Omnimundo, a primary and nursery school in Antwerp, Belgium, has a large number of immigrant pupils from underprivileged backgrounds. They are new students with extra challenges. Olivier introduced the digital learning platform i3LEARNHUB in his classroom to maximize the learning opportunities of his students. He was surprised by the results.
Finding a way of teaching that complements the learning trajectory of each student is often a big challenge. Olivier Dijkmans, teacher in the elementary school Omnimundo, has established that the use of ICT in combination with an innovative didactic approach is the most efficient way to take up the challenge.
"We offer our students the best possible support by letting them use custom programs and the Internet."
How i3 helped
The online learning platform i3LEARNHUB opens up a new world of teaching. With free access to thousands of teaching activities, Olivier can easily see how his fellow teachers use the platform, build on their work and ideas, exchange lessons with his colleagues and adapt the exercises to the needs of his students.
Streamlined homework. The division of work and the follow-up of tasks has never been easier. Through a single interface, Olivier can distribute, collect, improve and archive the tasks of each student.
Strong visual support. Some students need extra support to get the most out of their learning experience. i3LEARNHUB helps them with a rich library of images, videos and animated apps tailored to the curriculum. In this way, the learning materials are not only much clearer, but also more interesting.
More independence. Strange words or expressions? No problem for Olivier's students; they can easily open the built-in search function to find the meaning in a safe way.
Technology has quickly become indispensable in Olivier's classroom and now plays an important role in the professional development of his students.
"Technology has transformed my classroom into a strong learning environment that carefully prepares my students for a bright future."
