Device Management in the Classroom Gives Teachers Their Time Back
The primary school classroom has changed dramatically in just the last 20 years. Computer Science classes used to cover typing speed and little more. Today, kids must be primed to enter the world with all of the skills to survive in our rapidly evolving global world of tech. So how are schools integrating tablets and computers into the classroom in an efficient, effective, and responsible way? Answering this question in this EdTech Podcast episode is Chrissy Allard, marketing director at PowerGistics.
Many kids today have had tablets in their hands before they could even talk. But some children do not have the same access to digital devices in their homes. By integrating tech into the public school classroom, students are allowed to gain familiarity with these devices–as Chrissy describes, “…[It is] creating a barrier-free playing field for learning tech.”
Tech allows for a deeper personalization to the learning process, giving teachers the tools to educate each student based on their learning ability and speed. As tech continues to blend into the school curriculum, teachers must be armed with the tools to make the change seamless and stress-free.
With little spare time on their hands as it is, teachers need technology to help them, not haunt them. That’s where a device management solution comes into play. A strategically used device tower, like the ones PowerGistics creates, not only makes the stress of using and putting away tablets minimal, but it creates a safer, more streamlined way to charge and store this expensive assets.
Solutions that speed up processes in the classroom and invaluable; they give time back to the teacher to do what they’re there to do– teach. It also creates an easy space for IT departments to manage and maintain classroom technology. One thing is for sure, tech isn’t going anywhere–it will only become more pervasive in business and economy.
Integrating tablets and computer science into the classroom with as few hurdles as possible is critical to keeping rising students on trend with rapid technological advances. When managed correctly, technology can enhance the learning experience, not distract from it.
