Tech & Learning’s new Awards of Excellence program, The Best Tools for Back to School, seeks to help teachers find “the most impressive products and solutions that will support their work in any learning environment”.
“As we head into another uncertain year in education, technology will continue to be one of the key drivers for innovation,” says Tech & Learning Group Publisher Christine Weiser. “Our judges chose the winning products recognized here for their versatility, compatibility, value, and ability to help schools solve challenges and support continuous instruction.”
Technology has played a huge part in keeping students safe, connected and learning throughout the lockdowns and disruption, and despite the circumstances, teachers have found ways to reach, teach and engage their students virtually, bubbled and socially-distanced in the classroom.
As schools return to classrooms, it is now more important than ever that teachers have effective tools to help their students catch up with lost learning, keep up with the current curriculum and retain all this information at the same time. A seemingly insurmountable task!
Some technology has proved to be more useful, effective and innovative than others to help in this process. Tech & Learning’s judges deemed HUE Animation Studio a standout product in the Primary Education category for “helping students, parents, and teachers succeed as they head back to school”.
The full list of winners can be found on Tech & Learning’s website.
HUE Animation Studio is a STEM.org approved, movie-making starter kit for children aged 7-13. It places kids in a highly engaging and immersive environment where they can enjoy the freedom to express themselves creatively.
This versatile, affordable and educational kit makes it easy for teachers to create exciting, project based lessons – in any subject area – that children can keep and will remember for years to come.
Whether animating on their own or with friends, children love the thrill of making stop motion movies and they can do it for hours! It is the perfect gender-neutral activity for imaginative play, enabling children to create pretend worlds using both hands-on artistic and technical computer skills.
“We are passionate about film in our school. It provides exciting opportunities for content density and strengthens skills across the curriculum. The flexible neck of HUE’s camera made this so easy to achieve at our desks, and the quality of the resulting footage left students feeling proud of their work. You could have heard a pin drop in the room: total engagement was unquestionably achieved. Classrooms are full of digital natives and our world is ever-more saturated by the moving image. Having the equipment to be able to champion film and filmmaking not only welcomes a flourishing industry into schools, it also engages students in a medium they enjoy and can manipulate with ease. Using HUE’s products have made creative, cross-curricular learning easy to plan and achieve, and helps us in our mission to make learning relevant, independent, and enjoyable.”– Charlotte Skeoch, Northwood School
