Recently we were at the IPON educational event in Utrecht. It’s an event that revolves around educational innovation and IT.
IPON for educational innovation and IT
IPON is a two day event all about innovation and IT in education. This year marked it’s 9th anniversary. It’s an event centered around introducing anyone in the education industry to new technologies and ideas that can be used to improve education. Various uses and applications were showcased during this two day event.
The showcases included, but were not limited to:
- Educational methods,
- 100+ workshops,
- Learning analytics,
- augmented reality,
- educational apps,
- social media in classrooms,
- working in the cloud,
- digital identities,
- …and more.
We’re excited that we were able to be a part of this important event. On February 7th and 8th we were there from 9:30 AM until 17:00 PM spreading the word of our digital to print magazine for the classroom!
A digital to print magazine for every classroom
It’s no secret that the classroom is becoming more and more digital. Kids are finding their way to the internet and using the newest innovations and IT before they’re ever mentioned in the news. It’s important that they learn to make informed decisions when acting on the internet, and not only that, but for many, their future now depends on whether or not they master those internet, innovative and IT skills.
Jilster aims to combine all of the above. By having students create a magazine project together, they learn about working together online, making informed decisions, working in the cloud, image editing, magazine editing and so much more. The flexibility of the online editor allows teachers to incorporate different kinds of assignments, all in one platform.
Once the magazine is completed, the students can share their magazine online (for free) and alternatively also order a printed copy of the magazine they digitally created. A cross over into the real world from the internet world. Some things stay on the internet, but some things can become real; like a Jilster magazine!
