Whenever we see school children these days, they’re constantly scrolling on their phone screen, iPad, or laptop in front of them. In this generation, our kids have grown up to become totally immersed into the digitization of the world around.
They’ve become completely versatile and rapid. In a text, they can organize a party and in a video chat they can complete a group assignment.
ICT technology allows us all to be more interconnected with the world at the touch of our fingertips, so why shouldn’t we use this to our advantage when it comes to education?
It is universally acknowledged that our kids today are tomorrows future, so here are 4 major reasons why allowing E-Learning on the pattern of micro-learning to become a solid part of the child’s education will benefit them immensely.
It’s already a big part of their life
Pretty much everyone is online now, and social media breaks boundaries of socialising with others. So, who’s at the forefront of this? Kids, children, schoolers
There’s a countless number of social media platforms that young people use to instantly share and connect with others in a way that we have never been able to do before. Youtube, one of the biggest social media platforms, is used in classrooms for educational videos that are available on any topic whatsoever.
Kids have grown up with this, and it forms a big part of their life. So why not use a medium for education that they already use and enjoy?
It keeps them excited
The days when kids would sit in the classroom for hours on end with a teacher droning on at the front are gone. Nowadays, kids want multi-sensory action that keeps them excited and lights up their brain.
The variety of cyberspace and its immense and never-ending databases full of videos, visuals and text that Is interactive keeps kids motivated and wanting to learn. This is super important, because once the motivation is out, the naughtiness and boredom kicks in.
A prominent example are educational games that make difficult concepts easier to understand in a way that kids enjoy.
It doesn’t end at school
E-Learning allows kids to continue their education at home, so learning doesn’t stop at exactly 3 PM. The accessibility of E-Learning allows them to keep up their education in a way that doesn’t feel boring, like traditional homework.
Even the devices children use, such as mobiles, tablets and laptops are easy to carry and use anywhere at any time.
