10 Ways Edtech Benefits Students
• Technology enhances collaboration among students
This is particularly a manifest in the way students share ideas and work on academic projects together through online groups. More specifically, learners can set up a web-based project portal where they share research findings, discuss and communicate throughout regardless of whether one is at home or school. It is technically effortless.
• Higher levels of literacy in technology
Usually, the more one uses a digital gadget, the more he or she learns about it and not just through it. A simple illustration here is when one buys a phone, installs an App he never knew its use before and over time, becomes an expert at it. Today’s job market is specific to certain requirements such as computer skills. This means teachers who integrate edtech in learning prepare students for any challenge that relates to technology in the job market.
• Automated data and information systems at school
Schools that admit thousands of students yearly cannot be able to cope with such numbers were it not for automated systems. Here, edtech comes into play when teachers prepare student database on a range of issues such as names, grades, performance, and results. This way, it is easier to know who is who in a school setting. Management of classroom affairs is another good example to this effect. With technology, teachers are able to monitor the progress and behaviors of students.
