Basically there is no alternative to hard work. Proper time management and proper practice help an individual to feel the beauty of being a successful person. He insisted that there is no need to study so many hours for scoring the highest marks only we need to study with full focus and concentration. We can score high marks with consistent efforts. Self study is the best method of learning. It is complete one to one interaction with the help of textbook. Self study helps us to develop an insight for the self and syllabus. Dedicating his success to his parents’ sacrifices, Pranav said that his mother helped him form his base and his father motivated him. The topper further said, “If you focus well, your study hours won’t really matter. Stay focused and calm. Have faith in your teachers and their guidance, and always ensure that your knowledge is conceptually sound.”

Kalash Gupta, a student of Amity International School, Saket, on Sunday secured the third rank in the IIT-JEE Advanced results. Gupta, who scored 97.6 per cent in his Class 12 exams, secured 325 out of 360 marks in the IIT JEE Advanced exam, the results of which were declared on Sunday. “Instead of slogging in the last few days, I made sure to study a few hours every day. During this time, I also made sure that I keep some time for my hobbies which helped me de-stress,” Gupta said (Indian Express)

Develop a habit for reading consistently for whole year; no matter even if only one hour in a day. I never find a miraculous person in my life who has achieved great result in an academic field by working hard at 11th hours of examination. Working very hard before an examination is completely destroying one’s self because magic happens with once and at once in millions of people, otherwise a person who studies consistently for whole academic year; s/he only creates wonder in life. A wise student studies rationally and practice well before an examination for a better result

Learning part and portion of a syllabus is incomplete way for an examination preparation. Syllabus is designed to cover in a certain period. Proper planning and execution of planning with the help of good study materials can help students to achieve good score. Good students study complete prescribed syllabus. They try to develop better understanding of complete syllabus. 

Nature wise, each student cares his/her future and wants to do well in studies, but conversion of thinking into action on real ground makes all the differences****** There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning. (Jiddu Krishnamurti) So what is next?

Use of Technology- Benefits of Using Appropriate Teaching Materials in the Classroom

Technology is necessity of 21st century people. Our life is incomplete without technology. Technology helps us to grow physically, mentally and socially. Technology helps us to connect with each other. We are virtually attached with each other. We sense a real emotional bonding with each other. Widely availability of Desktop and Laptop in last decades ensured that technology is for everyone. Common people were excited to learn “how to operate it and how to use it”. Gradual development of Smart phone makes the task easy. Now people use Smartphone smartly. Of course, it is difficult to keep ourselves away from Smart phone even for short time. We feel a sense of incompleteness without Smartphone. Child starts feeling the importance of technology in life.

Integration of technology in the classroom for teaching learning process is essential and effective. Technology becomes integral part of education system. Wise teacher uses technology to ensure proper learning in the classroom. Teacher feels comfortable with technology. Student finds technology very useful for developing better understanding of different subject. Technological tools ensure effective teaching learning in the classroom.

Search engines give best result in fractions of second. Teachers as well as students face great difficulty in choosing appropriate content for the concerned topic. What can be the best ideas for selecting appropriate content for rational learning? What should be crucial factors for choosing right content? How can someone ensure the best learning outcome with the help of technology in the classroom?

People from all over world are uploading numerous teaching learning materials in various form i.e. Pdf, Word doc, images, videos and power point presentation through various platforms i.e. Slide share, YouTube etc. Without making familiar with the teaching materials before discussing/displaying and distributing can be the biggest chaos in the classroom.  We should be active, alert and sensible when we decide the content for teaching and learning process.

Students’ learning need

Learners are at the center in our teaching learning process.  A wise teacher considers students’ learning need before using technology in the classroom. If we decided to use technology in the classroom, we should consider “What is our students’ need? When we consider our students need, we consider on various factors which really hamper the students’ learning in the classroom.  Use of appropriate teaching online/offline/printed/softcopy etc increases students’ engagement and motivation; moreover it speed up learning experience in the classroom.

 Difficulty level of content/topic/text’s concept

Learning is a complex phenomenon. Technology supports our educational systems to enhance students’ learning experience through various technological tools. A well designed curriculum and syllabus cater the need of a nation. A well developed syllabus caters individual need in correspondence with culture. A wise teacher decides the difficulty level of content/topic/ text concept. S/he finds out materials through various available sources which fulfils the current need of students.

