The school system has changed drastically during the past couple of decades and even more so in the past year. The ways of absorbing and passing on knowledge have developed rapidly and in many different directions. Chalk boards, quills, ink pens and paper notebooks are becoming an echo from the past. Technology has come through in every aspect of our lives and the school system is no different. The educational structures had to catch up, especially with the hybrid remote/on-site learning models.. Zeitgeist is happening – schools need to adjust.
The multimedia boom
Every cloud has a silver lining though, so thankfully many interesting solutions have appeared on the horizon. The dynamic growth of both the multimedia content and web systems allowed the wide use of active learning applications, online transmitting and webcasting. For many students the implementation of various multimedia solutions to the lecture determines its success. In today’s times it is a common practice to engage the listeners with the use of simple game mechanics during group work, HD video streaming or animations. All of the above have the potential to expand and enrich the learning experience, breaking the usual “boredom” stereotype commonly associated with schoolwork, learning and learning institutions. There is one that hasn’t been mentioned here yet, but it just might be the best solution of them all – Vivitek’s NovoConnect solutions benefits both sides of the learning process and has the potential to tidy up the lecture by making use of various high-tech solutions at once.
