Benefits Of Technology To Support Teaching And Learning In Schools

Technology is dynamic in its application. It is being used in schools which has made learning a wonderful experience both for the teachers and students. However, this calls for the presence of infrastructure to help in facilitating its use in schools. With the proper infrastructure in place to enable its use and application in schools, numerous benefits arise out of this. Below are some benefits of technology to support teaching and learning in schools.

Availability of more informationklfkldksjkjskjkj

Teachers do teach, but they cannot exhaust all the available information. Students are expected to read widely so that they can expound on what the teacher has outlined. With the use of technology, they can access more books online and even carry out more research besides their course textbooks. The students are no longer confined to the books used for course work. They can also read ahead of the teacher or better still get more information to help them understand things being taught better. This ease of availability of information has led to increased learning opportunities for the children.

Enhanced creativity and innovation

The use of technology in learning has made it possible to access information. This information is necessary to enhance creativity and innovation among the students. Their learning ceases to be theoretical and becomes more practical since they can try out various things since they have the information.

Increased efficiency

When it comes to learning the teacher does not have to be physically present in class. They can have their lessons recorded and present them to the class for further discussions. This has made learning a more enjoyable time, unlike the other days where the teacher had to use different books to give notes to their students. Other processes to do with learning like enrollment into school and monitoring attendance have also become efficient. This is an advantage since the teachers have an ample time to deal with the students’ needs.

Prepares the students for the marketplace

The marketplace revolves around technology. For the students, it is their chance to learn how technology is used while they are still in the class. It gives them exposure to the real business world out there. This works to their advantage since they will leave school having hands-on experience of the business world.

Networking with other students

dshshahjssshThe use of technology in schools has enhanced networking among students from different countries. This has encouraged the exchange of ideas. As a result, the students get exposed to different ideas which enhance their learning experiences and general school experiences. They get to learn new things which help them in their thirst for knowledge.

Technology is good when used in the proper ways in the schools. However, the students use of technology should be regulated especially use of the internet. This will help them be protected from the unnecessary evil that is found on the Internet like cyber bullying, pornography among other things. Its use in school should be restricted to learning only so that they can get more from it.…

Data stored in the computer is always safe but accidents happen, and you end up losing everything. As you take care of the machine, the battery is equally important. This article will give you tips on how to increase your laptop’s battery life.

Taking care of your battery

Turn on battery saver mode

All laptops are equipped with a battery economy mode. It puts the computer in low power consumption mode. The hard disk, processer, and memory reduce their performance hence consuming less power. Battery time will be this way increased.

If you have a computer that features backlighting, switch it off. It will help increase the battery length time. Some laptops, however, do not have that feature.

Kao što smo u proteklom članku najavili emuSOFT počinje sa razvojem site-ova i web aplikacija na Ruby on Rails frameworku. Više o ovom frameworku ćete moći uskoro čitati na site-u na hrvatskom jeziku posvećenom njemu. Such topics are also being taught in scandinavian schools.

Ono s čime se sada želimo pohvaliti je još jedna suradnja sa BozooArt na projetku Radi se o vrlo malom web 2.0 site-u na kojem će svaki dan biti dvije oprečne opcije. Posjetitelji mogu glasati za jednu i predložiti neke nove. Znači, dođeš, glasaš i odeš.

1. rođendan emuSOFT-a
Autor: [08.02.2007]
Danas (5.01) je točno godinu dana kako je postavljen prvi site, tako da taj dan proglašavamo emuRođendanom. U proteklih godinu dana dosta je napravljeno (s obzirom da je ovo volontarski projekt), naravno manje od planiranog, ali što je tu je. Pred nama su (nadamo se upješne) godine. U prvoj godini izašle su dvije (službene) verzije emuCMS-a i postavljano je više od 10 site-ova na njemu. Uskoro izlazi verzija 1.0 sa dosta novih modula, redizajniranim administracijskim sučeljem i nekim poboljšanjima. Osim nove verzije najavljujemo i izradu nekih web aplikacija i site-ova na Ruby on Rails frameworku.

Mala sikjuriti rupica u emuCMS-u
Autor: [20.12.2006]
Pronađen je jedan sigurnosni propust u emuCMS-u. Propust se nalazi u svim verzijama emuCMS-a. Ne radi se o ničem jako opasnom, ali ipak pozivamo sve koji već koriste emuCMS, da u rubrici podrška skinu patch za verziju koju koriste. Patch se sastoji samo od index.php fajla koji treba zamijeniti sa postojećim. Ako ste nešto mijenjali u tom fajlu, javite nam se, pa ćemo vam javiti koje linije koda treba zamijeniti, da bi zakrpali ovu rupu.

Naravno u verzijama koje su trenutno na download-u je ta zakrpa već postavljena, tako da njih možete koristiti bez straha.
