We believe that the way students learn determines how much they learn and how much they retain. 30hands is using technology and techniques to change the way teachers and students work in the classroom to improve learning. Our approach is hands-on iterative creativity for both the teacher and the student through Project-Based Learning and Digital Storytelling.
Technology supplements classroom learning, so it has to be simple to use for both teachers and students, it has to promote higher levels of learning, and it must keep students focused rather than distracted. A teacher’s time is very valuable, and we take that into consideration with our user interface design. We know this from our own classroom experiences.
Be creative, but do it iteratively for better end-products and better learning!
