Impact of technology on education
In the world of EdTech there has been a change in assessment methods. Incorporating the use of technology and student assessments has had a positive impact on teachers’ ability to support their students. There are three key resources that have changed teacher’s perception on assessment.
1. The provision of immediate feedback
Using EdTech and implementing an automated marking system eases teachers workload, enabling them to focus on students’ strengths and weaknesses. Giving teachers the opportunity to offer students more support where required. Additionally, students react well and show a willingness to progress when receiving feedback on assessments quickly.
2. Developing revision journals
Providing students with revision journals via electronic devices advances their classroom knowledge. When teachers are teaching in class, they can only focus on so much content within the hour they have a day for each subject. Therefore, online revision journals support students outside of school and enable students to work with parents to expand their knowledge. Also, this gives students the opportunity to work on an area that they believe is their weakness and teachers can assign revision according to their progress in class too.
3. Producing progressing mapping
The ability to track progress and identify students strengths and improve their weaknesses. Tracking this data via electronic devices gives students, teachers and parents access. Also, teachers can use this progress tracker to tailor learning in the classroom dependant on what the majority of the class’s requirements are. Furthermore, this information can be used at parents evening, staff meetings and great form of evidence when discussing school funds.
The impact of technology on education has certainly shown an increase in productivity for both teachers and students. Invest in digital devices with edde education, to support your students’ assessments and progress. Additionally, it helps teacher’s workload to be reduced and enable them to work on students’ capabilities.
