Although many parents and teachers are concerned about the increased use of tablets in schools, there’s evidence that suggests older students may benefit from these tools.
The Fun Factor
Students believe learning with tablets and laptops is more fun than traditional learning methods. Learning apps can liven classes that are perceived as dull, and assistive technology can help explain concepts they’re having difficulty understanding.
Preparation for the Future
We live in an increasingly technological world. Enhancing the ability of students to interact with and even troubleshoot devices can give them a solid foundation in the fundamentals of technology. This is invaluable experience that will help them transition into college and the professional world.
Improved Learning Retention
Students may retain information better when that it’s presented on a device. There’s evidence to suggest that many students do learn better on tablets and laptops than they do using traditional mediums.
Technology can benefit students who learn either faster or slower than average – areas where traditional teaching methods tend to struggle.
