eReflect announces the 5 top educational trends that will allow teachers and parents to make the most out of modern technologies. To promote learning and knowledge, the methodologies and approaches to learning need to be optimized, according to the latest tech-driven trends.
The Ultimate Typing™ editor reveals the five educational trends that tap into technology’s many abilities, including blended learning, the Professional Learning Network, collaborative learning, and tech-powered learning. Each trend is discussed at length in the latest Ultimate Typing™ blog post. The limitations as well as the potential of each trend are illustrated, and the reader is given a clear picture as to how each trend can be incorporated in existing classroom settings and at home.
The tech-powered educational trend, for instance, takes advantages of social media, instant communication technologies, and self-improvement software in an effort to offer students a learning boost that’s based on collaboration, interaction, and shared responsibilities. Self-improvement software, like Ultimate Typing™ for example, can be effectively used in IT classes because touch typing is an essential skill that helps students fully exploit computer technology’s potential. Without good typing skills, students cannot be time-effective when typing their projects, talking on social media, or collaborating through personal learning networks. A typing master, on the other hand, can make full use of technologies and devices to optimize their learning.
Performance-based learning is another trend eReflect thoroughly discusses in the blog post, mentioning how students can master a new skill or learn a piece of knowledge once they are critically putting it into action. Empirical learning rests on the premise that only when the learner is applying their theoretical knowledge will they fully master it.
eReflect encourages parents and educators alike not to be suspicious of new technologies, but to evaluate and incorporate them effectively in the educational process. Technology is not a stand-alone answer, but should be regarded as a multifaceted tool with much to give to knowledge and education. The advantages and possibilities of tech-based education can drive learning forward when used appropriately and with proper guidance.
