McTech 4 Teachers: New things are created away from the daily business

McTech 4 Teachers: New things are created away from the daily business

Digital tools have become an indispensable part of teaching. But how can educators best integrate new technologies into the classroom? The Regional Innovation Center's (RIC) "McTech 4 Teachers" training program offers an answer to this question.

At the end of April, eight educators from middle schools and polytechnic schools took part in a two-day workshop at the RIC. The agenda included 3D printing, laser technology and programming - important digital tools used in the classroom to prepare students for the world of work.

The central theme of the workshop was the question of how these digital tools can be used in a practical way in secondary school lessons. The educators dealt with theoretical principles and learned about suitable hardware and software tools. Particular attention was paid to safety in the use of 3D printers and laser technology. By solving exercises and developing their own projects for the classroom, the participants gained a variety of methods and ideas for their own teaching.

The exchange of information between the teachers was also exciting and inspiring. The participants had a lively discussion about the challenges associated with the use of new technologies in everyday school life. "New things are emerging away from the day-to-day business," was the unanimous tenor.

RIC brings practical knowledge transfer and competence building from business to school

This is precisely where RIC comes in with its NAWITECH educational offering RIC2School, bringing technology and know-how from the business world into schools. The pioneer in technical education and training is an important multiplier in schools to teach science and technology in a practical and innovative way.

We actively support teachers in breaking new ground in order to get their students excited about new technologies and make them fit for the working world of tomorrow," emphasizes RIC Managing Director Dr. Peter Landl, "McTech for Teachers is a perfect opportunity for teachers to develop innovative NAWITECH lessons at the cutting edge, away from the daily school routine!"
