meet a technology-focused standard prior to graduation. Generally, students should know how to use technology as a tool of research, organization, evaluation and communication, as well as understand the ethical and legal issues surrounding the access and use of information more

Lake Washington School District (LWSD), located east of Seattle, was looking to install new technologies that would better serve its increasingly more digital-savvy student population.

LWSD was looking for a cost-effective, high-quality speaker that would supply ample sound to the entire classroom. Decision-makers also required that the system be easy-to-use, more

AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - Months of perpetual flat tires and busted bicycle chains didn’t stop deepeei Film Productions from completing the highly-acclaimed cycling documentary Going South, which follows two teams of two cyclists each-one in North America and one in South America-who journey across 17,000 miles collectively through 17 countries on either side of the equator in search of ways to combat environmental issues such as global warming and climate change.
