Edtech Firm pi-top Helps Educators Transition to Remote Learning

Posted Apr 13, 2020

While teachers and administrators around the world are facing unprecedented challenges, pi-top is committed to helping in any way that will support teachers and students as they continue their learning. 

 

With their latest product, pi-top [4], transitioning to a virtual classroom is simple. pi-top [4] allows students to connect to the internet and access productivity tools including Google Classrooms and Office 365. Teachers can easily assign existing classes to their students and track their progress while they’re at home by using the pi-top [4].

 

While still functioning as a versatile computing device, pi-top [4] combines digital making, coding and practical projects into a single platform, making it easy when schools reopen to turn take-home pi-top [4]s into school-based devices. 

 

Included with pi-top [4] is Further, pi-top’s software learning platform, containing over 100 hours of projects for students to explore. Educators can easily sign in with Clever or Google Classrooms and sync your classes and students with Further to save you having to manually set them up. 

 

Teachers will also be able to access classroom features such as applying standards to challenges in Further, manage classes of students and assign challenges to them. Additionally, pi-top partners with other leading education companies to provide PD professional development for teachers to learn how to use our tools, and we also provide onboarding services for teachers.

 

To help ease the transition, pi-top is hosting several webinars. The latest one on exploring remote learning options can be watched here and future webinars on remote learning, how to continue your Computer Science programs, and doing hands-on projects at home will be announced soon.
