How an Indian Teacher is Transforming High School Practices Using Technology

How an Indian Teacher is Transforming High School Practices Using Technology | Character and character tools | Scoop.it

Technology has helped me tremendously in converting my class from ‘Teacher Driven’ to ‘Student Driven’. Technology tools also provide me real time data about students learning – so I can adjust my teaching accordingly. Moreover, because of technology, I can encourage students to pursue their other areas of interest as well. For example, if a child has to attend any national level camp or any sports event, now can access lessons from my E-classroom or connect with class through video conference .

“We hope by highlighting the views and values of today’s students, especially those students who are living a digital learning experience, this year’s report stimulates new discussions around the effective use of digital tools, resources and content to support student learning,” said Julie Evans CEO of Project Tomorrow.
