As educators, we’re all excited about the opportunity for students to learn 21st Century skills and STEM with new hardware and software technology. The possibilities are endless, but tech alone doesn’t get the job done – it takes great teachers, the right curriculum and a bit of management.
I recently started working with a company that has done some amazing work teaching kids STEAM concepts through hands-on, project-based instruction in after-school programs and camps. To support better student learning, they developed Talent Box.
Talent Box makes it easy for students and teachers to get started with a STEAM learning program or take control of an existing program because of its simple, focused design:
- As a personalized learning platform, students work at their own pace
- Teachers can assign different tracks to different students based on interest and ability
- Tracks all contain hands-on project-based work for deeper learning
- Topic domains include Coding, Building, Art & Design
- The system shows the path to completion along with progress
- At the end of each level, students receive badges to show mastery
- The 22 learning tracks can be scheduled over multiple years
When I was teaching Intro to Computer Science, I would have loved taking advantage of Talent Box to make my work easier and help my students excel even higher in their learning. It’s all here in the box!
Stay tuned for upcoming discussions on STEAM learning in K12.
