We have been talking a lot about interactivity in the classroom, which is to develop a positive, unique and friendly environment for both students and teachers. A survey by CompTIA, a trade association in the IT field, found that 78% of educators questioned felt technology had a positive effect on classrooms. Additionally, 65% of the educators said technology made their students more productive. Hence, as we are living in such a digital world, innovative technologies are improving the teaching practices in classrooms, which makes the way of teaching and learning gradually change in various aspects.
Unlike traditional presentations, nowadays we use more complex and effective ways of presenting information within the classroom. Not only PowerPoint, but other methods are also included, namely Prezi, Zoho Show, Google Slides, Keynote, Xtranormal, with the amazing help of animations, charts, infographics, etc. These are the main suggestions for criteria in choosing your own presentation platform: features, design, simplicity, cost, and most importantly, overall performance.
Machine learning application & assessment – Why not?
Digital education nowadays is generating new learning opportunities as with modern facilities and equipment, students engage more actively, practice-focused with personalised instruction with the innovative teaching and learning strategies.
Remarkably, learning with video-based learning, blockchain, AI assessments, using augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) trends are making education technology a compelling experience. As those are increasingly being used to explain complex concepts, Beetsoft has worked as an outstanding education outsourcing services provider for clients in this industry. With the application of technology, especially AR / MR / VR in teaching, we bring innovation to the field.
If the in-house team of your educational institution cannot work on the project, managers can consider using VR outsourcing for the best outcome. With this help of machine learning, the teaching quality will undoubtedly be improved, which is beneficial for teachers, students and also parents.
The usage of tech devices
The use of technology in education is now undeniable. However, to avoid indiscipline within the learning environment, teachers should establish some policies and procedures including dos and donts in which time frame students can use a device. It must be highlighted that technology is used for learning purposes only! How? Be explicit about which behaviors, websites, or apps are allowed in class and which arent. Teachers also should implement some restrictions on internet usage to prevent students from accessing irrelevant websites that are not for learning and research purposes. This should be an effective way to control the fact that students are distracted and struggle to involve actively during lessons.
Overall, it can not be denied that the use of technology has a huge impact on education. Interactive technology is evolving all the time and its development in the industry can clearly be seen. However, we still have to balance between tech and non-tech use. The use of technology in classrooms should not replace meaningful non-tech activities in total. Students still need time for face-to-face discussion, hands-on creativity and many other team-building classroom activities.
The benefits of interactive technology in EdTech are undoubtedly vast, but it’s important to remember to use it wisely.

Considering your AR / MR / VR in teaching insights, by providing a learning space that blocks out distraction, AR/VR can nurture focus, which helps students foster social and emotional skills.
Thanks to the development of IT and Digital era, we can study more easier with every lesson. My lecturer don’t need to come to the class every day and see sleeping students, chatting guys. Just few days, they can stay home and share with us the streaming or send homework to us via management apps of the school. I believe that IT will grow up faster and change better in the the future.
It is said that there are 7 Reasons why Students Need Technology in the Classroom:
Using technology in the classroom gives teachers and other faculty members the opportunity to develop their student’s digital citizenship skills. It’s one thing to use mobile devices, it’s a completely other thing to know how to use them correctly and responsibly.
There is certainly a lot to know about this topic. I love all of the points you have made. Lizabeth Erie Schach
