BSD Education

Empowering the kids of today with the tools for tomorrow

We partner with schools to make it easy to integrate technology curriculum, including coding into all subjects, without the need to hire skilled professionals.

We provide an online learning environment, customized curriculum and professional development to empower every teacher to use technology in the classroom.

Technology education is absolutely vital for children to succeed in the future. Most schools recognize this, but it can be difficult to deliver it effectively.

To understand why this was the case, we conducted research, working directly with schools and students across a multitude of socio-economic, cultural and intellectual backgrounds.

We found that whilst schools want to do more with technology, there are three fundamental barriers to integrating it effectively:

Confidence: Teachers don’t usually have a tech background and so can see it as risky and unfamiliar. Professional development for an area that is new and technical can be hard to access

Content: Technology is constantly changing. Curriculum can therefore become quickly outdated

Community: Teachers don’t have a community of practice or peers to learn from and share ideas
