Windows 11 powers a new generation of devices for education’s changing landscape

Microsoft Blogs – 1.18.22

I am so inspired by the continued innovation from our partners, who are finding new ways to meet the ever-changing needs of students, faculty and administration. As schools continue to navigate change, many are finding that one size does not fit all, and as a result are adopting a variety of hybrid learning approaches and embracing remote learning. The value that technology can deliver to unlock these capabilities is impressive. Of course, it’s great seeing Windows 11 at the center of it all, with new tools designed to improve the learning experience and enable better, richer learning experiences. Schools are still expanding and creating new ways of teaching and learning, and I love how the education community is leveraging technology to help students not only survive, but thrive.

How Learning Math Has Changed Over Time

Osmo Blog – 1.14.22 (1.13.22)

Math isn’t for everyone. Right?

Wrong. But up until recently, most believed that they could fall into two categories: ‘math people’ and ‘non-math people’. This means that they felt that math was a skill you’re born with.

This isn’t the only misconception about math. There are several other things we believe about math that have changed over time.

Changing the Game: eSports in Schools

Western Digital Blog – 1.5.22

Josh D. is a high school senior. Outside of classes, he spends more than 10 hours each week at practice and meets with coaches and teammates to prepare for competitions. Some of these competitions take place in large arenas. Others are virtual. They have equipment and uniforms. He, and others like him, hope to follow their passions at the college level on varsity or club teams. Some players even earn scholarships. And, if he wants, he can do all of this from the comfort of his home.

Kids enter ‘a whole new world’ as teachers use technology to help address inequity in schools

Microsoft Blogs – 11.18.21

Eleven-year-old Graham Young is proud to have gotten 100% on a recent book report and is excited about the poster he just made to advertise his fledgling lawnmowing business in his neighborhood.

But what really puts a sparkle in his eyes and turns a shy smile into a wide grin? He did it all himself. With a neurological condition that makes him unable to read or write, Graham has been using tools such as Immersive Reader and the Windows speech-to-text feature over the past year to help him fully participate both in and out of school.

McAfee Blog – 8.16.21

As the new school year gets underway, many students will be returning to the classroom in-person, while others will opt to continue hybrid or remote learning indefinitely. Unfortunately, for families choosing the latter, remote learning could come at the expense of their online privacy.

Why you should learn to learn like a baby

Modular Robotics Blog – 6.25.21

Babies are remarkably capable constructors of connections. When we are under two years old, our brains run in overdrive to create millions and millions of synapses. By the time we turn two, we have more than twice the number of synaptic connections as our adult brains. Over time we pair down these connections as we experiment and learn from life. However, this rich network of connective links is the key to starting to learn like a baby.
