Let’s begin with a riddle. We are very dependent on it. Our day is incomplete without it. Can you guess what it is?
During the peak Covid-19 period, while we were locked at home, technology played a very important role in everyone’s life. Not only did it help with ordering daily groceries, online shopping, and connecting with the world through social networking sites, but it also played a very important role in a learner’s life.
The Teaching-learning process continued through different platforms such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Classrooms, etc. During that time we realized that technology can be a powerful tool for transforming learning in the classroom daily wherein the teachers use different sites for teaching-learning materials, playing online educational games, uploading daily classroom work/homework in different portals, and so on. The most important role of technology in education is to make learning more accessible, exciting, and enjoyable.
Technology can help amplify teachers’ voices, enhance students’ engagement and accelerate learning. Technology can also help teachers manage their classrooms more effectively and create a more organized learning environment. Technology can help teachers personalize learning and accommodate the needs of all students, including those with special needs. For instance, many online educational tools allow teachers to adjust the pace, complexity, and medium of instruction based on individual student needs. Technology can also help teachers to save time on administrative tasks and more efficiently manage their classrooms. For example, the best schools in Gurgaon use online grade books to track and report student progress, as well as utilize online collaboration tools to facilitate group projects. Finally, technology can also help teachers to create an engaging and interactive learning environment. For instance, teachers can use educational games, simulations, and virtual labs to help students understand concepts more deeply and to provide a more immersive learning experience.
Top Gurgaon schools integrate the teaching-learning processes with technology and provide a more engaged learning environment, prepare students for the future, connect better with students, boost collaboration, support learning, gamify learning, enable virtual field trips, create student websites, and so on. Through experiential learning, the 21st-century skills that are valuable for children’s future success get developed.
As per the new NEP 2020 (New Education Policy) technology has an important role in learners learning through different platforms. Thus, every top-ranked school in Gurgaon has to integrate technology as an important tool for learning.
