I am highlighting several tools from my time at ISTE. In my second installment, I want to introduce you to Texthelp and Territorium. First, teachers are always looking for ways to engage their students and provide them with opportunities to show their mastery of the material. One way to do this is through the use of technology, Texthelp, and Equatio. Tinashe Blanchet and Kori Perkins explain why these are two great tools that can help teachers achieve this goal. Tinashe and Kori express that with Equatio, students can speak, draw, or type their problems and equations directly onto their devices. This allows them to work through the problem in a way that best suits them, and it also gives teachers the ability to see how each student is approaching the material. Equatio allows students to type in their equations and then see a visual representation of the equation. This can be a helpful tool for students who are struggling to understand the concept of solving equations in math. Both of these tools are great additions to any school's lesson cycle, and they give teachers another way to assess their student's understanding of the material.
Secondly, Keith Look of Territorium explains why it has quickly become a global education technology solutions provider, with teachers, students, and schools using its products in over 180 countries. The company's goal is to make learning and skills acquisition more accessible and measurable. Keith informs us that Territorium's solutions enable educators and companies to deliver, test, measure, and record learning in the 21st century. Territorium's use of Blockchain technology solidifies credentialing in education providing an alternative to traditional education portfolios. As a result, the company's products are helping to transform the way teachers teach and students learn.
In this episode, we speak to Tinashe Blanchet, Kori Perkins of Text Help/Equatio, and Keith Look of Territorium. These innovative companies are using technology to help students and educators in amazing ways since the pandemic.
