It is really important that educators allow a range of experiences for learners to find the area of technology that is their strength and their passion, something that they will have a willingness to follow, be curious about and learn resiliently for the rest of their lives as it continually evolves.
As educators, we understand that real world application is a key factor for engaging students with any course material. We can also observe that students who are able to demonstrate critical thinking and technical skills through real world outcomes are more likely to succeed when applying to higher education or to an upper entry-level role within the workforce.
At the end of every year, our Education team dedicates time to research new developments and trends in education and technology, to ensure we create cutting edge, sustainable and up-to-date roadmaps for our future curriculum. Here’s a list of trends we found that you should also stay updated on:
While science hasn’t quite delivered those sci-fi dreams, the emergence of AI has definitely arrived and left us wondering, “what now?” Artificial Intelligence is a booming field of study with lots of controversy and confusion; especially for educators and schools.
When it comes to effectively integrating technology education into all classrooms, we have identified three hurdles that teachers normally face. Our PDs give teachers the skills and confidence they need to adopt, implement and sustain the delivery of Technology Education curriculum seamlessly in their classrooms.
Video conferencing enables our instructors to facilitate professional development sessions with teachers from around the world and accommodate busy schedules across multiple time zones. However, virtual training comes with its own unique challenges. Here are some of the best tips that we’ve picked up after hundreds of sessions with thousands of teachers.
Your students were probably exposed to a tablet or smartphone at a very early age and have grown up using technology. For the majority of your students, the digital space is their modern-day playground.
However they make use of technology, all of our students are already digital citizens. But the important question to ask is: are they ‘good’ digital citizens?
The interest in educational makerspaces has seen an explosive growth over the past few years; you can now find them all over the world: in schools, museums, libraries and even in local garages.
There are many qualities to an effective and memorable teacher: they are keen to spread positivity, and they genuinely enjoy teaching and engaging with students. They are reflective, open to change and always welcome new ideas. But with all these great qualities there is one common driving force behind – the passion in what they do.
Design Thinking helps capture the needs of the people, gives insights into the opportunities that are available and gives clear ideas for a refined human centred solution or product. Let’s see how we prepare students on their Design Thinking skills via BSD programs of learning.
In today’s digital age, an increasing number of schools are recognizing the value of introducing non-traditional learning tools in the classroom. Introducing edtech tools in the classroom doesn’t mean relying on technology to teach a lesson for you – but rather, it is incorporating them in such a way that allows you to deliver lessons that enhance student learning and engagement.
The ISTE conference is a wonderful time of year where educators from around the world gather to discuss the latest trends and technologies impacting education. It’s a time to look forward to the new challenges and opportunities that face students with a positive attitude and an open mind.
Last month, we ran the first event in our new series: Teachers Meet Businesses! During each event, a representative from the business speaks about their experience of technology in the workplace and a teacher shares their experience of how they are integrating technology in the classroom.
For such a small little rectangle, it holds creativity and knowledge from the past and the future, allowing people to share ideas and access new knowledge. With the help of technology, stories are brought to life and enhances the experience of reading when students can probe further with a simple search.
Earlier this month I was invited to present at the ACAMIS Spring Leadership Conference on Student Agency in Educational Technology Integrations. This article summarizes the key points from my presentation – definition and importance of
