Why do you use a PC?
Stream a movie
Help your little one with homework
Or all of the above?
Most likely it’s all of the above and a lot, lot more for your little ones. Here’s what to expect in 2018 from the world of PC for Education :
1. You’ll see more of Makerspaces
A Makerspace is a place where students can create, invent, tinker, explore and discover using a variety of tools and materials with the help of a PC. The fact is that hands-on learning makes a world of a difference to your children, and schools have started taking notice of this. The tech-savvy ones are either building or upgrading existing Makerspaces with PCs so students of all ages can experience the concepts taught in class come to life.
2. Cloud Storage will be the way to go
Cloud storage is an online hub accessible 24/7 to access all your data from anywhere as long as your child has access to the internet, a PC and an email ID. Dropbox, Google Drive, One Drive - there are quite a few options out there which are both free to use and reliable. Besides putting all learning material in one place, using cloud storage makes sure users never lose any kind of data - keeping your child’s hard work safe.
3. Games will be a way of learning
With the focus of classrooms shifting to practical learning over rote learning, games are an efficient and enjoyable way for children to learn as well as practice concepts taught to them in class. The best part about games is that they balance entertainment with education for children of all ages. Some examples include alphabet bingo to brush up English vocabulary, Less Than or Greater Than for Maths and the classic Capitals of the World for Geography. The more you look up on your PC, the more you’ll find!
The biggest take for 2018 is to get children confident and prepared for the future by making PC-enabled learning a habit.
