How Does Digitised Learning in BHS High School Bring Multiple Positive Changes?by BHS Mukundapur Team Best CBSE School in Kolkata
Digitised learning is a hype word nowadays. The media is hyperbolic about the benefits of digitised learning without explaining them in details. In this article, we’re going to explain the practical benefits of digitised learning as it has been followed by some reputed schools in Kolkata like BHS high school.
The school encourages the correct use of the internet. Hence, it has made WiFi available on the premises. There are computer labs with ample numbers of systems for every student. The classroom population is kept to a certain limit. The aim is to put attention to the requirements of individual students.
Students are allowed to access the internet. Computer systems are connected via LAN. From locating a place on the school premises to accessing the net via a device, WiFi zones make matters easier.
Smartboards are able successors of blackboards/ whiteboards. We’ll explain it with the aid of two real life scenarios.
Case 1: Students have attended an important class. At the end of the lecture, some students wished to revisit it to clear some doubtful points. All they can do is to request some classmate to show his/her class notes (if they’ve noted them down).
Case 2: Let’s now reverse the above-mentioned scenario. A teacher might want students to go through lectures he/she delivered in the last class and ask queries to clarify their doubts (A good teacher can never move to the next lesson before being confident that every student has grasped the last lesson, thoroughly.) However, in the absence of any means to do this in a traditional classroom, except taking word-by-word notes of the lecture, teachers are forced to move to the next chapters.
Smartboards have replaced blackboards/whiteboards for good. The classrooms at Birla High School are smart classrooms with projectors and computer systems. Smartboards are interactive platforms with touchscreens. The best thing is that smartboards can solve two of the above-mentioned problems.
Smartboards record classroom lectures. Students can request teachers to play a certain clip to clarify particular doubts. Teachers can play the entire recording during extra classes if a good number of students request them. Based on what has been taught, students can prepare lists of queries and give it to teachers. This kind of learning habit bears better results than learning by rote.
Audio-visual (AV) auditoriums are playing significant roles to bring the long-awaited change in pedagogic methods. For example, BHS is using AV auditoriums to introduce experiential learning to the mainstream. Unlike didactic and rote learning, experiential learning enables students to learn hands-on.
Extracurricular activities are the best tools for imparting experiential learning. BHS organises multiple extracurricular activities in AV auditoriums.
In addition, seminars and workshops are held in auditoriums. Presentations and educational AV clips leave better impressions in the minds of students than text-based learning. The retency rate is better.
To give the benefits of digitised learning to their children from an early age, many parents fill the forms of admission in Birla high school nursery classes. Given so many benefits of digitised learning, parents should opt for schools that utilise technology to deliver better learning experience.
