How PC-enabled Learning Is Changing The Education System

Share the knowledge

Benefits of PC-enabled learning 

As technology has rooted its way into our day-to-day existence, our education system has changed drastically. Long gone are the times when students had to rely only on textbooks. With information at the tips of our fingers now, learning is boundless.

I see a major difference in the way we were taught in schools years back and how my kids are learning these days. We mainly relied upon mugging up and rote learning – noting the answers diligently from blackboard, learning definitions by heart and writing them verbatim in exams. However, I now see my kids studying via colourful PPTs and multimedia tools that create a bigger impact. Even basic concepts like alphabets and numbers are taught to them via animated videos and stories that are not just fun and interesting but also quick and easy to learn.

The education system now is much more interactive and engaging. Unlike the rote learning system, the focus is no more on just reading and memorizing various concepts but learning each concept in detail and gaining critical and logical understanding of the same. 

What led to this shift?

A relatively new and interactive way of learning – PC-enabled learning. Students now learn through audio-visual medium that encourages them to stay attentive all through and enables long-term and comprehensive understanding of various concepts.

Here’s how PC-enabled learning is changing the education system:
Smart Content 

With computers in every classroom, textbooks are taking a new turn. They are being digitized and the content is presented in the form of animated videos, documentaries, quizzes, etc that are more comprehensible and lead to long-term retention 

Change in student and teacher roles

Students are a lot more active and engaged. Teachers, rather than just relaying information which student absorbs and regurgitates, are now more of a facilitator helping students learn on their own, at their own pace.

Global Learning 

Learning is no more restricted within the walls of the classroom. Students can access virtual libraries through which they can access a wealth of information anytime. They can collaborate with peers, share files, work together on assignments, etc. 

Improved Teachers Efficiency

Teachers are able to make class presentations, save notes, prepare assessments worksheets, send class emails, etc. With a simple click, they can keep a track of student’s assignments, report cards, etc. This saves energy and allows them ample time to give personal attention and focus on each student equally. 

Skill Development 

Use of computers develops various research and communication skills in students. They gain technical skills, problem-solving skills, analytical and reasoning abilities, etc. that can help them apply their knowledge in the real world.

Fun Learning 

PC use in classrooms has made the entire learning process much more fun. Unlike rote learning, which was mechanical, repetitive and boring, this is engaging and encourages students to actively participate. Even the most difficult concept is simplified and taught via educational games, stories, puzzles, etc that make it interesting and easy.

Dell Anti Rote Day 

The use of computer technology in classrooms has helped eradicate rote learning making the entire teaching-learning process much more dynamic and flexible

Since this form of learning is the need of the hour, Dell India has come up with #DellAntiRoteDay, a day to emphasize on PC-enabled interactive learning and make people aware of its benefits. The objective is to enlighten parents and teachers about the PC usage skills and provide them necessary training and knowledge to use computer technology with confidence.

Dell India is organizing a fun webinar for parents to create an online learning environment at home. Click on the link to register for the same. https://www.dellaarambh.com/webinars/

As a part of the fun #DellAarambh initiative, they even started the #DellRattaPapadChallenge. Watch the video below of me and my kids taking this challenge .

Remember how we used to mug up multiplication tables, science formulas, etc in school? I used to 'rattofy' the entire history lesson a night before the exam, only to forget it later. 🙈 Well, rote learning has never done any good and isn't the best way to learn. I certainly don't consider this method while teaching A&A. . On this #DellAntiRoteDay we took the fun #DellRattaPapadChallenge. We had to repeat the tongue twister #RattaPapadKachaPapad five times. As easy it may sound, it actually wasn't. Check out the entire video to see who, among us three, could get it right in one go. 😉😅 . Nominating my friends @mommys_musings @ashitajain1986 @the_dd_twinsters @sweta.nagubandi to be a part of this fun #DellAarambh initiative. Don’t be a Ratta Papad. Take the #DellRattaPapadChallenge now. @dellindia . . . . . . #themomsagascollab #dellindia #rotelearning #funlearning #interactivelearning #activelearning #learningisfun #dell
