Computeam help schools to improve educational outcomes through the introduction of well-supported technology. They are the creators of the stunning ActiveWorksheet AR resources. In 2016, Computeam won the BETT Award in the Primary Digital Content category for their ActiveWorksheets resource A Journey Through the Maya World!
We are used to deploying technology in schools to support ICT lessons and to help with the general administration of learning. However, many schools don’t get the best value from their ICT investments because they miss out on the cross-curricular engagement factor that some technologies can offer.
As any teacher knows, it can be difficult to hold the attention of pupils across the entire curriculum. There are subjects that get unruly classrooms to sit up and pay attention, but sometimes you can see their eyes glazing over as you explain number-bonds, or try to get them to focus on a piece of creative writing! Technology offers new and exciting ways to combat this, without putting undue burden on teachers. Here at Computeam we’re passionate about sharing these techniques, something we’ll be doing at our Spring conference in February 2017.
Edtech providers Computeam are inviting teachers to their free-to-attend annual conference taking place on Tuesday 7th February at Chill Factore, Trafford, Greater Manchester. This year’s theme is ‘achieving deeper learning outcomes using technology’, with discussions on how teachers can harness the wow-factor that technology offers to benefit classroom learning.
Manchester-based edtech experts Computeam have been working with archeologist Dr. Diane Davies and the London Grid for Learning to immerse pupils in the Maya civilization. The company’s library of augmented reality learning resources, specifically those looking at the Mesoamerican civilization, won them a prestigious Primary Digital Content BETT Award in London last month.
