Tyngsboro, MA (PRWEB) September 04, 2014
Balefire Labs is excited to announce the appearance of its president, Dr. Karen L. Mahon, on tonight's episode of the STOSSEL show on Fox Business Network. This evening's show, which focuses on issues related to back-to-school, includes a segment on the advances of technology in education, in which Dr. Mahon will be speaking.
Education technology has changed the way schools and classrooms operate, from kindergarten through higher education. Tablet devices, educational apps, massive open online courses (MOOCs) and adaptive instruction offer new options for educators...both to address problems of access and to provide data-based, customizable instructional alternatives. Dr. Mahon will discuss these innovative solutions and their implications with host John Stossel. "It's such a pleasure to be invited to the STOSSEL show to talk about education technology and how it is changing education," says Mahon. "There are so many innovations now available that are changing how classrooms run."
The STOSSEL Show's Back to School episode airs Thursday, September 4th at 9 p.m. on the Fox Business Network.
