BSD works with core subject teachers around the world who are tasked with weaving technology into their classroom experience. To help navigate the challenges of tech integration, we’ve outlined 4 tips for creating meaningful technology experiences that will engage students and enhance learning.
“You’ve decided you want to learn a new technique for the classroom. Now
comes the tough question: where to go? Don’t worry, we’ve all been there!
To make it easy for you, we have created a quick guide on some of our favorite
resources for finding new techniques you can try in your classroom.”
Did you know that 79% of teachers that use BSD have no experience with coding or teaching technology? We design our programmes specifically for these teachers to get technology into the classroom. Based on our experience, here are five key take-aways on designing a PD programme that works.
Adding technology you may not be familiar with, to enhance your students’ learning experience, may even sound more intimidating. But don’t worry, we have come up with top tips to make this potentially daunting experience, easy for you.
In the current digital era, there is no denying that video games are among the most popular pastimes for people of all ages, genders, and backgrounds. Technology camps are a unique, eye-opening, and engaging way for children to pursue their interests in a collaborative environment and make new friends, learn new skills, and be exposed to a variety of disciplines.
Project Based Learning (PBL) blends content mastery, meaningful work, and personal connection to create powerful learning experiences, in terms of both academic achievement and students’ personal growth. PBL can be transformative for students, especially those who lack access to out of school time educational opportunities such as workplace internships.
Technology activities should always focus on having three things… These are our underlying principles – and we apply them whether we are working with Year 3 students or Year 3 teachers. However, what are the additional key steps that we take to tailor our activities so we can engage an 8-year-old and an 18-year-old?
Beyond simply learning how to code, creating a mobile app also encourages children to foster skills in a variety of areas. This includes tech-related skills such as programming, UX (user experience) design, UI (user interface) design, and soft skills such as creativity, resilience, computational thinking, and communication.
Technology focused after school enrichment programs are geared towards kids mastering the key skills and competencies of technology like computational thinking, design thinking, problem solving, and communication skills in an engaging, fun and team oriented environment. Absolutely no prior experience needed!
A wise 6 year old once said “Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs.” (Disney Baby) In case you might not be able (or want!) to share your French fries, we came up with a few creative digital ways that you can show you care.
As we have seen around the world in the last few years technology is not only ubiquitous, but more powerful than ever. A power at the hands of everyone. From a young age, then, we want to equip students not only with the technical skills to use tools but also the moral compass to use them for good. We call this teaching students to CARE – to be curious, adaptable, resilient and empathetic to the world around them.
Conferences are a great way to learn about the latest trends in edtech, connect with like-minded educators and discover ideas you can quickly implement in your classroom. We’ve selected three upcoming conferences you should consider attending.
