When technology advances so does learning, as better resources and programmes become more easily accessible. Having a designated computer room or readily available laptops in the classroom is a staple for many schools across the UK, in order to help the development of students. For those schools that don’t utilise technology for students, here’s some insight into how it can improve the learning and development of students of all ages.
Benefits of educational programmes and tech
From educational devices to collaborative platforms, there are many ways in which technology can benefit students and teachers within the classroom.
Better educational content
By giving each student access to a computer, a whole new world of possibilities is opened up. Whether they choose to utilise learning resources on the internet or on internal networks, the tech also gives teachers much more scope for improving learning techniques.
Academic learning websites are a popular way of engaging students in both their schoolwork and homework, as the websites can also be accessed from home. But for those students who don’t have access to a computer at home, this is a great opportunity for them to access new learning content whilst at school. Creating equal opportunities for all students is important to ensure every child is given the help they need to fulfil their potential.
Utilising different technology allows schools to cater to students’ different styles of learning. Whether students are visual learners, auditory or otherwise, there are plenty of different approaches a teacher can take with the help of tech.
One method of teaching which is extremely beneficial to students is interactive learning, which Ebuyer now offers with ClassVR headsets. Each headset is fully integrated with VR and offers curriculum aligned lesson plans, allowing students to become fully immersed in a world of education. Designed to help increase engagement and knowledge retention amongst students of all ages, ClassVR is the next step in interactive learning.
Offering their contribution to improve education are Microsoft with their range of Windows 10 Pro laptops. Optimized for learning, each laptop offers a plethora of features designed to benefit the development of every student. Each device is extremely user-friendly making it perfect for students of all ages.
Offering a stand-out collaborative experience is Microsoft Teams, allowing users to work together no matter where they are. The platform allows team calling, meaning classes can be taught even outside of the classroom. Microsoft Teams isn’t just limited to calls either, users can also access, share and edit Microsoft office documents in real time.
For the schools which can’t afford the tech they need, Ebuyer schemes in place that will help. One such scheme is Winabaility, a program where parents can contribute towards new tech for schools so that both students and teachers can benefit. The program helps put the latest Windows 10 devices in schools which would otherwise be unable to afford the technology.
Ebuyer also offer advice on Microsoft’s Shape the Future program, which allows eligible schools to buy Windows 10 licenses at a reduced price. Supporting education transformation, a single license includes Office 365, Windows 10, Enterprise Mobility and security.
