Digitization has developed a firm footing in our lives now. Schools are slowly looking at technology as an opportunity to develop teaching methods and resonate with students on a technology level.
There are a number of ways in which digital education is transforming teaching methods.
No more blackboards
Teaching with a whiteboard, chalk, and markers are now a thing of the past, and teachers have shifted to making use of projectors, VCD, DVD players, and eLearning system to display tutorial videos and short sessions online to help understand that learning can be fun too.
Teachers have started using videos and some nice visuals to make the concepts interesting and thus making the sessions interactive.
Advancing with technology
Students spend most of their time on their laptops, their phones, and their iPads. Knowing what sources students can refer to, online, and knowing which websites offer the best information can be a great way to guide students.
Usage of PDFs
Books are now used in the form of PDFs. Sending students the notes, references, and other information in PDF formats that can be easily accessed on laptops, phones, and tabs is a good way to encourage students to choose to study better and to enhance the digital or hybrid learning process.
Training students on subjects by conducting fun online tests from time to time can create a good learning environment for them. Students can be given online quizzes and assessments that they can take from home, replacing general homework that they find excuses for.
