Technology is a game changer in the classroom, with today's students growing up being able to master using the latest devices as if it's second nature. With the rapid growth of technology in the classroom, teachers are seeking interactive professional development opportunities that support this evolution.

However, only 56% of teachers feel they are adequately trained to enable 21st Century learning within their classrooms, and 67% find it difficult to stay on top of the latest education technology tools.
