Why New Problems in Education Need New Solutions
Celebrating the leaders and experts that are powering education into the future, host JW Marshall sets out to ask the “right questions” in EdTech to understand the changes in policy and technology that will power our universities, tradeschools, and companies – and drive growth in upskilling certifications.
JW Marshall, host of Voices of eLearning, spoke with Harris Goodman, Senior Vice President of Corporate Development and Strategy of Achieve3000, about how Achieve meets the needs of students in this new pandemic landscape.
For 20 years, Achieve3000 has been empowering educators and helping them unlock student potential and accelerate learning growth. Now, more than ever, schools and districts need proven solutions that can help them address unfinished learning and prepare students for success.
“The Pandemic turned EdTech from a want-to-have to a need-to-have” – Harris Goodman
Goodman elaborated that this makes the service that EdTech companies held to a higher standard. They are being held accountable.
Technology has also been an added benefit for student learning. With the pandemic, students were forced inside and had to rely on their tech. This accelerated technology learning in some ways if they took on the challenge. Tech also allows for students to be able to access more information. For example, students can learn to research and get information on their own.
While there have been a lot of good things that came from the pandemic in terms of learning, some things still need to be improved. Data interoperability is essential to Goodman, as teachers and parents need to have a continuous flow of information between platforms.
Marshall and Goodman believe that technology will improve education, as educators will have time to devote to lesson plans, educating, and doing the things they actually love.
