Dub Labs had the honor of being invited to Microsoft’s Global Education Partner Summit to talk and learn about all things education as well as network with other top education technology companies from around the world.
The education space is certainly at a crossroads; US students continue to fall behind other countries, there’s a wide gap between the haves and have-nots in many school districts, tuition is rising in higher ed with fewer high-paying jobs to help with student debt and more. We’re all aware of the issues.
The good news is, based on what we saw and learned last week, education is poised for an amazing future lead by a group of dedicated and innovative companies and passionate people ready to face and fix the challenges ahead.
Companies like Dreambox and others are building better tools to teach each student based on their unique abilities and needs. Coursera and Khan Academy are creating more ways to reach more students. Textbooks from Kno and Chegg are going digital and interactive, making them more engaging and affordable. App developers are flooding the app stores with millions of great learning based games. Even products like Skype are being used in classrooms to connect students from across the world.
Technology is the future of education and there are great companies, from startups to Microsoft, working around the clock building better resources for the students who will build the future.
We’re super excited to be working with the Louisiana Community & Technical College System to deploy a mobile app to all 13 of their colleges.
Each school will have its own unique mobile app integrated to Banner and their LMS. Students at LCTCS will be able to register for classes, check their balance, make payments, view course assignments, grades, class discussions and more from any mobile device. Mobile access to everything, anywhere is a great way to increase student engagement and retention and students at LCTCS will soon have a fully mobilized college.
