In this silicon era as we approach a new year, the world is increasingly going digital. For every human need and desire like social interaction, services booking, shopping there is a digital platform designed to cater to. The next obvious step was education. And it is happening. It isn’t long before digital aid will become an integral part of the schooling experience.
Let us tell you how you can use this major revolution to get a head start and help your child.
When in Rome, do as the Romans do
If you are a parent of the 21st century, your child is most likely a tech-addict. You know the agony of trying to pull your child away from an intense game of subway surf to the boring realm of crawling words. But what if you could make their love of electronics the strongest weapon in your arsenal. Use the wide variety of educational apps and games to hook your child to an engaging learning experience.
To choose time is to save time
Let your child carry his school everywhere he goes; it doesn’t weigh much after all. Thanks to gamified learning, all you need is a smartphone and your child can be in school whenever he wants. Use previously under-utilised time in engaging your child in quick learning session and watch them not realising how the time flies by in learning process. Be it a long distance commute, a visit to the dentist that is taking time or a delayed flight – all that can be put to use. Now learning schedule can be chosen to suit your convenience. Really, it is a win-win for everyone!
The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn
Cultivate a deep rooted interest for a subject through an interactive interface with captivating animation. It is so much more fun for children to watch in action the manifestation of concepts of physics than to be just be left imagining what the practical picture would be like. Practical exposure often nurtures an interest and passion for a topic that theoretical knowledge cannot inspire. What better and more convenient way to gift your child with an enriching experience than to use the gift of animation. Use the gamified learning experience to open new doors of learning. These interesting set of games for conceptual clarity in maths & science are targeted at students of grade 7, grade 8, grade 9 & grade 10.
Feedback is the breakfast of champions
The greatest improvement happens through a continuous feedback to eliminate weak points. Rejoice with the feature of app-learning that provides you a continuous feedback on the performance of your child. Appreciate that apps have the capability of providing the kind of personalised and detailed feedback that a teacher in-charge of a class of 40 will not be able to provide. Learning with friends in games are added incentive for students. Olympiad quiz games can help students of grade 1 to 10 to prepare for various exams & compete with students across the globe.
In the book Reality Is Broken, Jane McGonigal observes that “players begin each game by tackling the obstacle of not knowing what to do and not knowing how to play.” In other words, players are encouraged to learn as they go. This is the heart of student-centered learning.
