If you teach a goldfish how to climb a tree, it will always think that it’s the dumbest species alive. The problem with today’s educational system is that it only focused on helping one type of student while ignoring the rest of the other students. This is why certain students advance while others stay behind despite working really hard. Fortunately, for today’s technological advancements, there are a variety of strategies to educate different types of students to ensure that everybody gets the success that they deserve.
One of the major strategies that have been tested and implemented in multiple academic institutions is allowing students to bring the laptop to school. A lot of schools also provide laptops for their students to further advance their learning experiences. Through various trials and test, it has been proven that laptops in the academic environment have tremendously improved the students learning experience in all types of subjects ranging from math, science, English, art, etc. Here are the multiple reasons why a laptop in school can help improve students learning in the classroom:
Student sitting in the back will be able to see the lecture
Sometimes, classrooms don’t have enough seats in the front row. Students would have to come to class early to get the front row, while the rest of the students will get the back row. The problem with this seating chart is that students in the back row will not be able to see the powerpoint presentation. This can hinder their learning experience in the classroom. Fortunately, with the laptop, students can download the powerpoint presentation before the lecture and have it on the computer so they can follow along during lecture time. This can give the students the opportunity to fully experience the lecture as if they were sitting in the front row.
Enhance collaboration, active learning and teamwork can help enhance the learning experiences for students. Fortunately, with the laptop, students can log in to the platform to work on assignments and collaborate with other students in the classroom to discuss the lecture material. Professors can also provide exciting games and projects on the platform for students to work together. This will provide a convenient opportunity for students to collaborate on a challenging and fun activity without leaving the comfort of their own home.
Improve organization with a lot of deadlines, projects, and exam, it’s difficult for students to catch up or remember everything that is due. Fortunately, with the laptop, students can create and organize a calendar or schedule to help them remember assignment deadlines, exam dates, study schedules, and projects. This can help improve their organizational skills and improve the students GPA.
Since we are in the generation of technology, it only makes sense to improve and fix any mistakes that we have made in the past. In the past, there might have been students that are left behind because of the wrong teaching style, but now that we have technology on our side, there’s no excuse for anyone being left behind.
