The rise of digital education
With the progression of technology, digital learning is becoming more dominant as opposed to traditional learning. Information is easily accessible at the tip of our fingers and learning is now seamless.
Educational technology has shown various changes while undergoing this digital transformation. The teaching process, assessments and even the physical appearance of the classrooms have all gone through modifications thanks to the digital revolution.
Here are some of the advantages of technology’s influence on digital education:
Not every student is the same. Different students learn at different paces and it is essential to understand this. With e-learning, each student can be attended to with maximum attention and their learning needs can be facilitated efficiently.
Sometimes communication between the teacher and student can be ineffective and cause a hindrance to learning. With technology, the classroom can be converted into a network and the teachers can post assignments effectively. Furthermore, the students can also convey their queries to their classmates and teachers with a record of past discussions, for reference.
eBooks and Quick information
The days of browsing through large books, looking for information, have gone. With the information available more easily, due to the wide array of resources, a lot of time is spared and can be used more productively. And with eBooks, students save a lot of money and energy which is exhausted lugging heaps of books along, for their classes.
Assessing the work of students via digital means can be documented for the teacher’s reference. This data can be cross-checked to analyse trends across the class amongst the students. Also, with such information, they get a much clearer idea of the student’s advancement and can intervene more effectively.
Multiple device access
With e-learning, the students can access all their classwork i.e. notes, assessments and lessons, across numerable devices. Thanks to this, they are not restricted to the option of bringing in a particular device for their class and the curriculum can also be opened across multiple devices at the same time, should there be a need.
Online courses can easily be adapted to screen sizes across various devices. Course developers can make changes with ease because the changes will effectively be reflected in all versions.
As a result, institutions are becoming more flexible with online courses. Technology can prove to be a valuable resource for teachers and students by giving them access to new opportunities.
