iClass CMS has partnered with Educators of America to support their mission of connecting educators with technology to increase student achievement. 

 

Educators of America works with schools around the world – from New York to New Delhi – to provide teachers with technology and tools for success. In addition to supplying schools with the latest digital technology, Educators of America also hosts professional development and enrichment seminars for teachers. Classroom technology is constantly evolving, and it is important for teachers to stay up to date with the latest innovations.

Edtech is a powerful resource for increasing student success. Studies show that the use of digital tools in the classroom increases student engagement, collaboration, and problem-solving.

Schools to Consult with Parents over Smartphone Usage

Offer

Minister for Education and Skills Richard Bruton T.D. recently announced that the Department of Education will soon publish a circular requiring schools to discuss the use of smartphones and tablets in schools with teachers, parents and students.

The use of smartphones by students while in school is something of a hot topic as of late and many schools are anxious for the issue to be addressed.

As part of the Education (Parent and Student Charter) Bill 2016, a new law requires all schools to discuss various issues with parents and students and to enact a Parent and Student Charter that complies with the national statutory guidelines, something which the smartphone issue falls under.

As part of the discussion, schools will be required to engage with parents and students in regards to several areas of this topic:

  • The appropriate use of smartphones and tablets in schools
  • The restrictions required to ensure proper usage
  • If schools should allow such devices to be used outside of class time

As noted by Minister Bruton at the Teachers Union of Ireland conference held on April 4th, the use of smartphones and tablets by young people is an area of concern for parents and teachers alike, so hopefully the oncoming discussion will prove fruitful for all parties.
