A new day, a new technology

A new day, a new technology

Every new day to school, kids come geared up to study a new trick and go back and proudly present the details to their parents. Technology has been an area where the child has immense interest and fascination, seeing parents and older siblings use it in front of them for ages.

As a teacher, we can initiate children through technology to one of the most powerful tools used today in online learning and studying. The uses of flashcards are varied and very fascinating. It is a tool which can be used with ease by very young kids, and it can also be a fascinating tool to help them understand many subjects. Children have a very keen visual sense, and they tend to remember details in front of their eyes much more in comparison to what they heard.

Flashcards which are handmade do not have the special factor of being on a computer, and hence making it more difficult to for children to accept them as a new means of learning. When we use the same kind of flashcards but on the computer, they are more keen on seeing it and using the flashcard in their learning. Also a computer generated flash card can be used with a wide variety of media props which will invariably leave a deeper impact on the child’s memory.

Children can use these flashcards as a means of making notes and learning new particulars every day, and then, these can be used during exams as pre aligned notes made by the student themselves, and also saving time during exam preparation. These exams can also be important competitive exams which children participate in at state and country wide levels. These exams need consistent learning, and new techniques to be implemented in learning, so as to save time, and also retain the maximum regarding a variety of topics.

One question which has featured in many blogs and also at many teacher conferences is, ‘How important is for kids to have home work?’ I believe that homework can be attributed to fun, and then alone will it be of any use. Many parents claim that getting children to finish up their homework and study their daily lessons is the biggest issue which they face. Using online tools like flashcards help them to view homework in a more exciting manner as compared to the typical sitting at a table with books open in front of them.

One of my students parents, organize study groups where they sit and work towards homework and learning with a few friends and their respective parents. This helps the usage of group study mechanisms and students to also get used to these methods which will help them in the longer run in team work and play. This was started very early in school days and now these kids though older, still have a very strong study group method which they follow and also enables them to get through work quicker and the work assigned also seems less of a drag.
