Furniture Connection Ed Tech Studio

Welcome to the Furniture Connection Ed Tech Studio! This center, located within the Eriksson College of Education, is meant to advance the teaching profession using the latest technology. 

Tools such as Virtual Reality headsets allow our pre-service teachers to step into local K-12 classrooms without leaving the APSU campus. Through Virtual Reality resources, 3D printers, Lego Education Learning systems and more, aspiring teachers can become more adept in classroom management, lesson planning, technology integration and student engagement. 

The Ed Tech Studio is open for use by APSU students, faculty and staff, including classes. Explore the technology tools available in this innovative space, or schedule a visit to experience the Ed Tech Studio yourself!
