To keep students engaged in the classroom, implementing technological equipment to complement coursework can make a big difference.
Some students might often feel like school can be a mundane part of their day but that certainly doesn’t have to be the case. One aspect of what engages learners and makes things interesting is approaching tasks in a fun, educational way. All the more reason to introduce different tech products for specific projects! Technology evolves quickly and one of its many uses, for instance, can be to explore real organisms and cells using the magnifying lens on a USB Digital Microscope, which can open up a world of amazing possibilities for your Science students. Even being able to Skype with a professional scientist in another part of the world for an interview through the Califone USB webcam or Diggiditto™ document camera can motivate students completing research projects. In addition to that face-to-face communication, directing student group for any subject matter to use their imagination and create movies can bring forth a sense of teamwork as they work together to apply what they’ve learned in class. Beginning readers can also benefit from visual tech in a refreshing way when integrated with the Diggiditto™. Students who need to improve their reading skills and language fluency can practice in an interactive manner by being equipped with the new Califone AV2 that functions as an eBook.
Simply turning pages in a book won’t always capture your students’ attention but if you can turn their learning experience into more of an innovative, hands-on adventure their willingness to learn and excel in their assignments will reach new heights.
