"You used what in your classroom?": 200 years of teaching and learning technology at the University of Michigan

The University of Michigan has long been a leader in the use of technology to facilitate teaching, and its faculty and support staff have worked together for many years to implement cutting-edge services and equipment in the interest of giving students the best possible learning environment.

The story of the University’s use of technology in the classroom has many chapters, stretching from the gaslight and chalkboards of the 1800s to modern PowerPoint slide presentations and high-definition video. 

This exhibit explores the classroom experience and the use of technology as they arrived at U-M through the years.
