Why SMART amp™ Matters
Why does the idea of “cloud learning” matter to you as an educator? How could it matter to your students as they develop their 21st century skills?
So how do we make that dream achievable and easy to adopt for the teachers who’ve never supported collaborative learning with technology before?
For today’s learners, the Internet is where more and more of them want to do their homework. Students crave collaboration, not just uploading and downloading files. Without a way to connect and share, learners may find the personal device experience during class a bit isolating compared to what they do with their own tech in the “real world.”
And how can we create shared workspaces for meaningful collaboration with student peers and teachers both inside and outside of class?
For today’s administrators, “cloud computing”’ is a compelling way to make learning more relevant for today’s learners, but devices for use with web-based applications also bring implementation, teacher training and ongoing IT support challenges as admins navigate the complex hardware landscape.
How can web-based software bridge the gap between the 1:1 student device implementations that administrators invest in today and the technology they want to consider two years from now? How can they support BYOD and BYOT?
I’d like to introduce you to SMART amp, a powerful new platform designed to enhance teaching and learning experiences by simplifying how teachers, students, displays and devices come together.
As announced yesterday, SMART amp is “a revolutionary solution designed specifically for education. As the ‘glue’ that connects disparate devices, it allows for a seamless transition between learning environments, supports teachers with access to collaboration-rich resources and offers students greater opportunities to get the most from their academic journey. As web-based software, it is accessible from virtually any Internet-enabled device and eliminates deployment costs associated with operating, upgrading or supporting numerous proprietary operating systems.”
Join us as we explore how SMART’s web-based solution can maximize learning on this blog and on our website. Over the coming months, we’ll reveal more about SMART amp and what it can offer learners.
