How can your child benefit from PC based learning

 

“What we learn with pleasure, we never forget.” - Alfred Mercier. Personal computers have changed the way we work, the way we create and even the way we learn. From finding a firm foothold in almost every office, today computers are being adopted by schools as an integral tool for education. The use of PC based learning offers a range of benefits over traditional methods such as increased interactivity, simulations, access to wider resources and facilitate an in-depth understanding of subject material. It offers immeasurable value as a learning tool, not just at school but even at home.

1. Resources

With PC based learning, students aren’t limited to what textbooks have to offer. Computers for school offer a wide range of educational software and learning programs to for ease of learning. Along with that, use of the internet allows to students to tap into a vast network of learning tools either at school or even at home.

2. Enables Easy Revision

When computers are used for learning, students aren’t restricted to a lesson and revision module, but can actually take lessons as many times as they like in order to ensure a strong understanding of concepts. This means that revising and revisiting core concepts and lessons become easier.

3. Safety

Simulations keep students safe while allowing them to understand scientific concepts from the ease of their chair. For example, they can conduct virtual experiments and see how chemicals react with other. Not just that, simulations allow students to perform the same virtual action over and over again strengthening their understanding of the material.

4. Deeper Learning

Research suggests that PC Based learning can facilitate deeper learning so that students can master concepts and ideas. They can then use these lessons and apply them to the world around them, demonstrating both convergent and divergent thinking skills.[1]

Computers use in schools and at home are a vital learning tool for children. Along with offering the benefits above, they are conduits to a world of information. They can also be used to facilitate interactive learning which has been seen to help children learn better. [2]
