The pandemic has taken a toll on all our institutions, and schools aren’t exempt. School leaders know that schools are closed, but teaching must go on, and; learning must go on.
Schools have moved to online learning. Educators are working from home, delivering classes to learners over the video, preparing lesson plans, collaborating with other educators, amongst many other tasks. Educators are working harder and longer, and many are exploring the edtech at their disposal. It is a big change that requires school leaders to manage their educators’ motivation to prevent loss in productivity and burn-out.
Here are a few strategies to make sure your educators remain motivated and online schooling continues smoothly.
It has been a very long and challenging two-year period for schools all around the world. And if you are a teacher, you probably can relate. But you made it through and now you can finally relax!

Growing up, most of us had a teacher who refused to implement technology in the lessons. They had their trusty old textbook and thought that everything that’s written there would remain true through the ages.
However, that’s not how education works. It evolves rapidly, thanks to technology for the most part. According to Promethean, the focus on boosting student engagement with tech has increased by 29%. And yet, the implementation of EdTech is the priority for only 39% of U.S. schools.
Today, we’re going to take a look at the role technology plays in today’s education and why more schools should give it a priority.

Educating today's students for tomorrow's nonexistent jobs can be a challenge--one educators should be prepared to meet.
The long-time Educator's favorite app, Google Expeditions, was discontinued today. A replacement app is available now for educators: VR EXPEDITIONS 2.0 from RobotLAB Inc.
These student engagement strategies can help educators create authentic learning experiences for all students using digital tools.
The digital transformation of the economy has impacted every industry. Some of the most significant changes from that transformation have been in education.
New digital developments like remote learning, artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality (VR), and augmented reality (AR) all have the potential to radically transform how education is delivered and experienced.
Educators and EdTech developers are working to apply these innovations to the industry. Some of their experiments have already had a major impact on classrooms around the world.
It is pretty amazing to think about how far we’ve come with technology over the past three generations. Things our grandparents couldn’t even begin to imagine are now the things our children take for granted. With as far as we’ve come already, it can be hard to believe that we are just beginning to scratch the surface of what is possible going into the future.
Opportunities for our children to make a difference in the quality of our lives using new technology are boundless. In particular, the field of robotics and robotics engineering is exploding and will likely be a major draw for young talent in the coming years. Giving your child the opportunity to “nerd-out” in robotics is fun for them now, but it has a very real potential to lead them straight into a dream career as well. And what a better opportunity to reinforce those skills during this Coronavirus (COVID-19) quarantine!
Robotics is a ton of fun no matter what your background is in. If you are preparing your kiddo for their first robotics competition, here are some things to keep in mind.
We at RobotLAB understand the importance of doing something with your kids and keep them entertained during this Coronavirus (COVID-19) quarantine. That's why we want to share with you eleven STEM activities to do at home!
