E-learning: The Silent Revolution
E-learning is a comprehensive solution designed to assist teachers in meeting with their day to day classroom challenges and enhancing students academic performance with simple, practical and meaningful use of technology. It provides teachers with instant access to multimedia content and instructional materials mapped exactly to the specific curriculum guidelines for use in class and also enables teachers to instantly assess and evaluate the learning achieved by their students in class with innovative use of technology. It helps teachers to ensure that every child in the class is learning, given the wide diversity of learning styles in the classroom. It is also highly efficient in maintaining students interest and engagement in learning inside the classroom and simplifies the problems of teaching abstract curriculum concepts that are difficult for students to visualize or relate to through the provision of three-dimensional, interactive multi-media module.
E-learning has resulted in a paradigm shift in education systems. E-learning is defined as Internet-enabled learning that involves the convergence of the Internet and learning. The rapid development of Internet has facilitated its growth. E-learning should not be just a machine based method for teaching and will be only effective in engaging all the participants when it has a human touch. The learning can be on any level, elementary school, college, or corporate. E-learning is gaining popularity because of the obvious advantages it offers -
E-learning requires investment of time and effort in developing new skills, new approaches, and new resources: perhaps time and effort that would otherwise be spent on research. However, you can save time and effort in the long term. For example, you may create banks of flexible resources that can be reused, you may design learning activities that can be redeployed, or you may produce computer assisted assessment (CAA) that will allow you to cope with increasing student numbers with no increase in marking time.
We at DLDAV Pitampura are striving towards using the innovative technology in the teaching-learning process thereby assisting teachers in meeting with their day to day classroom challenges and enhancing students academic performance with simple, practical and meaningful use of technology. Existing classrooms are converted into e-learning rooms equipped with Interactive Boards and a PC connected to a central Knowledge center inside the school campus. Teachers use the digital resources such as animations, video clips and simulated models as part of their classroom period to teach the specific topics through e-learning enabling a multi-sensory learning experience for the students. A unique assessment tool is provided in the class room for teachers to make instant formative assessment in every session. Students answer the test with a powerful hand-held remote device E-learning thus offers practical ways of dealing with some of these challenges and can help shift our role from that of teacher to a guide and facilitator of students' learning.
