Six Ways Mobile Education Apps are Revolutionizing the Way Students Learn
Digital learning is now more important than ever. As a result, laptop computers, cellphones, and tablets have become an indispensable part of the student experience.
Fremont, CA: Students use mobile devices regardless of how their parents and teachers perceive their use. According to a recent survey, nearly 80 percent of students complete some or all of their coursework on mobile devices. Furthermore, almost 40 percent of students use mobile devices to access research platforms and learning management systems. If given the option, 54 percent and 60 percent of students want to use apps to access lecture slides and check in with their professors, respectively. As a result, school districts and colleges all over the country have begun to implement mobile learning initiatives.
Let's have a look at how mobile education apps are revolutionizing the way students learn:
Mobile-Based Education Apps can Aid in Academic Performance
Mobile apps can aid in the retention of knowledge and, as a result, academic performance. According to research, using leaderboards in game-based learning can significantly impact academic performance.
Mobile-Based Education Apps can Be Used to Teach New Technology Skills
As technology expands in scope and sophistication, students must have the necessary skills to capitalize on its potential. Big data analytics, app-enabled interfaces, IoT, and cloud computing are at the top of the list of technologies that companies must adapt to stay relevant in the age of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
Using Mobile-based Education Apps, Teachers can Pay More Attention to Individual Students
Because of class sizes, it is frequently impossible for teachers to give students the attention they deserve. As a result, students may lose interest in learning. The benefit of apps is that each lesson can be tailored to the student's level of ability.
Mobile Apps Make Learning More Exciting
Innovative learning apps, particularly those that use gamification, can make learning more enjoyable for students. According to research, using game-based interfaces in non-game settings can improve retention and engagement.
Mobile Apps can Help You Improve Your Cognitive Function
While extracurricular activities are important for children, apps can help to inspire intellectual curiosity and improve memory.
Video Capabilities Aid in the Understanding of Complex Subject Matter
Teachers can also use mobile learning apps to create video projects for their virtual classrooms. Similarly, students can use videos to demonstrate what they've learned. Teachers can also create a video series for students to help make difficult subject material more accessible.
