A five-stage instructional model—engage, explore, explain, elaborate, and evaluate—can guide students to a deeper understanding of math.

Some adaptations for hybrid classrooms, like digital manipulatives and instructional videos—will be worth keeping when all students are back in the room.
When students who would never sign up for a robotics or coding class do so because we’ve introduced it to them, it’s a win-win for everyone.
Have you always been interested in flipped learning but you’ve never actually put it into practice? Remote education offers the perfect chance to discover all the benefits of this methodological approach.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with flipped classrooms, the concept can be explained very simply. Flipping a classroom means turning learning structures upside down: instead of introducing a new topic with traditional lectures, teachers prepare a presentation and hand it over to their students. They will watch it or read it – depending on the format – on their own before the class. Subsequently, class time will be used for hands-on education.

Today, the educational process is almost completely different from the educational process 1 decade ago. Teachers were trying to make the process more fun for children and teens, but so they can learn. Nowadays, with all new technology, it’s definitely more fun and even efficient.
Special equipment for educational purposes is designed to make the knowledge transfer process a lot easier, quicker, and more effective. Throughout the years, the educational process has been evolving, new tech has been added, and the next logical step would be to implement VR technology into the process.
What would be the results and effects on the overall process? Would it make the learning process easier and more efficient? It seems that yes, VR pack kits implementation would cause positive effects on the process. Here are the 5 ways of how VR might soon impact the educational process.
Adaptive behavior is defined as the set of skills that individuals should be able to perform at a certain age. Examples include social skills, cleaning, and personal grooming. Professionals call this life skills social competence, or adaptive behavioral functioning.
Children with special needs might be delayed in these areas. Part of the assessment for children with special needs is their ability to perform behaviors like those listed above.
As children mature, they can display more complex adaptive behaviors. Preschool-aged children learn to get dressed on their own and tie shoelaces. Third graders can order for themselves at a restaurant. Sixth graders can do certain chores and manage their allowance. Teenagers become more independent by taking public transport on their own, drive and perhaps even do grocery shopping.
Coding is becoming one of the biggest trends to hit education since virtual reality. Because of this, parents and schools all over the globe are interested in teaching children to code. While teaching children to code may not turn them into a billionaire like Mark Zuckerberg, it certainly comes with a lot of benefits. Many of the advantages that I speak of are unknown to general public.
So instead of watching people jump on the coding bandwagon because we said so, we decided to write an article that discusses the benefits of learning how to code as a child. That way parents and schools can make an informed decision. Believe it or not, some of the advantages that we are about to share may shock you. Well, without further ado, here is our list of the benefits of learning to code as a child.

The future of education is deeply linked with the development of new artificial intelligence technologies and computing. Even while the debate is still ongoing as to what extent AI will replace teachers' presence. AI in the U.S. Education keeps growing at a reasonable rate. It is projected to go as high as 47.5% by 2021.
It’s always a challenge for many teachers and school administrators to maintain or level up parent engagement in schools. They don’t like attending meetings and school-related activities because they believe they’re not that important. They could always keep themselves up to date by asking their children or fellow parents. However, this shouldn’t be the case because whether they like it or not, it is their responsibility to provide quality education to their children, including having a good relationship with teachers, school principals, and others.
Now, what can schools do to enhance parent engagement? How can they encourage parents to be more active in their children’s lives in school? For many years now, schools have been using Edtech as a way of improving teaching and learning. It’s about time they use Edtech as well to strengthen the participation of parents in schools.
Here are some great ideas for boosting parent engagement through Edtech:
On September 7, faculty and students from Purdue Polytechnic teamed with local businesses and tech-focused higher-education institutions to bring lessons in robotics and manufacturing to local youngsters during week-long summer camps
