AN OPPORTUNITY TO ENGAGE - Embrace their language
Connecting with young learners presents amazing potential. Technology offers a wealth of tools to engage students, but discovering these tools is not an easy task. Most children appear to have a sense of what is considered educational software and immediately disregard it as something that is not organic to their ambitions. Finding a tool that channels their expectations and aspirations helps them to sustain the engagement and makes the learning experience meaningful and immersive. This YouTube generation curates knowledge through video, and increasingly communicates through broadcasting. In the social media world they’re growing up in, anyone can be a broadcaster. With TouchCast, teachers can now use broadcasting tools to present information and to let their students communicate in a way in which they feel most comfortable and most creative.
TouchCast allows educators and students around the world to easily create comprehensive and engaging interactive videos… and they have fun while doing it. All you need to do is look into the eyes of these youngsters as they say: 3, 2, 1, Action!
