TECHNOLOGY IS BENIFICIAL IN THE CLASSROOM!

We use technology every day, but does it belong in the classroom? Studies have shown that computer technology in the classroom has beneficial use on the students’ way of learning, faster and easier ways to prepare work for teachers and students, and more visual learning.



beneficial ways of learning

Computers in the classroom are becoming commonplace to the benefit of teachers, parents, and students. Not only do people in school use them but the students’ parents can use the same technology as their children to keep up with how they’re doing in class. Many school systems realize how necessary it is to make sure students have access to functional computers and internet availability, which will help equip them with skills they need in the 21st century. Computers and other technology are the future of the classrooms therefore we need to incorporate them into schools now.

visual learning in the classroom

Teachers buy software that allowed them to record and annotate lessons and post them online. . Recording the lectures help the students go back and see the film or listen to the recordings back over again to plot out every aspect in the lessons, also making this easier to take notes on. With teachers created videos and interactive lessons instruction that used to occur in class is now accessed at home.

“We need technology in every classroom and in every student and teachers hand because it is the pen and paper of our time and it’s the lens through which we experience much of our world.” -David Warlick

faster and easier ways to prepare work in class

Students use after school time to view lectures and demonstrations online before class allowing instructors to use valuable class time for more advanced concepts. Through this new advanced system, instructors or teachers are allowing students more time to learn bigger concepts in depth in the class and smaller details online. Having more lessons online lets the students manage their time better in and out of the classroom and giving them more resources to study.
