If you’ve ever seen a young child with a mobile phone you’ll understand that use of technology is becoming ingrained in the younger generation. This is due, obviously, to over-exposure, there is technology at every corner.
We can do one of two things: we can encourage the use of technology or we can attempt to suppress it.
The right thing to do is to nurture a child’s use of technology as this will better equip them to face the brave new world of technology that is undoubtedly around the corner. One important way to do this is by using more technology within the education sector.
Of all technology one of the most effective in the education space is audio visual technology. Audio visual installations can enhance how education is delivered in numerous ways:
Video conferencing can essentially open up the old concept of the classroom. It is now possible to make meaningful connections with learners from all around the world, invaluable for a pupil’s cultural awareness.
On a more practical level, audio visual technology can radically improve how lessons can be delivered. Children often learning best within multi-sensory environments, i.e. environments that appeal to all the senses. Modern projection or sound systems can deliver a very high quality of visual and audio output, which becomes instructive and effective when used in an learning setting.
