The Bridge Between Technology & Teachers
Get Involved And Be a Part of The Conversation
One of the biggest problems with new technology in education is educators not being able to connect with other people who have successfully integrated new technologies into the classroom for advice and support or even experts in the industry for help and resources. CREATE Connect solves this problem by offering an open platform that STEAM educators at all levels, CREATE ambassadors, makers, industry partners and educational leaders can interact with each other, discuss common issues and create solutions for integrating technology into the classrooms, labs and makerspaces. This in turn facilitates every student having the opportunity to access, experience and learn about groundbreaking technology and educators can realise the learning benefits technology provides with confidence.
About The CREATE Education Project
The CREATE Education Project brings together game changing technology with inspirational content and creative minds. This collaborative platform is designed to provide FREE resources and support to help educators to introduce and embed 3D Printing and other STEAM and maker technology in the classroom. These include professional development resources, lesson resources, project ideas and inspiration. Contributors and community members are provided with a network of people embracing the same passion for sharing and improving access to education.
In order to ensure everybody has the opportunity to benefit from 3D printing and other new technologies we reached out and asked educators and industry leaders what the challenges were and how can we make the best of the opportunities. We aligned these with our core values and CREATE Education Project was the result.
Why CREATE Connect?
Designed to provide a collaborative platform to help educators to introduce and embed interactive technology such as 3D Printing and other STEAM and maker technology in the classroom. Contributors and community members are provided with a network of people embracing the same passion for sharing and improving access to technology in education.
CREATE Connect is a professional community platform for educators where members will not be subject to content unrelated to them such as political posts, adult content and other distractions. No data will be sold to third party organisations and the negative behaviour that is increasingly associated with the big platforms will not be tolerated. All the benefits of digital connections without the concerns!
