Technology continuously develops at lightning speed, allowing us to deliver teaching and learning individually. We believe IEPs should mean exactly that – Individual Education Plans. Teachers also need to record each child’s progress and with the STEP Program, results are harvested online – making life simpler and smarter.
The 21st century classroom has more adaptability than NASA had throughout the whole of the Apollo missions.
Working closely with Microsoft, we will integrate ICT hardware and software that enables the STEP Physical Literacy Program to fall seamlessly alongside creative development targets. Throughout 2017 our development of interactive STEP consoles will enable children’s performance to be measured even more accurately and with less burden on supervising staff.
“Empower every student to achieve more.”
Working alongside Microsoft for almost three years now, we have sought to identify how technology, hardware and software, can be used to improve the accuracy of STEP, the outcomes and the student experience. We have exciting plans in the making that we will look to realise with the further assistance and support of both Microsoft and Microsoft Education.
STEP believes that the value of every child is worth investing time and resources. When students are able to improve their physical literacy through daily activities, working alongside a highly trained teacher or assistant, they are able to unlock abilities and feel more confidently about themselves.
We report outcome data on students three times during the program to showcase the improving profiles of our students and to document the impacts that STEP is having on individual students and student participants as a whole. STEP is empirically proven to improve overall academic performance, athletic ability, classroom participation, and social-emotional well-being.
The STEP student embarks on a journey that starts with fun, 7-10 minute exercises twice per day, and as they encounter success, they naturally feel empowered which encourages curiosity, open-mindedness, and optimism.
