We are committed to providing teachers with opportunities to nurture their connections to other teachers through various initiatives but most recently through a new talk series called “Teachers Meet Businesses”. The aim was to build a community that bridged the gap between educators and businesses in terms of preparing students for the workplace.

After helping many schools around the world to develop and facilitate makerspaces, our Vice President of Education and makerspace expert, Mark Barnett shares his 3 key elements for successful maker learning.
Everyone is embarking on a journey of learning that will last a lifetime. The knowledge to be relevant today, in the same area of expertise, will not be relevant in 5 years time not to mention in 25 years time. To be able to pursue a journey for a lifetime, learners need to gain a broad exposure to technology at the outset of their learning journey to make the most informed decision possible and set a sustainable direction.
Educators globally have been identifying essential digital skills for their curriculum to help make their students future-ready. Here are a list of 3 key digital skills believed to play a crucial role in students’ development and success when they enter the workforce.
Now more than ever has it been much easier for teachers or parents to reach out to each other with Technology, be it via email, phone or any other channels they agree to use. This encourages an open conversation about the overall learning and development of the kids.
One of the best ways to slowly start bringing Technology into your classrooms is using fun EdTech tools that will help you and/or your students boost learning or teaching experiences. Check out the top 5 we thought you should try this year!
Can we boost student engagement with technology initiatives at schools and districts – for example, with increased computer lab time, 1:1 device programs, etc.? Just by introducing tech tools like smart screens, online quizzes and games will only boost engagement for a little while. What we want is to establish sustainable engagement that has a meaningful impact.
It is Social-Emotional learning, empathy, and what many call “soft skills development”. You may have even seen a shift to social-emotional thinking in your own schools with mindfulness programs, empathy-building projects, or school-wide behavior management programs that focus on restorative practices.
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:
