Rapidly developing technological evolution has naturally affected the process of creating educational content which reflects modern needs. Teachers who write teaching materials, use modern technology to shape and enrich their syllabuses with digital material, which is after all what modern day students demand of them.
Three possible ways of enriching an otherwise outdated educational content are:
- Infographics use
Data and numbers have never been more accessible and what is more, they are available in an attractive and informative way. This modern method of viewing data and statistics draws students’ undivided attention to topics they would otherwise show no interest in.
- Image, sound and video combination
Most texts can be combined and viewed using the right digital content. Sound files, images and videos embellish every aspect of science, history and modern life.
- Displaying units on online platforms
Digital educational platforms can offer learning opportunities like no other learning process; for instance, students can practise independently, revise what they learned in their own time and participate in interactive study group projects, no matter where they are. Moreover, teachers can save, file and reuse or even add to the digital materials anytime and anywhere, since their data can be saved in cloud storage.