Students’ previous knowledge of content/topic/text

What is use of using technology in the classroom if we fail to evaluate our students’ previous knowledge of current teaching topic? Considering previous knowledge of our students help a teacher to decide appropriate teaching materials from where students can co-relate their existing knowledge with current teaching topic, from where they can proceed to the next level of learning.

Appropriate to students’ understanding level

A classroom consists of different types of learners’ i.e. slow learner, gifted learner and average learners. Their understanding level differs for various reasons. When we select supporting resource materials for the learners in the classroom, our resource materials should be able to fulfil mix groups of learners. A wise teacher considers his students’ level of understanding before using any technological tools and web materials in a classroom. Our main purpose to use technology in the classroom fulfill only when we cater the understanding level of each and everyone i.e. an English language teacher does intensive research before using appropriate teaching resource before entering in the classroom.

Appropriate to local learning environment (Social/Economical/National)

Every state and nation has its own cultures. A video on learning grammatical items on You Tube may be best suitable to America, Britain but may not be appropriate to China. Wise teacher uses appropriate resource materials for in a technology enabled classroom to maximize students’ learning experiences. A story from America may not be suitable to Indian students due to various reasons i.e. Name, surroundings, cultural background and language competency. A wise teacher customizes resources materials in a technology enabled classroom.

Appropriate language according to students’ level

Language is essential vehicle to learn new things. Age appropriate, understanding level appropriate and cultural appropriate language can enhance learning experiences in the classroom. What is use of using a Received Pronunciation (RP) and International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) enabled video in an Indian government school located in a remote area? Students uses mother tongue in the classroom. What is use of using printed materials consist of high standard words and sentences in a technological enable classroom? Our main objective to use technology in the classroom is to enhance students’ learning. Wise teacher assesses the appropriateness of resource materials language before using in the classroom.

Decide the content and practice well presenting before student

Choosing appropriate content and practice well before entering in the classroom establishes a teacher as fine person. Students take it positively. It helps teacher to manage the classroom systematically. What to do before entering in the classroom for using technology for maximizing learning and developing depth understanding of a particular teaching topic? Wise teacher selects appropriate different teaching resources for the classroom. S/he studies in depth. Teacher watches video in advance if s/he shows a video from You Tube and any other downloaded video. S/he prepares her classroom strategies i.e. how to use materials, when she will engage students, when she will ask questions, when she will conduct the assessment test etc to avoid confusing moment in the classroom. It is observed several times that a teacher has planned to show a power point presentation in the classroom but due to some technical reasons, he could not show it to the students, so it is better to keep materials in printed form if it is possible.

  • Read the text in depth
  • Watch the video in advance
  • Make your strategies to use material
  • Keep material in printed form if possible

Right preparation and proper planning maximize learning in the classroom. Teacher develops a better understanding for difficult topics with the help of technology in the classroom. Students always enjoy a wise subject teacher class.  So what ! Are you a wise teacher? Aren’t ——————–

Benefits of Using Technology in the Classroom

Benefits of Using Technology in the Classroom

Use of technology is integral part of our life. Living in an era of globalization, we need to understand the changing trend across the world. Technology has become fundamental need for human society. In fact, technology is the best companion of today’s world. We open our eyes by searching mobile somewhere on the bed. No one thinks it as a bad habit. The more we stress on innovative learning, the more we become a global contender. There was time when textbook, teacher and education institutions were main source of learning. Nowadays, we quench the thirst of knowledge with technological support. Evolvement of technology has changed the beliefs and values of teachers, administrators, parents and other educational stakeholders.

Why we should integrate technology in the classroom?

Students’ engagement is keys to success. The interactive effects of sound, animation, narration and additional definitions that make up electronic texts appeal to today’s learners, motivating them to concentrate better and to deliver higher achievement.

Need of time for present and future

We live in a virtual world. Love of technology changes life styles of each and every person. We arise early in the morning with technology. We walk carrying most sophisticated gadget in our pocket. We sleep with technology. A bedroom is full of electronic gadgets. We enjoy pip-beep sound in our sound sleeping. This is intense integration of technology in our life.

