New initiative aims to expand students’ learning opportunities
The education technology movement has shifted from an experimental phase to the new norm. Standards are changing and teaching methods are evolving because students today are better enabled to not only understand technology in the classroom, but are the drivers for the change.
On Dec. 12, leaders from Samsung, NAF (National Academy Foundation), SOTI, and the Verizon Foundation are joining students in Omaha to roll out the National Academy Foundation Samsung School Solution Initiative. Each device has SOTI MobiControl installed to help students and faculty experience a classroom without walls.
Sitting with students, we witness the command and confidence they have when using technology, wanting to learn more. Teachers become facilitators and coaches; students direct their own learning. These students want to share their knowledge and collaborate more than ever before.
