To prepare students for the constantly evolving world, educational institutions today seek to achieve educational excellence by integrating technology in education. Innovative instructional pedagogies, Teacher Professional Development Programs, STEM education and future skills are crucial in addressing the needs of the current learning environment.
Let’s take a look at the features of School Learning Solutions that help in delivering 21st Century education.
School Learning Solutions deliver STEM education which focuses on the integrated disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Subjects like App Design and Game Design give students the opportunity to apply their STEM knowledge and skills through hands-on learning and projects rooted in real world challenges. It equips students with future skills and prepares them for STEM careers which include Green Power Creator, 3D Printing Engineer, App Developer and more.
School Learning Solutions organise STEM Competitions that encourage school students to participate in categories like App Design, Game Design, Movie Making, Graphic Design, 3D Design, Coding, Web Design. These competitions allow students to apply Coding, Design Thinking, Cognitive Thinking, Logic Development, Creative Problem Solving, Strategic Thinking, Motor Skills, Effective Communication, Critical Thinking and Decision-Making Skills to make a positive impact on the world by creating prototypes that solve real world problems. The jury members interact with the students, evaluate, and give their expert feedback on students’ projects that inspires them to do better in the future.
Learning Management System (LMS)
School Learning Solutions offer LMS which supports efficient teaching and learning through mobile device access, personalized learning, collaboration tools, gamification, and competency-based learning. It helps in educational activities which include creating & delivering educational content, making learning more engaging & interactive, tracking student achievement, collaborating on projects, and assessing students and analysing their results.
School Learning Solutions provide a digital literacy curriculum (Ethics & Ergonomics, Cyber Security, Social Networks, Troubleshooting) to equip students with digital citizenship skills, empower them to become digital leaders and ensure a secure & safe digital world. Students learn how to use social media in a safe and effective way –knowing not to post sensitive information, being aware of cyberbullies & scams and being careful not to post identifying/personal information.
Coding & Design Thinking Projects
School Learning Solutions focus on creativity enhancement – facilitating students to practice 'design thinking' and strengthen their coding skills by working on projects in which they can make their own design decisions and come up with solutions to real-world problems. Projects include creating apps, websites, games and more.
School Learning Solutions provide Robotics curriculum that gives students the platform to design, program and build robots. In the process, students develop essential skills like engineering, computational thinking, coding, creativity, leadership, problem-solving, perseverance, collaboration, project management, communication, and teamwork. For instance, students can be given an activity to build a basic robotic vehicle that can be controlled using a remote controller. Students can use the VEX IQ Robotic kit – a pre-moulded hardware kit – to build the robotic vehicle.
Artificial Intelligence (AI)
School Learning Solutions introduce students to the world of AI at an early age where they learn about AI & ML while understanding their real-world applications. Using project-based learning methodology, they allow students to explore and create AI applications for image recognition, build AI systems that play games and more with Cognimates, Python etc. that bring the concepts to life while developing their critical thinking, communication, and creative thinking skills.
School Learning Solutions integrate 3D printing into the curriculum and make the lessons more powerful. 3D printing technology engages students with better understanding of the design process, builds visual learning environments, strengthens problem-solving skills, and encourages innovation and creativity. It allows teachers and students to realize ideas, create projects, take 3D prints of their prototypes they’ve designed, and engage in fun and interactive ways. To prototype a 3D object in the classroom, Blender software can be used.
Teacher Professional Development Program
With School Learning Solutions, teachers get the opportunity to learn new age teaching skills through Train-the-Teacher Program which includes in-depth technical training, training on 21st Century skills, soft skills and classroom management, gamified approach to evaluation of skills and periodic assessments & reports. The program helps build teachers’ confidence and supports them to effectively deliver ICT courses in their schools.
At ICT 360, we provide advanced tech curriculum for schools – grades 1-10 – for AI, AR, VR, Coding, Media Design, App Design, Game Design, Web Design, 3D Printing, Robotics, IoT, Cloud Computing and all futuristic technologies to enable students to become Innovators, Collaborators and Problem-Solvers.
ICT 360 serves as a one stop solution for all ICT requirements of a school. With NEP aligned & STEM accredited ICT curriculum – this unique platform offers Teacher Development Trainings with Certifications, Project PPTs, Lesson Plans, Assignments, Learning Resources, Technical Support, Assessments, Reports, and LMS for students and teachers for synchronous & asynchronous learning to equip them with 21st century skills and prepare them for the tech-driven future.
