👩🏻🏫 Education in the digital age part 3 👩🏻🏫
In the face of the second wave of coronavirus disease in the world, the form of remote learning has returned in many schools. 👩🏻💻 Of course, teachers feel more comfortable with the experience of such education in the online world. Maybe this is a good time to broaden your horizons and learn about new tools that can support the teaching process?
Of course, during remote learning each of the teachers, lecturers had to assimilate video conferencing tools. They are even an obligatory part of learning during a pandemic. These programs allow for remote transfer of knowledge. The information heard live and explained is much more friendly for students than reading textbooks or encyclopedias. During this form of teaching there is also an option to ask questions in case of doubts on a current basis. Image transmission also brings with it advantages. Seeing your professor or classmates gives a more human dimension to remote learning. During quarantine, it allows to satisfy the need for contact with others, and to some extent fulfil the desire for other people – after all, man is a social being. 👥
The learning process can help… Internet! We often forget that in addition to spending time in it for fun, you can use it to deepen your knowledge. 🤓 Many state organizations, textbook publishers or universities offer free materials or ready-made, interesting lesson scenarios. It is also easy to find interesting materials for students – like inspiring interviews or scientific experiments. There are also a huge number of pages with courses in every field – from learning a foreign language, through mathematics to learning programming. The Internet has many opportunities for self-development.
There are also applications available on the market that reflect the tests from school benches. They allow to create quizzes, which have random questions or the order of questions. This functionality provides the students with a higher probability of not working in groups during the check. 😉 Another useful option is to determine the correct questions – then, after the test is finished, the students’ answers are automatically checked and the percentage of the whole work is calculated. Some of these tools offer negative points for incorrect answers or the weighting of the questions. Such automatic validation is surely a facilitation for teachers – they save a lot of time. It can be a compensation for the time spent on entering questions into the system. 💁🏻
