In a recent blog post about the most recurring teacher problems and how technology can be used to help solve them, EdTech Coach, Myrto Pitsava, examines how there is a direct correlation between using educational technology (EdTech) tools in classrooms and improving student outcomes.
NUITEQ’s VP of Strategy and Content, Dr. Edward Tse further explores this connection by showing how EdTech tools such as Snowflake can help teachers save time on lesson planning, which is one of the top five teacher problems according to a recent study conducted by NUITEQ, interviewing both American and Swedish teachers.
In an effort to better align with the pedagogical methods of teachers, there is an increasing enthusiasm among teachers to facilitate a more student-centric approach to learning and encourage an active learning environment that is technology-driven and designed to support the 6 c's of education (Critical Thinking, Collaboration, Communication, Creativity, Citizenship, Character).
In a study conducted by both the U.S. Department of Education and the What Works Clearinghouse to better understand how to improve student outcomes, research suggests the use of technology increases classroom engagement, course completion and overall grades. Indeed, Snowflake allows teachers to send timely and targeted feedback while also aiming to help students learn and develop the skills needed for future jobs.
In this video, Dr. Edward Tse explores how combining new pedagogical methods with EdTech tools allows teachers to teach students the skills needed for future jobs and make active learning an integral part of classroom curricula while also helping reduce teachers' day-to-day challenges.
