As students of the previous generation, we were always on someone else’s schedule. The first eight hours of the day were spent in school, after which we were sent to our various tuition and training classes. Then we had to do our homework and get ready for the next day at school. It left us very little time to fend for ourselves.
It can be assumed with some degree of certainty that this method is very inefficient and that as adults, if we have trouble managing our time, it is because someone else or another institution in the process. had full control. However, for the generation currently in school, things are quite different.
To begin with, the curriculum and method used in teaching and learning is very different from what it used to be; Most of the processes in education have been refined with the introduction of technology into the classroom. The initiative that technology drives wherever it is introduced saves time and money and that is exactly what it does in education, especially for students.
Gone are the days when students had to register for a million coaching courses or courses. There are a dozen online learning apps and resources that help students learn effectively. There are apps on the market with AI frameworks that can accurately assess student delays and help them overcome them through custom recommendation engines. In many cases, students who regularly learn with digital resources are made aware of these lags even before their teachers.
This means that they also have the opportunity to remedy these delays themselves outside of the classroom. They no longer have to wait for an exam to figure out where their focus needs to be adjusted. In this way, their exam preparation increases and students also find learning to be a more rewarding experience, as the escalation of delays and its successive repairs occur quite quickly. It won’t be a stretch to say that this all happens in a matter of minutes.
Additionally, there are many tools available in the education industry specifically designed to enable classroom efficiency for teachers and students. Most of the manual consuming administrative tasks have found digital alternatives to such an extent that schools no longer need to operate on an 8 hour schedule. This frees up time not only for the students but also for the teachers.
Additionally, technology has advanced so much that teachers are also using it in the classroom for more interactive teaching experiences. There are classroom response systems, apps, and other visual tools that can explain concepts creatively for students of all skill levels to learn and understand. It also reduces the need for additional tuition fees outside of the classroom.
So to speak, technology in classrooms has paved the way for students to manage much of their learning on their own. As students manage their learning outcomes on their own and fill in gaps more effectively, independence becomes a by-product of the whole process and they also learn skills such as time management and strategic planning.
Having said that, having access to these resources is not enough; these tools should be implemented to the best of their ability, and no one should rely solely on technology to do their heavy lifting for them. A lot of learning also lays a solid foundation and it also requires a lot of manual effort on the part of the students. Technology cannot replace the mental work and unwavering determination that are required to be successful academically.
But, make the best use of these resources and it can be said with certainty that this is the real recipe for success. The idea is to get students to improve their learning outcomes in one way or another. If this involves technology, it promotes efficiency and effectiveness, two very favorable by-products of the method.
