Three Methods of Digital Learning
Cloud sharing allows multiple students and teachers to access, edit, and provide input on a document at anytime, anywhere.
FREMONT, CA: For several years, teachers have had to familiarize themselves with IT, from replacing blackboard with smartboards, Powerpoint presentations, and use of email for communication and assignment submissions. The importance of technology to teachers have been increasing, however, the COVID-19 pandemic have accelerated the need for implementing digital methods in education. Technology is not only a means of delivering information but also the basis for coming up with new teaching methods.
Here are three methods of digital learning:
This year, video call applications have become a common feature in digitally delivered education. Although many people have found it challenging to consider video calls as the current primary teaching method, this technology offers benefits and opportunities in the learning structure.

After the breakout session, these groups can easily work on cloud-shared documents and show them to the rest of the class.
Owing to the fact that field trips have been difficult to plan over the past year because of the pandemic, teachers need to find other ways to bring a subject to life for their students. Virtual Reality (VR) technology is used in remote classrooms as a solution to this issue. Via the use of headphones and audio devices, VR helps users experience the sights and sounds of locations worldwide. For most people, this is the closest they'll ever get to seeing famous landmarks or natural landscapes around the world.
The use of internet-based cloud technology has been increasing for many years, but it has seen a significant increase in schools since last year. Cloud sharing allows multiple students and teachers to access, edit, and provide input on a document at any time and from any location. This is particularly useful during periods of physical separation, but now that teachers are more acquainted with it, it can most certainly be used post lockdown as well.
This type of technology is beneficial for group projects or work because it encourages students to collaborate on a single piece easily and have their efforts measure up. It does, however, necessitate that all students have access to such devices as well as stable internet.
