14 Sep Back to school: How KBR can help you create a future-proof learning environment
As the presence of technology continues to grow in our children’s educational environments, KBR are on hand to future-proof their learning experience by allowing easy access to digital classroom material.
KBR is one of the longest serving WiFi providers, with over 30 years experience in the business. KBR provides teachers and students with a consistent and secure WiFi connection, as well as broadband and intelligent network security solutions, so that they can make the most of the growing technology available in classrooms.
With the new national curriculum for KS1 and KS2 putting a renewed emphasis on computing and calling for ‘computational thinking’ to be taught in order to instil in children the skills which will allow them to participate effectively in the digital world, it has never been more important for schools to have access to a strong WiFi service.
KBR’s services allow pupils to take advantage of the mobile technological devices, such as tablets, smartphones, netbooks and e-Readers, which are available to them. Over the last few years, the use of these devices has multiplied and they are now being used for video streaming as well as downloading data, contributing to children’s learning experience by providing them with a platform for gaining information in a quick, easy and interactive manner. Using these mobile devices, children are able to learn how to carry out independent research and to interact with the teacher and the other children about their findings, developing both personal and interpersonal skills.
All students have different learning styles and abilities, and whilst one approach may work for one student, the same may not be effective for another. Having WiFi allows students to find alternative references on a topic at their fingertips and KBR can help to provide WiFi to support this growing demand.
Access to WiFi in the classroom can also increase a student’s motivation to work, as it becomes an exciting and engaging experience, stimulating their minds and encouraging inquisitiveness.
KBR’s high-grade WiFi can also provide those children who might not get to experience such technology at home with the opportunity to develop their technical knowledge and skills for the future.
KBR’s services also works to support teachers, ensuring that they do not have to worry about slow, interrupted Internet access, and can instead concentrate solely on the teaching of children.
WiFi systems, as opposed to wired technology, also allow Internet access to extend outside the confines of the computer lab. All classrooms can experience high-grade WiFi networks and children can learn outside the classroom, in playgrounds and sports fields, as well as indoors.
