-The Learning Partnership Appointed as Promethean’s Exclusive UKI STEAM Partner-
Global education technology provider, Promethean has partnered with The Learning Partnership to support the wider integration of technology into education and to encourage the engagement of students and teachers in STEAM subjects.
With its roots firmly embedded in education, Promethean understands that STEAM subjects are high on the educational agenda as a result of a major skills gap in STEAM careers. Recognising the potential that great content can have on supporting teachers with difficult subjects and helping students to develop the skills they need for a more technologically focused future; Promethean has partnered with The Learning Partnership to champion effective use of edtech to enhance STEAM resource provisions and inspire learning.
The Learning Partnership aims to support global engagement in science, technology, engineering and maths by building and delivering engaging programmes and competitions into the curriculum that are inclusive and exciting. Working on connecting schools with relevant businesses within the industry, The Learning Partnership aims to create mass engagement in STEAM for students and offer an array of time saving resources for teachers.
Rachel Ashmore, Head of Promethean Academy, commented: “As an education technology company, Promethean aims to support the integration of digital content into classrooms that create collaborative and engaging spaces for subjects that are usually considered as challenging. As the STEAM focus is at the top of the curriculum, Promethean is working exclusively with The Learning Partnership to develop content and lesson plans that help to encourage students to engage with STEAM and provide them with skills that will set them up for life.”
The Learning Partnership has a bank of powerful, existing content resources that promotes the delivery of an engaging STEAM curriculum, which can be enhanced through the use of the ActivPanel. The ActivPanel supports interactivity with apps, resources and other edtech devices to create a truly collaborative classroom. Working collectively, Promethean and The Learning Partnership can strengthen school STEAM provisions through content and hardware that support the wider use of immersive and interactive technology in STEAM subjects.
Aulden Dunipace, CEO of The Learning Partnership, commented: “Engagement in STEAM subjects in school is difficult if teachers and students are unable to utilise their technology to the best of their advantage. Working with the market leading education technology company, who shares the same values and passions as us, will allow us to collaborate to promote the delivery of a STEAM curriculum through technology – helping to encourage engagement and provide powerful resources which will ultimately help to improve student outcomes.”
