Teaching is a rewarding yet demanding career. With long hours and a heavy workload, it’s easy to fall prey to teacher burnout. Without proper support, teachers are in danger of being overworked and not taking care of their own mental and physical health needs.
Technology is rapidly becoming an integral part of the teaching process and can be used to support teachers and make their jobs less stressful. Here’s how EduBoard’s Tech tools can lower stress and help remedy the “no time dilemma” suffered by teachers and students alike.
3 ways EduBoard’s technology is helping save time in the classroom and relieve teacher burnout.
Lexplore frees up time due to quick accurate reading assessments
Identifying children who struggle can be a lengthy and resource intensive process. Many schools use a combination of formative assessments, standardised tests, and observations sessions. Eduboard is helping teachers save time and resources, with Lexplore, a ground breaking method of measuring reading attainment, which uses artificial intelligence and eye tracking technology to offer an entirely new insight into literacy.
By measuring when, where, and how a student’s eyes move in relation to the words they are reading, our paperless assessment quickly analyses their skills across key reading components, determines their attainment, and highlights potential barriers in a matter of minutes.
With immediate, fully objective, and in-depth results, teachers can then work with our dedicated intervention package to support both emerging and fluent readers in their development. In a matter of minutes, this entirely objective assessment now makes it possible for teachers to determine attainment instantly as well as highlight any children experiencing specific difficulties, like Dyslexia in the same two minute test. These results have often taken teachers entire terms to manually collate using a combination of many different paper-based tests.
“200 children went through the Lexplore assessment process in a week. Within five minutes of each assessment we had the results of their reading activity and an accurate attainment level.”
Edutouch LED Panels are faster to deploy and interactive
Unlike traditional projectors, touch screen displays are an all-in-one solution, meaning they are faster to deploy. Staff and students are able to use this user-friendly tool without any training, saving time and reducing related costs.
On the other hand projector based systems have many operating procedures. Loss of time is often experienced when cables are faulty or confusion over where and how to plug in all the various cables.
EduBoard’s EduTouch LED interactive solution saves enormous time not just with the easy technology use and integration, but also with lesson preparation, assessments and importantly student engagement and enrichment. All EduBoard solutions have incredible media rich education resources and tools, for teachers and students. The content opportunity is brilliant.
Utilising software like mozaBook from the interactive touch display, you can integrate ANY of your own resources, documents, PDF, textbooks and share them in class or remotely with students. The EduTouch makes it easy to teach with MS team, Google class, or your preferred LMS.
Marty the Humanoid Robot saves the teacher’s hours with his Coding and Robotics available lesson plans
Coding and Robotics is NEW in the South African curriculum. It is a well-known fact that there are no lesson plans and set formal structure yet. With “Marty” the Humanoid Robot Eduboard has really made teachers lives easy. Over 100 lesson plans and online training are included to turn teachers into STEM champions. Teaching with Marty covers multiple grades and levels of coding in unplugged and plugged mode. Students absolutely love to learn with MARTY. It makes teaching Coding and Robotics an absolute delight.
