Educational software development is the creation of computer applications to facilitate teaching and learning. Common products include classroom management software, language software, student information systems, reference software, and more.
Technology has revolutionized the way people learn and collaborate. It provides immense support to teachers, students, and the education system as a whole.
Educational software developers are creating engaging and interactive programs to help learners of all ages learn more effectively. They also design tools for specific learning disabilities, like speech synthesizers or computers that read text aloud.
Studies have demonstrated the educational benefits of technology-infused curriculum resources. Through the Teacher as Software Developer program, preservice teachers will have a unique chance to be at the center of this process.
Anecdotal evidence suggests the program benefits both preservice teachers and supervising classroom teachers by offering them a resource they can use immediately in their classes, allowing them to focus on curriculum objectives without having to create it from scratch.
