With the advanced technology, learning has become all the more fun for children. With an increasingly interactive classroom technology, children can now learn faster, while teachers and educators can hold their attention for a longer time as the students start enjoying their lessons unlike earlier where studies were a mere chore. Technology is the best possible tool that can be used in a classroom to make students feel engaged and improve collaboration with them. Keeping these factors in mind, different schools, across the globe, have incorporated technology to make education interactive. Here are some of them that have really helped, which you too can use in your classrooms:
- Play games – There is no kid on earth who doesn’t love to play games. Using computers and interactive devices to play educational games, based on different subjects, has been found to keep the students involved and interested in learning.
- Use video streaming – It is known to all of us that a picture says a thousand words, but what we don’t consider is the communication power of a video. Using videos in classrooms help create a more complete and clearer picture of a given topic. If it is a bit difficult for you to create new videos, consider searching on YouTube as you might get relevant video clips to complement the lessons.
- Make use of blogs – Although it might sound a little difficult initially, you can try this with slightly older children as it has been found to be really helpful. Ask them to upload their work in blogs. This is a great way for students to display their hard work. This will also help students take a look at each others’ work and they can post suggestions and comments on others’ work, which should be ideally monitored by the teacher.
- Use social media – If you think that using social media won’t be a good decision when it comes to dealing with kids, you are missing out on something major. Since your students are likely to be already engrossed in it after class, there is no harm in using it for teaching purposes.
These are some of the ways in which technology makes learning more interactive and fun. Try using other creative ideas to make the students feel engrossed and attentive while they learn their lessons.
