DIGITAL IN THE CLASSROOM: HOW DO WE INTRODUCE IT INTO THE CLASS

“How do we make use of all the opportunities?”


digital learning

I have spoken about this subject in short in previous posts. And that is the introduction of digital technologies into the classrooms for learning. We have already a plethora of computers that were seen as something revolutionary in the previous decades. But now, a laptop or desktop is outdated. We are now moving into a space of AR (augmented reality) and VR (virtual reality). Eye wear and full headsets that will incorporate a whole new way pf learning. A new way which will put the student into a gaming world literally. How will effect the current way of learning and teaching? Because as I also said before the credentials for educators will increase as well.

initials users

As with the introduction of any form of technology, the beginning will be so much fun. But then after a while it becomes the norm. The initial users for schools that are able to afford it will show an increase in grades. It will be this new impressive way to get students involved and engaged. Now, whichever schools are able to use these will most likely not be public schools unless someone donates to these institutions. But hopefully the technology that could increase leaning find its way throughout schools all over America.

all about the money

Like I said before, when schools are able to bring together the finances for the new technology that will aid in a school’s overall performance, then you’ll see a slight jump of improvement then a capping off point. But unless you have some really wealthy alumni that give, you will not see too many public schools with the capabilities for learning that is in the future to come. Someone I know was developing a headset for schools. But relative to the amount of schools out there, it’s not enough money yet to finance. I think technology is easier to bring cost down today when the technology is perfected. Bu that is the downside of bringing to life anything great. Money is not everything, but it’s very important.

BOOKS BE GONE: ARE WE SEEING A EXODIS OF BOOKS FROM SCHOOL

“From hardcover to touch screens.”


new school learning

When i go to the library I can’t help but to think about all the days my mother took my sisters and I as children. And now that digital has graced our presence or major online stores like Amazon, who needs the library. Any book you want is so cheap someone will sell for some low price somewhere. And now the same applies for schools in America. So how long will it take before we see books removed from schools? Students already use their devices for almost everything they do anyways. Why even use books anymore?

the feel of the pages

For those of us that are avid readers, there is something about flipping your hands though pages. But for a younger group of people, the pages don’t hold the real meaning, it’s the content. And with learning going digital, you can now incorporate video content in your books. Before the teacher used to book on a video in the class on the television. But now, you can buy a book with video built already inside. Now, the cost of these books are high, but as time progress and the cost to make them cheaper emerge, then you will see more in schools.

new degree requirements

As the digital takes hold and books are moved out, does this mean new requirements for educators as well? Because if school becomes a lot more technical, then you might see educators needing more specialized training to keep up with the change in times. Because for the longest the teachers had their books with all the answers inside. Now, with the introduction of the digital learning, the teacher no longer holds all the answers. You can now instantly fact check the teacher’s answers.
