Based on my observations, three key takeaways can contribute to streamlining the technology in any given school:
1. Maximize automation: Enabling teachers to press just one button to get all the technology working for them saves time and irritation at the beginning of every class.
2. Offer BYOD (bring your own device) functionality: Making it possible for teachers to use their own familiar devices such as tablets, laptops and cell phones makes both lesson planning and delivery easier.
3. Provide remote troubleshooting and management of the spaces: Ensuring a smooth and continuous teaching environment is essential for efficiency and peace of mind.
In other words, the goal really is to make a tech-enabled space the teacher’s best friend!
To summarize, the question ‘Who does the classroom belongs to’ significantly impacts its management. Streamlining technology is critical to empowering teachers, whether they teach in the same room all day or move around.
Now I am curious how this works in your country or school.
