Technology in the classroom has huge benefits
Share this article:
Future Nation Schools looked at education trends and noticed that South African pupils, along with the rest of the world, need to prepare for the demands that come with the fourth industrial revolution.
Despite the struggles that South Africa faces with access to internet and resources, the education system can no longer ignore the demands of a world using advanced technologies, which include artificial intelligence, robotics and driverless cars.
The tried and tested chalk and board method is no longer logical as learners are becoming more collaborative in their learning methods. It’s clear that using technology in the classroom has its benefits.
Technology in the classroom can be seen as a step in a positive direction because it is seen to motivate students to study by making it more fun and interactive. It also prepares students for a future. The youth of today are very pro technology and by using technology in the classroom, it allows students to better connect to their study material.
Future Nation plays a pioneering role at the primary school level to introduce and use technology to aid and strengthen learning. Technology is used as a tool for playing, learning and experimentation in junior primary school. It is then expanded to research, analysis and communication in senior primary school.
People are already using a lot of technology in everyday life, and for that reason Future Nation Schools has also found it relevant to include in their day-to-day schooling.
