Through the partnership of Knowledge Channel and STEAM Craft Edu, students in these five schools will now have better access to technology and multimedia learning resources, enabling them to learn through interactive games and videos.
Developed in the Philippines and working in collaboration with Australian educators, STEAM Craft Edu has successfully brought Planeteers to more than 20 schools nationwide. “The game helps students gain interest in learning as they complete scaffolded quests aimed at delivering STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) skills and identities, including critical future job skills like coding, robotics, and innovation,” as described in their profile.
STEAM Craft Edu also provides teacher training to further equip teachers with the essential skills of integrating technology in the classroom.
