Turnover of smart tech­no­cart to La Trinidad Cen­tral School

Sun.Star Baguio - - SPEAKOUT -

THE Smart Tech­no­cart is a com­plete mo­bile lab­o­ra­tory de­signed to en­able learn­ing and teach­ing through use of mo­bile ed­u­ca­tion so­lu­tions, such as tablets and in­ter­net tech­nol­ogy for Kinder­garten pupils. Ed­u­ca­tional app de­vel­ops es­sen­tial think­ing skills among chil­dren. Par­ents us­ing iOS-pow­ered smart­phones and tablets can now down­load for free the Bat­i­bot mo­bile ap­pli­ca­tion, an in­ter­ac­tive ver­sion of the beloved TV… The Tech­no­cart is a com­pact and por­ta­ble con­tainer of 25 tablets for the use of stu­dents; a tablet, lap­top, and pro­jec­tor for the use of the teacher; Smart Bro pocket wi-fi with load for con­nec­tiv­ity; and the Smart One Cam­pus; a learn­ing man­age­ment sys­tem to help ad­min­is­tra­tors and teach­ers to track and mea­sure their stu­dent’s aca­demic per­for­mance. Akin to a cart, it has wheels that make it easy for teach­ers to trans­fer the lab­o­ra­tory from one class­room to an­other and a de­sign made to se­cure every­thing in­side.

Apart from pro­vid­ing an ef­fec­tive tool for ed­u­ca­tion, teach­ers are also given train­ing on tablet ba­sics well as on child and cur­ricu­lum de­vel­op­ment pro­vided by the Com­mu­nity of Learn­ers Foun­da­tion (COLF) to help schools op­ti­mize of the Tech­no­cart.

The Smart Tech­no­cart tablets come pre-loaded with the Bat­i­bot mo­bile app. This is the first lo­cal­ized mo­bile app aligned with the kinder­garten cur­ricu­lum based on the hugely pop­u­lar chil­dren’s tele­vi­sion show. Makes avail­able ed­u­ca­tional con­tent from the TV show into the mo­bile de­vices for mo­bil­ity, ac­ces­si­bil­ity, and ul­ti­mately for a fun learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. Just like the TV show, the Bat­i­bot app is also in Filipino.
