Technology has transformed today’s education, for good reason. From laptops, mobile apps, to the educational robots, modern classrooms are embracing technology to make learning more interactive, more comprehensive for the students.
The overwhelming use of technology in classrooms has ensured that we are going to see some revolution in the field of education. Here we have come up with the pieces of technology that can make it possible.
3D printing will help teachers and students to get their “life size” imaginations on the paper. For example, 3D printing technology will deliver the creations and the projects in joined or solidified form. If a student has created windmill using Photoshop, the output through 3D printer will “as it as”.
Virtual Reality devices have taken the learning to the next level. They allow students to see or interact with the things. Once student put on the headgear, they can explore underwater life or Greek buildings (virtually) while sitting in the classroom. This way, VR brings the lessons to the life.
Video learning is gaining momentum in classrooms, especially when it comes to distant learning. Video learning enables both teacher and student to exchange study materials/notes when one of them is absent. Besides, it can be used to communicate with the parents.
Wearable technology or wearable devices are electronic devices (like watches) that can be worn on the body. They are popular among fitness enthusiasts for counting calories, heartbeats and tracking how long they walk. They are also introduced to the students. These devices enable the students to capture the notes instead of writing them; use media for research; and track the procedures in real time.
So these are the pieces of technology that will take learning to the next level and ensure better engagement.
