COVID-19 has disrupted the education sector, changing the industry forever. The shift to outcome-based education increasingly relies on technology to enable new teaching methodologies and strategies for K–12 educators and school administrators. With access to professional development and other tools, educators can adopt new teaching strategies that help students gain the innovative thinking skills and technical skills for innovation that they need for careers in the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
New Skills for Innovation
In order for K–12 students to flourish in a technology-driven world, educators should encourage and help equip their students to gain new innovative thinking skills. Lessons on STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) for girls, coding for kids, and esports only brush the surface of important and modern skills that are necessary for the Fourth Industrial Revolution. However, they are a perfect start for a blended learning experience. Learn more about these skills and how Intel collaborates with partners to enable skill building experiences.
Teaching Strategy and Resources
Developed by teachers, these exemplary unit and lesson plans integrate technology and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) concepts into classroom projects designed for different age groups. These plans come to life when teachers leverage technology into the classroom, aligning standards and promoting higher-order thinking with curriculum-framing questions, effective instructional strategies, and performance assessments.
