Why integrate technology in classroom?
Technology is Omnipresent and it is touching our almost every aspect of our lives. Yet, most schools lag far behind when it comes to integrating technology into classroom learning. Many are just beginning to explore the true potential tech offers for teaching and learning. Properly used, technology will help students acquire the skill they need to survive in a complex, highly technological knowledge based society.
It offers facilitators effective ways to reach different types of learners and assess student understanding through multiple means. It acts as an interface and enhances the relationship between facilitators and students. Technology helps make teaching and learning more meaningful and fun.
What is smart Class?
Smart Class is a virtual classroom for students. It provides instructor led education solutions for classroom. Smart Class is a convenient entry point to many exciting ways of e-learning including interactive lessons, activities and quizzes. It uses all interactive modules like videos and presentation and these visually attractive methods of teaching become appealing to students who are already struggling with the traditional method of teaching in a classroom. In fact, smart classes are almost like watching movies as sometimes, animated visuals are used to teach a point. This kind of visual is both eye catching and young students can easily relate with them. This is because the audio visual senses of students are targeted and it helps the students store the information fast and more effectively. And then, there is the advantage of utilizing much of the time wasted earlier in drawing or preparing diagrams on board. Smart boards have all these information in memory and can be presented during the time of class.
All the facilitators are well trained and very enthusiastic to conduct smart classes. The students are keen to experience the smart class. The school anticipates that the students as well as facilitators will be highly benefited from Smart Class.
