Setting Up for Success
“Accessible information is growing exponentially every year, so the notion of using a traditional classroom setting for rote learning is rapidly becoming obsolete. We are now in a knowledge-based economy,” stated White. “Before, there was a straight ladder up for success, but we now need to train our students to be ‘rock climbers’ where they can navigate, traverse, and really build some of these very critical soft skills. Working collaboratively with the Prysm display also really helps to foster teamwork and leadership, great skills to have no matter what career path they choose.”
Collaborative Spaces and Endless Learning Opportunities
Prysm makes our classroom a collaborative space. It’s thrilling to be able to use technology to work together on projects and achieve such promising results,” exclaimed White.
She concluded, “To be successful in today’s collaborative world, the ability to constructively work together is a critical skill, even at a very young age. Prysm is creating the opportunity to change the traditional pedagogy: We’re hugely excited about the potential for breakthroughs and learning enhancements that we have at our fingertips.”
