New methods of learning in classroom

New methods  of learning in classroom

The classroom has changed from yesteryears. If you’re above the age of 20, it probably bears only a passing resemblance to how you learnt algebra or the human anatomy in biology.

 Today’s kids are the first generations that are growing up with technology, while they are ‘digital natives,’ teachers, parents and school administrators – are immigrants to this world. With plethora of smartphones, tablets and other gadgets, children are already immersed in a world of interactive, engaging content, and their attention spans for traditional methods of engagement are diminishing rapidly.

The digital era holds tremendous promise for schools, though on one hand, it creates an opportunity for children to take e-learning in a manner that appeals to their technological sensibilities. On the other, it provides a platform to democratise education and take knowledge to the farthest ends of our country. Inclusive education can now be a reality; where each child can be taught in a personalised manner, at his own pace. The advantage: not only do toppers excel further, but the average learning levels in a classroom are raised as well.

Digitisation

Digital board classrooms are becoming a hub of inquiry, discovery and collaboration, enabling teachers to simplify complex concepts that help students to understand and provide a better and faster learning experience. The concept of digital classrooms has captured many schools off late, with the introduction of digital classroom solution platforms like digiclass. This envisions an India where students, teachers, parents and schools collaborate to make knowledge ubiquitous and take education to an all-new level.
 These digital classrooms have converted traditional classrooms into an interactive sessions by combining state-of-the-art hardware with syllabus-compliant multimedia content. The technology-enabled tutoring and test preparation provides a holistic environment for a child that aims to nurture academic potential and develop a generation of successful Indians.

It’s said that 80 per cent of what people learn is through audio-visual media which clearly shows the role technology plays in our life. The Information and Communication Technology (ICT) solutions have given teaching a different dimension – it has taken it to a higher pedestal. Teachers have moved away from the traditional ‘blackboard-and-chalk’ method, by making use of interactive teaching tools that make learning a real life experiences.
Teaching options

This multimedia-enabled teaching tool helps teachers to customise their teaching sessions, keeping the learners’ pace in mind and to create interactive classrooms in order to maximise classroom learning in a limited time period. Products like DigiClass have preloaded repository with several thousands of animations, self-explanatory diagrams, 3D interactive animations, worksheets, quizzes, e-books and several hours of experiments, all designed to make the classroom sessions more engaging. 

The use of digital classrooms not only engages students, but also empowers the teaching community to create interactive sessions where classrooms become spaces for learning and discovery, and the children under their care excel in all spheres of their K-12 experience.

Combining technology with education brings a whole new concept to the education system thereby reducing the burden of school bags that the students need to carry to school every day. Over the past few years, it has been observed that the introduction of modern education and the role of technology in schools have undoubtedly improved the overall performance in school children enabling them to perform better with more zeal and enthusiasm. 

Today when we talk of a ‘brave new world’ emerging, digital classroom education brings a new dawn breaking in the world of education. Introduction of this technology makes it possible for millions of students to educate themselves through interactive, self-paced routine and developing own style of learning by contextualising the content.
