ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  From a very early age, kids spend a lot of their time dealing with technology at home.

Now, teachers are getting a glimpse at some tech items that could appeal to kids in the classroom.

The 21st Century Classroom Technology Showcase was held at Isabella Complex in Dougherty County.

It's a way to get teachers and curriculum specialists to view creative ways of implementing the way students learn in their classrooms.  

"Creating that environment that our children are used to," said Wilena Clark, an Account Executive for Xerox Audio Visual. "They're used to technology at home. We have the computer, we buy them MP3 players, Wiis, so we want to take the same thing that they have at home and take that environment and put it in the classroom to keep them engaged, keep them focused, keep them interactive and create that opportunity for a global economy."

Some examples of the technology showcased were interactive tables, wireless sound systems and ways to take students on virtual field trips without leaving the classroom.
