Can Technology Help Them Learn?
Though parents are understandably leery of too much "screen time" for their children, Education Technology (EdTech) provides teachers with an opportunity to reach their students in ways they couldn't before. When used effectively, educational games, apps and other digital content can increase students' engagement, leading to stronger tech skills and potentially better performance overall. If you have an idea for an educational game or app, join our upcoming EdTech Challenge: Revolutionize Learning for Urban Children. It begins on July 1st and is open to adults 18 and over, anywhere in the world—and there's a $7,000 prize for the winning idea!
