Why is STEM education important in today's rapidly changing world, and how does it benefit students in their future endeavors and overall learning experience?
As school safety concerns mount, district and school leadership are looking for ways to implement integrated communication systems to enhance what is already set in place. In an effort to help leadership make informed decisions, Boxlight will host a round table discussion on this critical issue – Planning for Enhanced Safety: An Integrated Communication System from Boxlight.
The success of any educational initiative, whether it be implementing a new curriculum, introducing a new teaching method, or integrating technology into the classroom, hinges on the professional development of its teachers. When time and effort are spent designing professional development that supports skills growth, encourages consistent application of learned methods, and empowers educators to go beyond their comfort zones, students benefit.
New goals help bring the start of any new year to focus, and our education webinars are no exception. Our main goal is to help more teachers implement educational technology with confidence so that they, in turn, support their students through consistent and competent use of tools to engage learning. We realize that teachers have a lot on their plates so our webinars are short, straightforward, and designed to provide strategies that can be implemented right away.
Incorporating advanced technology to improve campus communication is critical to boosting safety in a school. As district and school leaders continue to look for ways to help those in the school community feel safe, interactive display technology has become a key tool. For instance, administrators can broadcast alerts and updates to the interactive displays in a school quickly so that teachers and students receive important information when it’s needed. With a solid and detailed communication plan, schools can implement innovative technology for more than just teaching and learning.
We are wrapping up 2023 with three webinars that will get you excited about implementing interactive tools in the classroom! These short, 20-minute webinars are facilitated by EOS Education Consultants who have the expertise and experience with interactive learning. Their goal is to help you use technology comfortably and confidently. To register, click here – Virtual Classroom Webinar Schedule.
Back to school is a time full of nervous anticipation and excitement about what is coming this year for both teachers and students. If your class is set up with an interactive display and/or STEM education tools and materials, we can help!
There are positive benefits that interactive, hands-on education has on learning such as providing students with multiple opportunities to see the world beyond the classroom walls via real-world connections. STEM education has influenced how teachers guide their students to identify real-world problems, research and design practical solutions, and collaborate and communicate their ideas with others. A STEM tool that has become a familiar fixture in many classrooms and school makerspaces is the 3D printer.
The influence of STEM education on the maker movement is undeniable. The availability of constructive technology like 3D printers, robotics, new programming languages, and so on has made the implementation of maker education possible for more schools and districts. Why is the maker education movement on the rise?
Makerspaces, or a collaborative workspace in a classroom, school, library, or other setting, are increasing in popularity in schools because of their many benefits to student learning. These benefits include, but are not limited to, providing students with
