Digital Learning Day showcases creative ways students can learn

kinston | March 03, 2019

In Lenoir County Public Schools, it could be called Digital Learning Daily, but the national day of app-rich activity designated as Digital Learning Day gave teachers and students throughout LCPS a chance to showcase the creative ways they use the digital tools that have become commonplace in their classrooms.“I saw excellent examples of learning in our schools,” Melissa Lynch, the district’s digital learning instructional specialist, said of Digital Learning Day on Thursday. “School social media feeds were flooded with examples of student work, work by students who are engaged in activities that allowed choice and creativity in showing their mastery of standards.”At E.B. Frink Middle School, sixth-grade students worked out math problems on their iPads, a device that’s been instrumental in helping teachers individualize instruction and allowing students to learn at their own pace and in ways that best suit their learning styles. Frink seventh graders studied for a social studies test by working in teams with the app Quizlett, which lets them quiz each other, quiz themselves, practice flashcards and play memory games.Second graders at Banks Elementary School listened to Dr. Seuss books on their iPads, accessing the books through QR codes and using pencil and paper to write about the beginning, middle and end of the stories. Third graders used Keynote videos and the Instant Alpha app to create images that drove home their lessons about the solar system.

TeamViewer Launches Solution for Modern, Fully Privacy-Compliant Online Teaching

TeamViewer | September 29, 2021

TeamViewer, a leading global provider of remote connectivity and workplace digitalization solutions, today announced a newly developed solution TeamViewer Classroom that enables interactive collaboration in schools, universities, and other educational institutions. TeamViewer Classroom is available across the Americas but will initially focus on European markets as it is the first fully GDPR-compliant solution from a European global player that does not use third-party providers. This means that all data protection requirements of the Ministries of Education of the European countries can be met. A special focus is put on functionalities that go far beyond the possibilities of simple online meetings, such as the joint editing of uploaded documents, digital boards, separate rooms for group work as well as real-time surveys within the learning groups. Through extensive moderation rights, teachers can guide interactions among participants and document the outcomes of meetings. In addition, teachers can store their documents online so that they can be used for other learning units at any time. Connecting other various learning platforms is also possible via plugin and open API. Digitization in education is an important task. The fact that we need to make progress in this as a society has become very clear in the last one-and-a-half years in the context of the Corona crisis. With our new development TeamViewer Classroom, we are contributing to digital progress in schools and universities. Through our many years of cooperation with governmental institutions and major customers from various sectors, highest security and data protection standards are a matter of course for us. These, along with many other functionalities, have now been incorporated into Classroom. It was particularly important to us to secure the fundamental right to education without having to compromise on the fundamental right to data protection. Hendrik Witt, Chief Product Officer at TeamViewer Classroom is developed by TeamViewer end-to-end in Europe and hosted and operated on its own servers. It complies with all the regulations of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and places a special focus on accessibility. The completely web-based solution only requires users to have a common browser on their PC, laptop, tablet, or smartphone and therefore also works on older devices and independent of operating systems. In addition to providing and operating the solution, TeamViewer also provides technical support.
