The addition of technology into the classroom can help transform the classroom experience from a classic teacher centred one into a student-centered experience – with students taking a more active role in their learning.
- In a student-centered classroom, the teacher becomes more of a guide as the students engage with and tackle the day’s lesson. And there is nothing better than seeing your students fully engaged! It is important to understand that integrating technology into the classroom is by no means a replacement for an effective teacher. To put it simply, the ideal classroom environment would be one that is student-centred and includes a carefully selected blend of instructional technologies with face-to-face communication.

  • Technology provides teachers and students with access to a variety of educational resources that inspire creativity, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration.
  • It promotes inclusion and the development of digital literacy skills.
  • It extends learning beyond the text – and beyond the classroom walls.
  • It ultimately exposes students and teachers to new online global communities. This, in turn, promotes a global awareness, which is an essential component to a 21st-century education.
