Answer: How have your individual communication skills changed as with the innovations in technology? How have advancements in technology altered classroom communication? Will these change further?
Advancements in technology have certainly made communication between teachers and parents as well as teachers and students much easier. As technology advances, communication will continue to improve as well. Parents can now get in touch with teachers even when they can’t make it to school for a conference. Teachers can keep ongoing communication open with students and parents via email, messaging, discussion postings, online announcements, etc.
