Visualization has always been a better way to understand and learn things. When we’re kids, our parents made us learn things by making us visualize those things. Keeping this in mind, the education sector has now started implementing visual learning in the form of ‘Smart Learning’ in schools, colleges and institutions.
Smart Learning is the use of visual aids like videos to deliver educational content to increase children’s interest and retain it for longer periods.
Below are the major benefits of incorporating Smart Learning in education:
1. Highly Effective: The visual learning using smart technologies serves the audience better by using elements like graphs, images, charts, presentations, etc., that are not easily conveyed by the classroom notes or text. The students thus learn effectively and therefore are capable of retaining more information.
2. Motivates Students: Smart Learning builds a student’s interest in a certain subject. The visualizations take students to the world of imagination which develop their interest as well as motivate them to learn more.
3. Simplify Teaching: Smart learning uses smart boards that are capable of doing many things. It just needs the creation of transparent worksheet and simply placing it under the camera to be seen on the smart board. Computer monitors can also be displayed on smart boards and can be written over using a highlighter tool or simply with your hand as mouse to control the computer screen without having to return to your computer. You can also use wall mounts by placing smart boards over them to facilitate smart learning while giving presentations, videos, etc. as they are movable and easily approachable for the students.
4. Cost Benefits: Smart learning can teach many people effectively without the need of buying expensive implements and other study related materials. It is a one-time expense, but can possibly serve for long, reasonably.
5. Saving Documents: The notes written by the instructor or the teacher can be saved to be used later. This is beneficial for students who may have missed any class. Also, notes can be made accessible online and used for review purposes.
So, are you a Smart learner??
