Technology Integration

SMARTpath specializes in coaching educators to better understand and utilize technology in their everyday practice of instruction. We believe when educational staff better understand and utilize the technology available, student engagement is increased and understanding improves. We work closely with educators and their organizations to customize content to the technologies and resources available to participants down to the curriculum level, where appropriate. This ensures a balance of reality and proper expectations.

Lock in Learning

Escape rooms are engaging exercises and when designed properly, foster communication, collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, and innovation.  The only way to be successful is through the use of lateral thinking, communication, and teamwork. The same simple concept can be easily applied to your classroom thus creating amazing opportunities for inquiry based, project based, authentic learning all while building cohesive teams and reinforcing communication and teamwork.

 

Lock in Learning acts as an instructional support tool providing content driven games to support current lesson plans. These games introduce, review, or reinforce concepts/lessons in your classroom.

Your staff will walk away fully equipped to provide additional engaging and thought provoking escapes in their own classroom.

If you’re looking for a new, innovative way to engage your staff and students, build upon the 4 C’s (communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking) all while providing a component of team building – give us a call. You won’t regret it!
