Schools Will Forever Change How They Purchase Technology

 

While most areas of our day to day lives have changed immensely during the pandemic, students in particular have had no choice but to adapt rapidly to new learning setups. Nine months past the onset of many COVID-19 related school closures and some students are still learning remotely, which is bound to have an impact on this generation of students, as well as the next generation.

According to Dave Vernier, Co-Founder and President, Vernier Software & Technology today’s students are certainly better at science and technology, such as using computers. “The old joke about if you want to learn how to use your cell phone, ask a 14 year old, is more true than ever for all people. I think that is going to be interesting,” Vernier said. He thinks that one good thing coming out of this whole situation is that some people have become aware of possibilities that technology offers for learning. “Certainly people are going to be willing to try things in the future, the concept of setting up a Zoom meeting is not going to be considered daunting to very many people after this is over and I think the world will be seriously changed,” Vernier explained.

He hopes that school districts will realize that spending money on technology can be a good investment towards giving students not only a good general education, but a science education. Alongside the students, countless teachers are embracing technology in a way they never needed to before. “In general, younger teachers especially are totally into the technology and doing things that, of course, I never was able to do. We didn’t have the technology when I was a teacher, but it’s wonderful to see some of the things that they’re doing,” Vernier noted.
