PowerUp EDU to Revolutionize the Classroom
“If we teach today’s students as we taught yesterday’s,
we rob them of their tomorrow”, John Dewey
Believing every child should reach their full potential, today TPS Interactive announces a new division focused on serving the next generation’s classroom; a classroom that provides better learning results, is less stressful for teachers to lead and costs less to equip and operate. The Powered Up classroom.
The United States has been a world leader in education for generations, but now, student test scores indicate US classroom effectiveness is falling behind other parts of the world. Our teachers have increased challenges with new requirements, standards, and protocols.
Other industries have been transformed by utilizing technology solutions to dramatically improve effectiveness, productivity and empower its leaders. In contrast, today’s classroom is largely unchanged from the classroom of our parents and grandparents. Today’s popular handheld devices have limited use in classrooms and are not well utilized. Often, students are even directed to “power down” those devices at the beginning of the school day. Schools that purchase technology only, sometimes find the products fall short of the desired outcome. Additionally, while ideal for consumer and business environments, schools find that student-provided technology also falls short in classroom effectiveness. Student devices may be brought into classrooms with inadequately equipped infrastructures, and teachers may lack sufficient training on the integration of that technology into a cohesive classroom solution.
PowerUp EDU simplifies the classroom by creating learning environments that dramatically improve the teachers’ ability to motivate & engage learners, to teach more effectively with reduced effort, thus improving student engagement, motivation, retention and learning. “PowerUp EDU provides our classroom with solutions, not just technology or products. The solutions provided in their EDUTalk training series enable teachers to better engage students, focus on individual student needs & help reduce the teacher’s cognitive overload at the same time” said Tamara Spafford, Executive Director of The LionHeart School.
PowerUp EDU is bridging the gap between technology and instruction for more positive results in today’s classroom. PowerUp EDU is a One Stop Shop for consulting, professional development and integration of systems technology into cohesive solutions for today’s classroom, more effectively leveraging the power of individualized and personalized learning at a lower cost than other alternatives.
