The instant access to knowledge, opportunity to dig deeper into subject material and self-evaluate makes the PC necessary for your children’ education both at home and school. Being relatively new not just in India, but across the world, there’ a lot of speculation on what to expect and what to dismiss. Here’ all you need to know to differentiate fad from fact:
Imagine being in complete control of your workday with the freedom to do what’ needed the way you want - feels great, right?
The same goes for when children make their own study plan. With self-paced learning, children can learn anytime and from anywhere, whether they’re at school or at home using a PC. The result of this is an increased interest in studying along with better understanding of subject matter.
Gone are the days when parents would wait for termly report cards and parent-teacher days to know how their child is performing. Now, teachers can regularly send email updates and parents can access assignments and tests via cloud-based portals or a Wikispaces classroom throughout the year. This way parents know exactly where their children stand and can step in before it is too late to help.
BYOD (bring your own device) is an exciting, effective way for students to incorporate a PC’ usefulness in the classroom itself. As students will be used to their own devices, time spent on logging in, setting
things up and learning how to use a PC will be saved to do more of actual learning. Moreover, children can have instant access to resources during class for research, projects and tests.
In our tech-dependent society - increased STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) focus in schools is the need of the hour to meet the demand for jobs that don’t even exist yet! Schools have already begun taking notice by increasing lab practicals, introducing makerspace projects and encouraging activities such as Robot Olympiads to prepare students for their future.
As with everything else, change is the only constant. For your children to be ready for this rapidly evolving digital world, start by selecting the perfect PC and see the difference towards their attitude to learning.
