We walk into our office and from the point we pass the security unit to the point that we reach our workstation, everything is technically operated and we wouldn’t even access to the building without our finger print or swipe card, then to move up until the machine you work every day, you will have to use passwords, unlock and then go access lockers with different other security passcodes to reach the different files. Our life has become such a matrix at one point that we are living with so much technology involvement in our hands.
Can you think of a day that you walked out of your house without your mobile phone? I bet you’d run or drive back home just to get it because you basically can’t contact anyone, calculate anything, order anything, search up online or for whatever the matter is you will feel handicapped the whole day without it. It’s good that technology has evolved so much that it helps us on our day to day activities immensely but at the same time, it’s in question whether we have become too dependent on all that? I recently saw a girl saying that the society has come to a point where they even search up google to see if there are people who have similar relationship issues like them. It has grown to the extent that people can’t even make a personal life decision by themselves. However in this read, I’m focusing on how technology can be used in a classroom setting.
Using markers to keep writing and deleting can only waste money on marker pens but if you can use electronic whiteboards to help writ up and clear up whatever needed, will be a great thing. Some even enable the people to undo and redo so even after you clear up if you need to go back, that can also be done. Internet can also be incorporate in the classroom to browse anything real time and show clips to enhance the understanding of the lesson.
We always keep student performance records on a separate student progress report but we can use a bit of technology to store these different marks and grade achieved by a student throughout the year. The teacher is able to know what position this student stands and the reasons behind the grades. If it’s lack of capacity, what can they do and if it’s just lack of interest, what actions could be taken. This gives a complete report and picture of each student as at the present date.
These are some of the ways that educational institutes could use to enhance the success of their teaching techniques in class sessions.
