Key education themes focusing on achieving global education success:
Effective teaching is the key to successful, collaborative and personalized learning, which in turn creates better prepared students, more prosperous nations, more secure societies, and more engaged global citizens.
Promethean’s Education Strategy Group explores and facilitates technology’s role in realizing the promise of more effective educational systems locally and around the world.
Through combining leading edge research, pedagogical expertise, and policy and practical insights, our approach demonstrates the impact of the long- and short-term return on investment in education technology—a theme central to the realities of 21st Century Learning.
The Education Strategy Group focuses its efforts around six educational themes that are key to achieving global education success:
- Teacher Effectiveness—examines how technology can help teachers in every aspect of their work;
- Curriculum Development—surveys the way the face of learning is changing, especially in critical areas such as science, technology and mathematics;
- Curriculum and Assessment Assets—considers how technology can enable shifting curricula to be linked with learning assessment;
- Data-Driven Decision Making—pursues insights into how educators can use data to improve individual and system-wide performance;
- Student Achievement—studies how technology best facilitates personalization and collaboration in teacher/student and student/student interactions;
- Education Continuum—explores how technology supports learning system success throughout schooling and into the workplace.
Collaborative, small group learning, encourages project-based activities where students interact and collaborate, fostering the intellectual synergy of many minds sharing knowledge and working towards a common goal together.
A focus on collaborative learning changes the roles of students and teachers and leads to exciting opportunities for high-impact interactions and confidence-building teamwork. Promethean’s Collaborative Learning Solution was designed to facilitate transitions from teacher-led activities to student-led projects while empowering teachers to differentiate instruction and maintain control in the classroom. Utilising the vast range of resources on Promethean Planet, teachers prepare collaborative projects in advance for different learning levels. After a quick assessment using Promethean Learner Response Systems teachers can assess the class to then divide them into smaller learning groups based on level of comprehension and learning styles.
During project-based learning, students work as teams to complete assignments, incorporating rich multimedia applications and content. Students present their work as a team and group comprehension is gauged based on assessment results. Teachers provide immediate feedback to students and utilise the remainder of class time to bridge gaps in comprehension and personalise instruction.
The world beyond the classroom is full of educational experiences waiting to be explored. Schools around the globe are re-envisioning ideal learning environments with new technologies that break down the barriers of classroom walls and create opportunities for teacher and student learning anywhere, any time.
