ABOUT CLASSROOM NETWORKS
The inspiration for the Teacher’s Wall came from classroom modernization programs. Central to classroom modernization are upgrades such as new doors, windows, carpeting, fire alarms, electrical systems, and the most important feature of all – a smart classroom platform known as the Teacher’s Wall.
After updating over 200 classrooms it became evident that we were witnessing the expanded role of the teacher. Teachers are transitioning from someone who is adept at one or numerous subject matters. Several teachers describe this shift as adding a new skill where they add curriculum facilitator; bringing the wealth of global knowledge and media into the classroom.
Classroom Networks Corporation has introduced the Teacher’s Wall, a state-of-the-art, integrated educational platform that recreates and redefines the teaching environment. The groundbreaking Teacher’s Wall transforms the classroom, making it an inviting and exciting place for children, while allowing Teachers to introduce the world’s best minds to their students. Here are some examples;
“Sugata Mitra on TED talks about his Hole in the Wall project. Young kids in this project figured out how to use a PC on their own — and then taught other kids. He asks, what else can children teach themselves?”
“What do rap shows, barbershop banter and Sunday services have in common? As Christopher Emdin on TED says, they all hold the secret magic to enthrall and teach at the same time — and it’s a skill we often don’t teach to educators. A longtime teacher himself, now a science advocate and cofounder of Science Genius B.A.T.T.L.E.S. with the GZA of the Wu-Tang Clan, Emdin offers a vision to make the classroom come alive.”
“John Hunter puts all the problems of the world on a 4’x5′ plywood board — and lets his 4th-graders solve them. At TED2011, he explains how his World Peace Game engages schoolkids, and why the complex lessons it teaches — spontaneous, and always surprising — go further than classroom lectures can.”
The Teacher’s Wall is a platform is designed for Teachers to help support their expanded role and to help them bring the world’s best minds into their classroom. We look forward to working with you and your Team.
