The interactive technologies under discussion here – Interactive Whiteboards, Edmodo, and Second Life – have been analysed from a myriad of angles, taking into account the different factors that come into play in an educational environment. Discover the benefits and challenges of these smart technologies and join us in reinventing the learning process!
