UMKC Professor weighs in on how changes impact educators

Listen to the story on KCUR’s website.

The Shawnee Mission School District has announced it will put laptop computers into the hands of all of its staff and students when the next school year begins.

To better understand this $20 million effort and what effect technology might have on the way educators teach, University of Kansas professor John Leslie Rury and University of Missouri -Kansas City professor Jennifer Friend joined host Maria Carter on Thursday’s Central Standard

Shawnee Mission joins North Kansas City, Fort Osage and Kansas City Public Schools in implementing the “1:1” model that provides computing devices to students and staff.
