It is the hardest part of a teacher’s job. How do you engage the attention of a class of children or young people? Intelligence, patience, kindness: these are all indispensable qualities for that often underrated profession, but, as any teacher will tell you, maintaining the interest of your audience in the age of the smartphone has become a particular challenge.
However, technology doesn’t always have to be an irritating distraction. Of course, employing technology in the classroom is nothing new. Some of us are old enough to remember the exciting possibilities offered by the overhead projector. Or perhaps not.
Fortunately, OMG Edtech offers technology that your students will actually like. Moreover, in a happy combination of two things that don’t necessarily go together, it will also provide real learning benefits. Suitable for students of a wide variety of ages, OMG Edtech products can be used in many different learning contexts.
The AR adventure is ideal for younger children, giving them the opportunity to explore a range of contrasting environments in a 360 degree view using a hologram box.
The 3D Pen can be used in school craft lessons and by university students, allowing them to construct mock-ups of projects. It can also serve as a simpler, quicker and cheaper introduction to 3D printing.
Mercifully, this is all a world away from my own painful childhood memories of splinters and hot glue burns. Perhaps you want to get your students engaged in STEM learning, something which is especially valuable for tomorrow’s market in highly skilled technology-based jobs.
If so, the OMG robot tank could be a perfect fit. Your students can construct the tank and test the build with an app as it is coming along. Afterwards, the final product can be controlled using the app.
Education is yet another area on which technology is having a major impact. OMG is helping to ensure that this impact is for the better.
OMG can help navigate your educational needs through the highs and lows of technology in education. For an informal discussion about how OMG can help, book an appointment here.
