Focus & Engage: How Edtech Can Boost Student Outcomes

With the widespread integration of interactive technologies and persistent noise pollution, students and teachers are in distracting and often uncomfortable environments to learn and teach. In a recent survey by Logitech and Education Week, 74% of teachers agreed that students’ level of physical comfort while using educational technology impacts their level of engagement in learning “some” or “a lot.” Research shows that when educators are equipped with the right tools, student engagement and learning outcomes can increase.

Join leaders from Madeline Mortimore, Global Education Innovation Lead at Logitech, Alice Keeler, EdTech Influencer, and Bedston Burrell, Technical Operations Analyst - Audio Visual Services at Edina Public Schools as they discuss the latest research, strategic frameworks and tactical tips and tricks to drive student engagement to overcome today’s classroom challenges in this webinar.

Each month we publish blogs and newsletters full of digital learning, funding, professional growth, social media, and STEM resources. Below are items from our blogs and newsletters that educators turned to the most in February.

1. New Tools to Detect AI-Generated Writing
OpenAI, maker of the controversial ChatGPT, released a new tool designed to help teachers detect work that has been written by artificial intelligence tools—and potentially curb cheating.

2. SPOTLIGHT! On Black History Month
Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in US history. Since 1976 every US president has officially designated February as Black History Month.

3. Walking, Cycling, Swimming … Virtual Fitness Challenge
Spice up your motivation for running, walking, or cycling (or any distance-based exercise) by taking on The Conqueror’s Mount Everest Virtual Challenge. The challenge takes you through a breathtaking 40-mile journey to the summit of Mount Everest—the highest peak in the world.

4. Tools for Students to Combat Cybersecurity Threats
Australia, India, Japan, and the United States have launched the Quad Cyber Challenge to draw attention to ongoing cyber threats against governments and schools. The initiative's website links to resources for students created by federal agencies, including Kahoot quizzes on cybersecurity and similar topics.

5. Robotics Platform That Uses Trash to Teach Coding
To students, crumpled plastic water bottles and milk cartons may seem like trash, but to brothers and entrepreneurs Rohit and Sidharth Srinivasan, these common everyday items represent an opportunity for equitable STEM education. These and other common items provide the basis for Trashbots, the Srinivasan brothers’ robotics platform for schools.
