Advanced technologies promote an effective use of learning tools, holding all the subjects in classrooms equipped with aids, literature, didactic materials, technical equipment, and extracurricular pursuits. This system facilitates a rapid “penetration” in the subject, studied in the class; creating better opportunities for the use of visual aids, and conditions for the organization of interesting extracurricular subject work and extracurricular educational work with students. Here are some advantages of technology in students:
- A way to better memorizing.
The technical training plays a significant role in remembering the information, creating bright basic points to help capture the logical thread of knowledge and organizing necessary material.
- To attract and to retain.
The most pressing and complex problem in the educational interaction between a teacher and a pupil is the attracting and retaining of children’s attention throughout the lesson. It ‘s hard to force a kid to be interested in teaching lessons. However, according to the novelty, dynamic objects and image contrast – all the options, reproduced by means of technologies, it would be easier. Moreover, it promotes the involuntary memorizing the material.
- An easy practice.
The significant role of technical training is in the application of knowledge. There are special exercise equipment, new computer programs aimed at developing skills.
- A useful television.
An educational TV is a way of transmission of a learning visual and audio information via open and closed television systems on distance. It is a set of programs, created on subject of the curriculum and are designed for the use directly in the classroom and during extracurricular activities. The use of television in teaching of foreign languages is appropriate to enhance speech activity of students, creating three-dimensional situations, which can improve their foreign language communicational skills and students mastering the foreign language as main means of communication in the proposed circumstances. The unique TV features (immersive, documentary) give the impression that a program is personally addressed to the audience.
- The communicational relevance.
Using records for speech improvement helps your teacher to find an elusive for students’ speech mistakes, analyze and eliminate them. An accurate speech recording allows to correct and expressive the tone, tempo, to achieve the ability to apply breaks and to correct substantive errors.
- A contribution in self-education.
The use of methods and means of forming a self-control and a self-entry among students getting the knowledge and skills.
- To save some time.
The use of technology in the classroom saves time, teacher’s and students’ energy, by sealing educational information and accelerating the pace. Reducing the time spent on learning is by shifting functions that technique performs better than the teacher.
- A step into the future career.
Students gain knowledge of the computer for later use in a future profession, but they do it today. They illustrate the relationship between theory and practice.
- A higher productivity of the study.
Technical training aids improve the efficiency and productivity of educational process only if they are properly applied methodically. In other words, if that teacher imagines and understands the psychological basis of his application well.
- To make the senses work.
Multimedia allows you to use the maximum number of channels of perception through the transfer of information in multimedia form with the help of computers, thereby significantly improve the effectiveness of training. According to UNESCO – when a person listens, she remembers 15% of verbal information when watching – 25% of the visual information, sees and hears – 65% of the received information. Thus, the need for modern technologies, such as audiovisual may affect different senses, no doubt.
Nevertheless, many teachers do not use the visual and technical equipment. Some are simply afraid to use them or do not know how they work. Therefore, teachers decide not to mess with them. In these cases, the child studies worse, lose the interest in the subject, doesn’t develop personality traits. Those pupils were taught without the use of visual and technical facilities in secondary schools lag behind those who were deprived of their application. It turns out that every new technology for classrooms is necessary for learning because it helps to prepare children better for later schooling.
