Speed is an Invaluable Commodity in Classrooms and Lecture Halls: Students' Need for Readiness and Efficiency

To convey knowledge to the students we currently teach, over preparation is still better than too little. is one way to appear totally prepared and knowledgeable about the world outside of classrooms and lecture halls. Because most students engage social media at hyper-speed, and this disposition is ingrained and forecasts how they will 'work' in the future, facilitators need to prove that their desktops are organized to meet that relatively new inclination and perception.

iDesk allows facilitators to take advantage of teachable moments (Havighurst, 1952) or switch media quickly to prevent digression or loss of direction toward a thematic objective. Furthermore, allowing students to see their Symbaloo homepage (for instance) prepared for a lesson unit or entire course with tiles that are subject specific and linked to pertinent lesson materials, theories, and videos (as on iDesk) models how they too can harness the semiotic power of their multimodality (Hull & Nelson, 2005) worlds. Also, don't be too quick to judge this attitude unfriendly to speakers of other languages because visual online preparedness allows instructors to return to subject matter seamlessly if informal assessment proves the need.

What are the current possibilities that technology can provide in education? Blended Learning. This is clearly a different teaching approach when compared with the traditional method of teaching, it accommodates for our students who are living in a complex world that is advancing in technology very fast. This video explains what Blended Learning is and how it can be implemented in schools.

Part 2 discuses the benefits of using blended learning such as engagement, participation, save and gain time, student centred learning, accomodating new learning styles and more! This is definitely worth watching too!
