Education Evolution: The Classroom Of The Future, Today

Education has evolved to the point that in some parts of the world, the copying of notes is no longer required or is done by someone or something else other than the students. Many schools today require each of their students to have digital devices such as personal computers, tablets, or laptops. Many gadgets have replaced books, paper, and pens.

More and more schools are now requiring their students to submit reports and other assignments online. Email accounts are being set up by teachers for this. Online folders such as Dropbox have become the depository of reports. And all of these have effective security measures of course.

In some cases, classes nowadays can be held in a virtual classroom. This is most useful in situations of extreme weather – provided there are no electrical outages. In line with this, websites are being developed for teachers to update lesson plans and schedules, to make sure that information on both the educators’ and the students’ ends will be current.

Many of the students’ activities such as special programs, academic and sports competitions, study sessions, club and organization events, field trips, and the like are mostly coordinated online. There are several calendars for students to refer to regarding all these special occasions, as well as their regular school activities.

Schools nowadays have their own IT department to keep all these networks features up and running.

Engaging Minds Through Interactive Audiovisual Multimedia

Since the 1980s and 1990s, learning tools using computer technology have been developed for use in learning, allowing young pupils and adult learners alike to explore knowledge at their own pace and in an engaging and inviting medium.

Today, many modern museums and other civic institutions have incorporated audiovisual multimedia systems to share important supplementary material and get visitors engaged in the learning experience. Likewise, many schools and colleges today have dedicated audiovisual systems, allowing students and teachers alike to create and share presentations throughout a lesson. Even companies have utilized e-learning systems through audiovisual media to improve employee skill development and training.

Interactivity is of particular interest in educational audiovisual multimedia systems. E-learning best practice leans toward higher, more immersive levels of interactivity, which have a significant impact on the effectiveness of e-learning materials and are critical elements of the design and execution of e-learning courses, in particular, multimedia ones.

To fully leverage the advantages of interactivity, new developments such as interactive whiteboard systems are widely being adopted by organizations of all kinds. These systems combine the simplicity of a whiteboard with the power of a computer, allowing instructors to develop and deliver dynamic and fully interactive lessons plans, take down notes, and save work.
