In an era of high accountability and increasingly challenging standards, the demands on teachers are greater than ever. Everyone knows that, but we’ve noticed something else that might be going under the radar a bit. Teachers are getting better than ever—and technology is a critical component of so many great things that are happening in today’s schools.
The Future of Education Technology Conference (FETC) shines a light on every facet of educational technology. We’re excited to see all the exhibitors’ booths and learn about new ways in which teachers, administrators, and students can use technology to deepen learning and prepare for future careers that don’t even exist yet.
On our part, we’re showcasing training and technology that help educators and leadership transform their schools. Our solutions enable them to:
- Track student progress in real time with an easy-to-use mobile app
- Collaborate through professional learning communities (PLCs)
- Engage students with research-based instructional strategies
- Collect data and leverage it for instructional decision making
- Use practical strategies to plan and implement classroom technology
If you’re going to FETC, stop by the Learning Sciences International booth and check out the LSI Tracker, our mobile-enabled app that helps teachers conduct short-cycle formative assessment throughout every lesson without interrupting the learning. Learn how we’re integrating rich technology and professional development with our groundbreaking PD Packs. See how short-cycle formative assessment can be conducted with ease with a simple tap of a tablet.
Not only is technology helping teachers work more efficiently, but it’s also keeping students engaged in their own learning. In many ways, it’s putting the joy back into teaching and learning. We are thrilled to be a part of this new era in education, and we look forward to meeting with forward-thinking educators and leaders at FETC.
