Recently, I had the privilege of speaking with Dr. Connie Yearwood about her elementary school’s implementation of Edmentum programs, and she dropped more than a few teaching truth bombs that really resonated with us. Here are a few words of wisdom that we wanted to share with you to inspire, motivate, and encourage you.
Last summer, Edmentum rolled out video conferencing software, powered by Zoom, for all of our EdOptions Academy students and educators and it’s been a game-changer. EdOptions Academy teachers have always prioritized relationship building, but the ability to easily connect via video is helping deepen student-teacher connections, improve teachers’ ability to provide intervention, and allow students to more quickly and fully get their questions answered.
Because AR allows you to move around and place things in the real world, it promotes exploration and close looking, fosters spatial recall, and encourages physical—as well as social—interactivity. it can be a great tool for learning and might even become an educator’s new best friend.
We’re looking for educators who exceed expectations in the following areas: technology integration, Edmentum implementation, innovation, and student engagement. If you are an Edmentum educator who exhibits excellence or know a colleague who fits this description, share your story, and enter to become Edmentum's Educator of the Year!
SXSW EDU brings together educators from across the world, and part of the Edmentum team had the opportunity to attend this year. We were very excited to connect with educators, attend informative sessions, host a meetup, and even present at the legendary conference. Let’s take a look into the fun our team had while we spent a week in Austin, Texas.
