Team TeachPitch have just announced a brand new feature in it’s Digital Skills Program to allow teachers from all over the world to share their technology skills and fully thrive in a rapidly evolving new digital economy.
The new model, called Panel, is a series of tutorials orchestrated by TeachPitch teachers in which they review, comment and ask questions around the use of a specific technology product that could be used in the school or classroom by their peers.
The Panel came about due to the request of the respective technology builders who have the clear desire and aim for teachers to use and understand their product better. Their very first Panel will be organised this August and they are extremely proud and happy to be working with the creative video making technology ‘Powtoon’.
The Powtoon product today is being used by more than 25 million professionals, educators, and students in over 149 countries across the globe. Powtoon’s mission is to empower everyone to create their own engaging videos, presentations, educational materials, and everyday communications – without any design or tech skills. It goes without saying that this mission extends to the classroom; to any project, assignment, lesson plan, or report, be it for teachers or students.
“We are very excited with launching Panel as we feel it has the potential to answer crucial tech questions from both sides of the aisle. On one hand, we have the teacher who is overwhelmed and interested in using a product provided there is good, objective guidance available on how to optimally use it. On the other, there are the technology builders who are in dire need of educators’ feedback for the further roll-out and development of a product they are working on. Through Panel we hope to effectively kill two birds with one stone and educate tens of thousands of other teachers while doing so,” says Aldo de Pape, CEO of TeachPitch.
“From as early as elementary school, up through college, it’s remarkable to watch how teachers and students are coming up with unique and novel ways to integrate Powtoon in the classroom, blending modern tech with traditional learning environments. Nowhere is the ability to imagine and create, more appreciated than in the edtech space, where teachers struggle to keep students focused, engaged, and – if they’re lucky – smiling. That’s where TeachPitch comes in, the more teachers who share their Powtoon experiences and ideas with us; the more we can ensure enriching and engaging experiences for both educators and students alike,” says Ari Fruchter, Chief Business Officer of Powtoon.
The very first tutorial of Panel will go live on August 23rd. As always, do not hesitate to get in contact at email@example.com should you have any further questions or ideas.

There’s nothing special about the energy we sell. In fact, it’s exactly the same energy as all our competitors provide. But there is something special about the way we do it. Where others complicate the process, we simplify it. Where others confuse customers with hidden terms, we’re an open book. And where others do all they can to make as much money from their customers as possible, we do all we can to make as little. Everything we do, we do it differently. Our customers are a privilege. One we’ll never take advantage of.
