Folsom, CA (USA), July 2017 - "As technology continues to transform teaching and learning, it’s important that solutions are developed with a student-centric, personalized approach to truly engage a student’s mind," said Hardeep Gulati, PowerSchool CEO. PowerSchool, a leading provider of K-12 education-technology solutions, showcased its Unified Classroom platform at the 2017 International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE).
During this year’s ISTE event, PowerSchool created a new interactive experience that combined cutting-edge technology with modern pedagogy. In the company’s Classroom of the Future, attendees took part in a "day-in-the-life" of a third-grade classroom.
At the center of this was PowerSchool’s Unified Classroom, a single, comprehensive technology platform for learning, instruction, grading, assessment, and management of student data. The solution gives teachers real-time insights into each student’s performance, enabling teachers to make data-informed decisions for personalized learning.
In addition, visitors interacted with other new technologies such as 3-D printing, virtual field trips, robotics, 360-degree analytics, and smart speakers to see how all of this comes together to improve student success. PowerSchool’s Classroom of the Future connects the dots between exciting new technologies that exist today and its ability to improve learning.
"As technology continues to transform teaching and learning, it’s important that solutions are developed with a student-centric, personalized approach to truly engage a student’s mind," said Hardeep Gulati, PowerSchool CEO. "The Classroom of the Future integrates a seamless, connected experience with PowerSchool’s Unified Classroom, fostering an environment that engages parents and students, and returns time to the teachers’ day."
Educators and education leaders attending ISTE 2017 had a unique opportunity to interact, engage, and create in an environment that promotes learning, communication, and collaboration.
This annual ISTE event draws more than 15,000 educators and education leaders from around the world to connect with their peers, gain industry knowledge, and see the latest edtech innovations that are empowering educators and driving student growth.
