Ensuring the advancement of education takes committed educators, especially those who are open and unafraid to relearn what’s possible. From understanding new discoveries in science and history, adapting to and embracing emerging points of view, and of course, utilizing new methods of teaching, the field is always evolving. Staying on top of modern technologies, such as mixed reality and enhanced connectivity, is critical to advancing education, but doing so can be an education in itself.
In this episode of The Restless Ones, we had the opportunity to sit with Dr. Robbie Melton, Associate Vice President, SMART Global Technology Innovation Center, who has made it her mission to learn something new every day in an effort to help others. Her role puts her at the forefront of teaching methodologies, where she discovers, researches, pilots and implements new technologies across education. From bringing lesson plans from textbooks into immersive learning environments, to advancing the ways students and teachers can communicate with each other, Dr. Melton is committed to partnering with technology companies to deploy the tools and services needed to keep all of us advancing along the learning curve.
