270 Pre-Service teachers will have access to Prowise Presenter for the duration of their Early Years degree courses at Macquarie University. Today the first two groups were provided with access to their accounts and shown some of the features of the lesson creation software.
This is a very exciting opportunity for the 270 Pre-Service teachers who like all teachers are expected to design digital lessons for teaching and learning. The quality of their lessons will be assessed by their lecturers during the years of their training. The Pre-Service teachers will also want to use their digital lessons during their practicums.
However in the passed the success of using digital lessons designed during training depended on a number of conditions eg whether the educational setting had the same hardware, software, or even the same versions of software. The question of whether the digital lessons could be used on any of the devices at the practicum site usually made the deployment of lessons very difficult.
Prowise Presenter is the perfect solution for Pre-Service teachers. As a cloud-based software there is no installation required, is automatically upgraded and can be used on any device anywhere .These young teachers will be able to use the lessons they have designed on any web-enabled device.
Once they have graduated from Macquarie University they will be able to take their lessons with them to their new place of employment using a variety of options. Prowise Presenter is a powerful tool for all teachers. They can save their digital lessons to a private folder and because it is stored in the cloud they can access their lessons at home or at any education setting on any web enabled device. If they are working casually across a number of campuses or if there is a sudden room change as long as there is a web-enabled device they will be able to use Prowise Presenter.
Prowise is aware that Pre-Service teachers do not always have access to the latest technology so providing them with a Presenter account they are ensuring that these young teachers can be digital leaders when they participate in their practicums and when they finally graduate.
The Prowise Presenter software enables teachers to link to websites, YouTube videos and galleries of content. Teachers can also save their resources to the Global Community and Prowise currently has over 1,000,000 resources saved globally for teachers to access. There are games for learning, tools for assessment and for teaching coding.
These teachers will also have access to ProConnect another very important element of the software which enables them to share their screens with any BYOD device in the classroom. Students can then interact with the content and re-share to the teachers ‘interactive screen their answers and ideas for collaboration.
