Using technology in the classroom is a great way to spark creativity for students of any age, and it can help create the optimal digital learning environment. During our trip around the world in season 2 of MDM on the road, we’ve seen many different ways of teaching and innovative classroom setups.

In this episode of Lessons Learned from the Road, a follow-up series to MDM on the Road, we go coast to coast and take a look at some of those creative environments that we’ve come across. The teachers featured in this video are from Immaculata-La Salle High School in Florida and Feaster Charter School in California.

The MDM on the Road series tells the stories of teachers and IT professionals that are transforming learning with iPads and our Mobile Device Management (MDM) designed for Education. This MDM on the Road episode was filmed on the iPhone Xs Max and iPad Pro and edited with Final Cut Pro.

Video Transcript:

Alexis Mabe, Science Teacher at Immaculata-La Salle High School: In order to really try to prepare my students for life outside my classroom, I wanted them to do a lot of collaboration. And I found that with group work, lots of times it was hard for them to hold each other accountable and for me to really keep track of where they were in the process.

Federico Padovan, Chief Inspiration Officer of Mosyle: Season 2 of MDM on the Road took us to some incredible schools around the world transforming education with Apple devices. As we reflect back on our time spent on the road, certain themes developed and we wanted to share with you some of our lessons learned from the road. Today we look at some of the innovative learning environments that we encountered along the way.

Alexis Mabe, Science Teacher at Immaculata-La Salle High School: The framework that I came up with, I call it the coworking classroom, and it’s modeled after coworking spaces that a lot of startup companies use. So they share resources, including the knowledge that other people have in the coworking spaces.

Mark Fraiser, 8th Grade STEM teacher at Feaster Charter School: Three years ago our school announced that they would be building a large greenhouse in the middle school quad. What they built was a 30x20 ft high tech greenhouse with its own computer brain, it’s climate-controlled, a truly remarkable piece of machinery. I took it on as my elective and it has just been a breath of fresh air in my own teaching.

It’s allowed me to bring in this idea of humanitarianism into my science curriculum, that science really has a role in helping humankind and we’re able to produce a pretty amazing amount of food. We’ve donated over 3,500 portions of leafy greens in three semesters, which I think is pretty amazing.
