As such, the following Q&A aims to introduce EdTechTeacher readers to the metaverse and how it may impact education.

Coaching can feel isolating, even outright lonely at times. Despite this, coaches hold great power to affect change in teaching and learning. When effective, coaches have the opportunity to change the mindset of teachers, move districts forward, and inspire innovation.

Mastery Learning is defined as: An approach to classroom instruction that empowers every student at every level to progress with confidence. The teacher uses flexible pacing to guide students through a cyclic process of preparation, demonstration of knowledge, and feedback until there is a mutual agreement between the teacher and individual student that the student is read for the next cycle to begin.

Ever been interested in Japan? Well, Japan is interested in you! Well, more specifically, your classroom. LoiLoNote School is a cloud-based classroom support system, based in Japan, looking to help schools from all over. In the pursuit of augmenting human potential and improving education worldwide, we’ve found that traditional education methods are not enough to foster active learning, in an increasingly digital world, especially when they involve unilateral lectures for students without providing them the opportunity to apply their own knowledge or collaborate effectively. The benefits of active learning are wide-reaching across cognitive, ethical, and social competence, which bleeds into culture, knowledge, and experience to form more well-rounded, confident individuals. As we considered the best ways to access these benefits, our educational software came into fruition and has continued to be developed ever since.

We’ll look at five EdTech organizations that give the kids unique educational experiences and one that focuses on assisting teachers.
