Impact of Mobile App Development on Education
The kids today are extremely techno-savvy and they have an inbuilt grip to absorb things on mobile – be it a game or be it learning various operations without someone teaching them! They get more engaged to things that are taught digitally through an app rather than learning with the obsolete blackboard-pen method.
- STUDENTS HAVE BECOME INDEPENDENT LEARNERS
Because of mobile apps, learning process is not just limited to classrooms or coaching classes. The impact of technology is such that people can gain knowledge just by sitting at home and Google out the queries that they have. Since the whole world is going digital, having a hand on mobile devices and applications is only going to be useful to them in future as it will be easy for them to adapt to new technologies with ease.
- BROAD PERSPECTIVE
The old days of just limiting the knowledge to just text-books are gone long time back. They have the answers to all their curious questions almost at the tips of their fingers. They have broader perspective of technology and other things because they are virtually learning many things as per global standards.
- EASY TO ENGAGE STUDENTS
Teaching these days is no longer limited to boring chalkboard method. With attractive mobile apps that convey knowledge in the most effective and non-boring manner, it becomes easy for teachers and parents to keep the students engaged into the study. Mobile apps have a huge impact in making special kids absorb things visually in certain cases where classroom grasping is not possible for them.
- NEW LEARNING METHODS
Not just students but teachers have also found new learning methods because of mobile apps and browsers. They too can stay abreast with technology and convey things out-of-the-box by using advanced techniques like videos, social media and interesting images. There are many games and video applications available that can make education interesting for students and make
teacher's job easier too.
- THE FLIP SIDE
The flip side about the mobile app and technology inclination is that the value of teachers and connection with them has reduced. Students enrolled in online courses will not have the face-to-face learning experience. Another flip side is that it is very challenging these days for teachers to adapt to technology and keep pace with it all the time. This may dampen their job security. Integrating education with technology has a huge impact in the way information is passed on to the students and should be used to the best of its potential.
