We are starting off 2022 with amazing news – we are proud to announce that FOUR of our solutions won Best of 2021 from Tech&Learning. The purpose of the awards was to recognize educational technology that exceptionally supported teachers and students in 2021, no matter what the learning environment. A panel of educators evaluated nominations based on a set of criteria such as the product’s ability to support different learning environments and student needs, versatility, and ease of use. Which Boxlight solutions were recognized by this well-respected organization?
It has become increasingly obvious that the inclusion of STEM – science, technology, engineering, mathematics - in a well-balanced instructional plan is critical. With the growing need for STEM-educated individuals to fill STEM jobs, students in schools today need the skills necessary for these jobs. This includes critical thinking and reasoning skills, collaboration and communication skills, and developing creative solutions to problems. Students clearly need consistent and varied STEM learning experiences, and educators need the resources to support them.
Hands-on learning has shown to increase student engagement and boost problem solving and critical thinking skills, creating a classroom environment buzzing with the sounds of active learning. There are scores of news articles and social media posts of teachers and students using state-of-the-art technology to maximize the learning experience. Do you know of an educator who would like to incorporate more STEM-related technology in their teaching?