Need of 21st century technological savvy world citizen

We handle 21st century Android apps enabled generation. Kids love to spend more time on Electronic gadgets. They are least motivated to talk with their peers, parent and elder members of family at the same time parents also spends much time on Electronic Gadgets. Smart and sophisticated technology has filled the gap between developed and developing country. Literate and illiterate world citizens know the importance of technology. Knowledge is no more sole property of educated world. Our school supportive staffs are not so well educated but they always clear their doubt doing Google. They use Whatsapp comfortably. Our school supportive staffs handle own account on several social sites. This is power and explosion of technology in our life.

Our kids are very smart, so much active and so much interested in using technology at home and at school. I met Mr. Sheetal Yadav at my office to discuss the performance of his son Mr. Saurbh Yadav. He is a businessman and his wife is a primary school teacher in a government school. Mr. Sheetal Yadav himself completed his training (Basic Training Certificate) which is prescribed for primary teacher; however he has his own business. Mr. Saurbh Yadav is not very active boy in 8th class, suffering from allergic problem, now and then gets cough and cold due to this, he frequently absents from class. Mr. Sheetal Yadav shared with me the mastery of Saurabh in using technology at home. Sir, ‘Saurabh is very intelligent in using technology. He sends all order through email. He keeps me updating in latest products of our business company.

This is power of technology in 21st century. Children may be or may not be performing well in terms of learning of prescribed syllabus, performing well in the class and getting good score in examination oriented education system but undoubtedly they are skilled and expert enough to use technology in their day to day life. So, they demand learning through technology in the classroom. Sometimes, they help their teacher to operate different gadgets properly; sometimes they sort our minor technical difficulties (hardware and software) by their own learning experiences. It may or may not be exaggerate to say that people can survive in different difficult circumstances but may not be survived without technology or may not feel at ease without technology. Nowadays, technology is more important than to get fresh air for living a healthy life because unavailability of fresh air has gradual effect on our health but without using technology has immediate effect in our life.

Prepare active, engaged and empowered students

Integration of technology ensures effective teaching learning process in the classroom. It makes easy for students to develop proper understanding for conceptual learning. Learners become active in a technological enabled classroom. Integration of technology caters the need of different types of learners i.e. auditory, visual, kinaesthetic etc. It consists of picture, video, textual material etc. Students learn well when they see a Globe Map on the Computer Screen because they can customize it according to different need and situations. It clears different complex learning topics very easily. Students enjoy their Biology teacher class, when they watch a 3D movie on ‘Digestive System’. Students respond well when they watch a short act based on their textbook story. Technology prepares students to become active participant in learning process, it keeps them engaged during the class and empowered their learning when a teacher integrates technology rationally in the class.

Prepare student to understand teaching topic

Integration of technology in the classroom prepares students to be active participant in learning process. It is interesting and informative stimulating source in pedagogical perspective. Teacher integrates technology in classroom teaching for ensuring effective teaching.

Ensure effective and quality teaching

Technology helps us to ensure effective and quality teaching in the classroom. What is sole purpose of a classroom? No doubt at all, the answer is “students’ learning”. Technology makes students an active agent of learning. It helps educator to integrate factual knowledge with virtual knowledge. It is observed that technology helps students to retain learning for a long time.

Ensure active participation of students

Students become active participant of learning. They participate in classroom discussion. They feel active to work in a group. Since, students can explore the virtual world by themselves; they feel happy. It gives them a sense of satisfaction for achieving something in learning task. Students do not feel as passive learners. This creates a learning friendly environment in the classroom.

Maximize learning in the classroom

Use of technology in the classroom caters the need of different learners learning styles. It provides solution for one and all at a single platform. We know that learners learn well when educator provides learning platform for them and ensure students active participation in learning process. Use of technology in the classroom promotes two ways learning.

Help to develop understanding level of complex and difficult topics

The best way to ensure effective learning in the classroom is to integrate technology in the classroom. Teacher fosters learning in the classroom. Efficient teacher is skilled enough to ensure learning in the classroom; however it is observed that students could not learn well and respond well in complex and difficult topic. Usually students used to feel least interesting during a regular teaching –learning phenomena, but wise teacher makes best use of technology to clear students’ doubt. Mathematics teacher integrates technology in his lesson plan to teach “Trigonometry” unit because sometimes students become confuse with angles.

