Digital Classrooms For Slow Learners 

Children who are slow learners tend to be late in achieving their milestones and fall behind in various activities including academics. Slow learners may seem to lack the skills  for their age but it is crucial to understand that special education services are provided for students who have a disability, and slow learners typically do not have a disability, even though they need extra support. Slow learners are stuck between a rock and a hard place: their cognitive abilities are too high to be considered for an intellectual disability, but their cognitive abilities are usually too low to be considered for a learning disability. Digital classrooms and supplementary learning methods in schools help slow learners to focus on their studies and make learning easier.

Advantages of Digital Classrooms

Let’s see what changes smart classrooms using digital technology bring to students’ learning. 

  • Enhanced Learning Experiences

Digital smart classrooms provide an enhanced teaching and learning experience. Students can liven up their lessons through smart classes that provide audio-visual exposure. Illustrating information with photos, graphs, maps, flowcharts, and animated videos also makes learning more exciting and easier for students to understand.

  • Interactive Learning Experience

The method through which teachers interact with students helps in improving their learning skills. It helps create a rapport between teachers and students, enabling seamless exchange of knowledge. Students can ask the teacher questions related to the lessons, and also provide answers to the teacher in a way that they can understand. Additionally, teachers can monitor the learning progress of students and motivate them with digital rewards.

  • Easy Access to Online Resources 

Smart classes can be easily accessed online making it an effective and easy tool for students to be used irrespective of time and location. Teachers may explain any subject, and students can download and watch previously recorded videos to help them understand diverse topics

  •  Time Saving Technology and Increase Productivity

Smart classes also help in developing interest among students and avoid boredom. Digital learning and animated classes help to attract children’s attention and ensure they listen attentively throughout the class. Also, these classes do not need students to jot down notes real time and there is minimal diversion of attention. Various tools help teachers distribute assignments, provide feedback and engage in discussions with students, saving time and resources too

According to psychologists, visual learning using smart technology elements like images, graphs, flow charts, videos, etc., are considered highly effective and help students grasp the concepts quickly. Smart classrooms also reduce distractions, and therefore, students can concentrate better and retain more information. 

Smart classroom technology is a boon for the education system and is slowly transforming the traditional learning spaces. While the use of apt technology makes learning more engaging and interactive, it also is inventive, able to adapt to the individual needs of students. This in turn helps boost their confidence, providing them singular attention  while also encouraging them to think beyond their imagination.
