Most educators know first-hand the negative effects of boredom in the classroom. You’re faced with a room full of glazed eyes, and the lesson is quickly lost. In fact, boredom can strike any type of student, from K12 to vocational and even university. You may ask yourself, “What causes student boredom?” Well, the answer is lack of engagement. But luckily there’s a cure—education technology. Here’s what you need to know:
Be engaging — Do you want your students to fully take in your lesson? Then be engaging! Interactive and fun methods simply result in better learning outcomes than those that are flat and dull. With the right ed-tech, you can incorporate effective and engaging digital content into each lesson.
Be individualized— When it comes to learning, no two students are exactly alike. Generally, some students fall behind in a lesson, while others become under-stimulated. Both of these paths often result in boredom. But with ed-tech, your class can benefit from differentiated learning. Each student can be in the same lesson, but at his or her own pace and level. When the student’s lesson is individualized, it allows for heightened engagement with the learning materials.
Be in their language—The world communicates differently than it did just a few short years ago. Now, the language is that of technology. From Facebook, iPhones and Google, to hashtags, likes and shares. With digital classroom technology, these modern communication and collaboration features can be incorporated into every lesson. This allows for richer interaction and greater comprehension.
