Ramya is from PSY Matriculation School following Traditional Methods of Teaching in which she faces lots of challenges while taking classes. She had difficulties in the process of teaching at the time of delivering lectures to more numbers of students, especially students sitting in the last. She had to raise her voice to make her audible in the end. Before the end of the class, she used to start feeling exhausted.
Raising her voice started draining her out of energy and feeling pain in her throat. She felt inconvenient in holding the microphone, as she had to hold microphone in one hand and textbook in another hand. There was a challenge in bringing clarity in the content delivery. Also, there was probabilities of tripping over microphone cord while holding microphone cord and lecture material simultaneously.
Tired with the difficulties faced in the classroom, she met her friend Geeta from XYZ Matriculation school to overcome this challenge. Ramya has seen Geeta enjoying her teaching hours without any strain and complaining. Geeta’s solution made Ramya extremely happy and relieved.
The next day the classes were as usual in PSY Matriculation School but the students are listening intensely to their teacher Miss Ramya. The teacher incidentally talks in normal volume instead of shouting at the students. That is because her classroom has been enabled a teacher friendly wireless classroom audio system and she is speaking into a neck wearable microphone, which she wears it over her neck when she starts her classes.
Ramu sitting on the last bench of the class never used to concentrate in the teacher's classes as her voice was not so audible earlier. Now he is happy and can understand each pronunciation distinctly.
Earlier, technology in education was an arguable subject in the society. Everyone had his or oher own views on modernizing education and to make best use of it. There were a huge number of pros and cons for education technology. But, slowly as technology was embraced by the educational industry, it helped in realizing the importance of technology in education. Its positives outweighed the negatives and now, with technology, education has taken a whole new meaning that it has left with no doubt that our educational system has been transformed owing to the ever-advancing technology.
The effects of technology in the classroom teaching are deep and much related to both the teacher and the students. The traditional classrooms were lecture driven. But with technology involved in education, the students have become more active in their learning.
In the field of education, technology serve as a powerful tool to help educational institutes to meet the needs of ever-more-diverse student populations. The idea is that digital devices and learning platforms offer a once-unimaginable array of options.
Electronic teaching has become an irresistible trend. Adopting multimedia devices in teaching not only facilitates teachers to interact better with students but also improves teacher-student relationship and intrigues students interest in study. So, this is a great helper for teachers. Technology and education are a great combination if used together with a right reason and vision.
