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 will interact 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 gives teachers time back into their day.”
