Abstract

For the past several decades, educators have devoted much discussion to the word “technology.” Most agree that it can be used as a cognitive tool and a medium of instruction. Yet few have experimented with various ways to use technology in classrooms. The following article by Educational Technologist --- explores the stereopticon, a first-of-its-kind device that used lenses to project a magnified image on a screen. This device profoundly affected teaching because it enabled an entire class to view the same content simultaneously. Professor Ent argues that the usage guide for the stereopticon is the same as that for today’s classroom presentations. Thus, both media should be studied simultaneously.
