SPEAKER SESSIONS

Edtech in action

15 November 2021 | 12:20 - 12:40 | Who said motor skills can’t be enhanced in an e-learning setting?

Online learning is here to stay! Teachers, parents & therapists are in continuous search for online learning tools to transmit proper educational content. Fine & gross motor skills were one of the most challenging domains to target online. Many barriers obstructed schools, teachers & therapists from covering this area, required mostly for daily living & writing skills. Parents expressed their need for guidance to stimulate their children motor’s skills. In collaboration with Raymond Education a leader provider of Educational Resources, a break-through solution will be presented during the session, put together for online learning of children aged 3 to 6 years & individual tutoring. Developed by specialists, it is built to make the stimulation of the motor skills effective during e-learning with no/minimal assistance. Allowing the child to manipulate resources independently, teachers to target specific objectives & therapists to animate online sessions without further preparations.
