How Software-Defined Instrumentation Will Revolutionize STEM, and why Educators are Slow to Adopt

From cars driving us to work to phones confirming our identities, exciting new technologies are rapidly transforming every aspect of our lives.

With these numbers rising consistently, we should expect to see an acceleration of modern technology use in the classroom.
