Computers are an integral part of today’s classroom. Students of all ages are digital natives, having grown up with computers and other technology.

While they can be a great resource for gathering information and running useful software applications, there’s still more that schools can do to leverage computers to increase engagement between teachers and students.

Fortunately, Splashtop’s full suite of remote desktop and screen sharing tools opens up new possibilities for computers in education.
