Today’s students easily adapt to rapidly changing technology. Incorporating these advances into the classroom environment is vital for a variety of reasons. As AVID has attuned to the evolving needs of the Education market, we have found the following points to be the most motivating factors that guide our EdTech research and development.
Enhancing the Classroom Environment
Educators and students are able to harness a variety of medium via EdTech to complement lesson plans, school assignments or projects to create a diverse learning environment.
Easily Linking Teachers to Students
No matter what age group students may fall in, technology in the classroom effectively transforms the way educators and students communicate.
Allowing for Better Focus in Testing Environments
Utilizing headphones or headsets for testing situations is beneficial for not only listening comprehension and speech, but for dampening surrounding noise and distractions to help students concentrate.
Customizing Learning Experience
EdTech allows teachers to provide more assistance to those students who require extra attention or to create a curriculum that lets them learn at their own pace.
Students are able to work closely together for group projects and assignments and may easily share ideas by linking devices.
Teaching Online Etiquette
Students gain more knowledge concerning their digital footprint and learn valuable lessons in how to communicate in a shared, structured environment.
Instilling a Sense of Ownership
Allowing students to have their own device, headphone or headset for the school year helps them develop a sense of responsibility.