Integrate theoretical learning with practical learning

Earlier, teaching –learning process was heavily dependent on teacher, textbook and best available notes. If a teacher could not clarify a particular topic then either students use to leave that topic or students used to memorize that topic in the examination. Nowadays our learners are centre point in our teaching-learning circle. Teacher integrates technology in the classroom for blending theoretical learning with practical learning. Earlier, if a teacher teaches his student,” how to recite a poem”, s/he used to do it himself/herself but nowadays an English Language Teacher can show 5 five different videos of different age group learners,  belong to five different countries. Technology made it easy, where theoretical knowledge can be amalgamated with practical knowledge in any sphere of learning.

Promote High Order Thinking Skills

When a teacher integrates theoretical knowledge with practical knowledge, then effective learning happens in the classroom. Teacher incorporates higher order thinking skills. He develops HOTS with using technology in the classroom. It can be in terms of using practice material from simple to complex, using different level of worksheets, using videos for leading conceptual discussion, by giving opportunity to explore related to teaching topics and by asking students to  prepare a short project on it. Teacher’s prime concern is to develop critical thinking skill among students through use of various available technology and resources in the classroom.

Fulfills the need of different types of learners

We agree with unique learning quality of each and every learner. One way of teaching cannot cater the need of all the learners in a classroom. Each and every learner have different perspective to learn something, different learning styles to learn something and adopt different ways and means to learn something for short and long time memory retention. Integrating technology in the classroom solves different learners need under one big umbrella. A wise teacher uses different tools and techniques for maximizing learning in the classroom. It completely depends on teacher’s expertise and skill to use technology in the classroom i.e. (why to use, how to use and what to use)

Increase concentration level of students in the lesson

Integration of technology provides ample opportunity for learning to feel at ease in the classroom for learning. It can be used for ice-breaking and to discuss complex topics. Satisfactory learning outcome depends on the concentration level of learner. With the help of picture, podcast, audio, video, and numerous means of technology help learners to be energetic and focused on the learning topic because these tools and techniques create an interest in teaching topic.

Promote innovative teaching skills in the classroom

Integration of technology promotes innovative teaching technique which helps students to develop different learning skills at different level. How a teacher does integrate technology in his lesson plan for teaching a topic? What is his objective to integrate technology in his lesson planning? If a teacher is precise in his objective, he develops different ideas of teaching to cater the need of learners. A wise educator plans different learner centered activities and tasks to promote learners’ involvement to inculcate innovative learning outcome i.e. to compare economical statues between two states in last decade can be represented using Microsoft excel, Power Point Presentation, Video etc which can appeal the viewers. Student engrossed himself in activities. It promotes natural learning; moreover s/he has opportunity to customize his/her learning by adopting different tools.

Maximize students’ self esteem

Integration of technology maximizes learning in the class since each student of class gets benefited from use of technology. Student’ self esteem increases in proportionate to level of his learning. With the help of technology teacher provides learning opportunity of learner. Since, each learner knows how to use technology; students enjoy it in the class. A wise teacher asks supportive question to his student since student has watched movie or listened podcast or watched photograph therefore they guess some of the factual answer very easily. They reply to their teacher. It boosts up confidence of each and every learner in the class.

Provide ample opportunity to access fathomless materials

Technology provides more than adequate learning opportunities for 21st century learners. Learners’ cantered approach established with the help of technology. Learners prepare themselves at home; they explore different resources on a particular topic. They come to class filled with sufficient knowledge of  topic. When we have a chat with our seniors of 1990s, they share their teacher’s way of teaching. Sometimes, even an experienced teacher also had used to distribute 10 years old notes to his/her students. Nowadays, smart kids can tell you the name of website from where you have taken notes. It is also observed that teacher caught in an embarrassing situation before the students, if he hides the link of resources.

Technology helps student to become owner of his own learning. A wise teacher helps his students to inquire, evaluate and explore the existing learning sources because world of Internet provides fathomless materials with .02 second of search. It is fundamental duty of wise educator to lead his students to the right destination so that they can focus on authentic resources widely available on World Wide Web. Credit goes to different search engines, and especially Google to provide a big platform for learners. Learning is a fun. Of course, we all are learners in the world of World Wide Web. 

Wise educator is a keen learner. In fact learning is a lifelong process. There is no full stop in learning. Educator keeps every learning door open in the process of continuous learning. Wise educator explores new ways, new techniques, new methods, new innovation, new skills and new resources to keep him/her up to date. Learning technological skills is demand for 21st century skill based education. Digital Literacy Skill is integral part of pedagogical perspective. Technology is our one of the best friend. Wise educator integrates digital skills to open a new horizon of learning.
