Converting Online Classroom in Fun for Learners and Role of Ed Tech Tools in It – Surrounded by a lot of distractions like loud voices around the house, TV, family members talking in loud voices; it becomes very difficult to make the student concentrate in an online classroom. Although students enjoy a lot in online classrooms and as per new innovations in online learning, LMS is there to support the students. LMS makes online learning for the students easier and simpler. Along with this today tools like the fees management system also help students and school management a lot, as the it keeps record of all the matters related to fees submitted by students. Despite having so many facilities, students sometimes feel bored. The reason behind this is students and kids have a tendency of desiring for change in their learning system. Same learning and teaching system makes them feel bored and they lose their interest in online learning too. Tutors and mentors although try a lot to make interest of the students’ constant in their teaching but they have to also understand student’s side that they have to study 5-6 subjects daily that too in same medium and in same way, it becomes a big boredom for them to endure the same thing daily 5-6 hours & finally being irritated they lose their interest in studies. So, lest discuss the methods through which online classroom can be made fun for the students:
During online classes tutor can be visually present as well as via audio too. So, when it comes to visual presentation then the tutor needs to be presentable properly. Visual presentation includes many factors like location and its background should be properly settled for teaching with a proper board, teacher should be well dressed, the camera angle should be in a way that teacher and black/white board should be clearly visible and a simple background will be enough for the students to concentrate. Face-to-face interaction with a tutor always makes a good bond with students, even if they are demoralised due to any reason then they get inspired seeing their favourite teacher. If the teacher is teaching via recorded audios and lectures or through audio clips then it is necessary firstly for the tutor to speak clearly and with a proper, grave and attractive intonation which can attract the mind of students they can imagine the study material you are speaking about in the audio clips. The tone of the speaker should not be in single frequency, this makes students sleepy. This can be related to storytelling, when we do story telling if we don’t include fun and changed intonation in our storytelling no kid will take interest in it. So, these important factors can make online classes fun for students.
These days kids are smarter than adults and it’s all happening just because of technology. They have so much technological support this day around them that they don’t need much guidance for any task. So, if these technological aspects get induced into the learning process, then online learning can be much fun for them. Tutors can use many new methods to teach online like digital boards instead of black boards, digital pointer instead of sticks to point on boards, powerpoint presentations, virtual games to create some fun while teaching. After choosing these new mediums tutors should also assure that he should have proper knowledge of operating those tools and new technology and should seek how interactive he/she can make it for students. Kids always like something new and they like such innovations in learning methods.
