Tablets usages in schools have picked a tremendous pace in recent years. The number of schools introducing them as a learning tool, either through a government scheme, or part-funded with parents is the hundreds.
Let us take a look at what could be the cause of this enormous increase in usage. After that, we would take a look at what an art major stands to gain if he or she includes a tablet in his or he school asset. Finally, we will wrap it up with some tablets you might find amazing to use.
As classes were getting bigger, the model of 0ne teacher to thirty students was becoming a lie and personalized learning could only be wished for. The tablet and indeed ICT as a whole brought students and “teachers” closer together and also enable one to learn at one’s pace.
ICT also added the much-needed tweaks that make learning fun. This could be seen in preschools specifically. The kids there need those visuals to stay in class likewise us. A dynamic academic curriculum setting can easily be set up in modern-day learning, a thing that is simply not possible in the traditional classroom.
The tablet specifically allows easy integration into the normal classroom. Unlike the conventional computer systems where you would most likely need to switch classes or at least be presented with a kind of barrier between you and the teacher, the tablet offers no such thing. A tablet will not hinder learning. it allows learning to continue to take place where it is.
Let’s say you are an art major or a science major, what specific advantage do you stand to get from a tablet. Well, medical students have already started seeing the need for a tablet as medical sites started making their applications that appear to fit and work better on the tablet than a laptop. Some of these apps include Atlas anatomy, Lecturio medical videos, Osmosis, Msd pro, Medscape, One Figure, Medbullets, etc.
Most tablets have an E-ink display screen. The E-ink display was created in 1997 by JD Albert, Barrett Comiskey, Joseph Jacobson, Jerome Rubin, and Russ Wilcox. It helps reduce eye stress when looking at the screen. This is a much-needed feature as students tend to be exposed to their tablets for at least 8 hours a day.
Adding to the above, tablets are important during lectures since it allows you to take pictures faster, record voices in higher quality, and take handwritten notes.
