About the Show

Our world is increasingly wired to technology. Our homes, entertainment, cars, hospitals, marketplaces, and even our wallets are now technologically “smart,” but what about our children’s classrooms? Do students have access to today’s best software and latest systems? Are teachers and schools keeping up, or are they overwhelmed by the choices? Can technology and traditional teaching methods co-exist in a new blended learning environment? This looks like a case for the School Sleuth!
