The biggest challenge faced by teachers is holding a student’s attention for a significant amount of time and explaining concepts in a way that stays with them long after they’ve left the classroom. PCs can help overcome this obstacle by making classrooms a place for sparking curiosity and imagination.
Here’s How You Can Bring “Innovation” In Class Every Day:
1. Virtual Reality
Virtual reality presents students with a whole new world to interact with. While it may seem like a distant dream but it’s now closer than ever with easily accessible tools like Google Cardboard, Poly and Blocks that give interactive learning a whole new meaning. The best application of VR in the classroom is by incorporating Virtual Field Trips in your lessons. With just a few clicks, your students can experience the wonders of the world in the comfort of their classroom - whether it is the Arctic region or the Thar Desert!
2. Augmented Reality
A close cousin of Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality ‘augments’ or enhances a student’s view of the real world. There are many ways you can optimise it for your classroom with one way being a scavenger hunt. Place QR codes around your school to give out clues to students in the form of text or images. This mind-blowing technology captivates students, gets them excited about learning and allows you to truly create a classroom without boundaries.
Exposure to new-age technology paves the way for groundbreaking ideas. Adopting PC-enabled tools or techniques marks a sure step towards bringing innovation in class. What’s more, a culture of digital learning breaks through the routine and is one of the many ways to keep your students motivated.
