The UK is pioneering in terms of the use of ICT and digital technologies in many areas of education, Audio- Visual technologies are no exception. In the past decade, audio-visual technology has made huge progress by creating an engaging and interactive environment which is more effective in learning.
Studies have shown that the use of audio-visual aids in the classroom are helpful in achieving curriculum objectives, students react well to interactive audio-visual aids since they are found to be more attentive and retain information better and increasing productivity in the classroom. Students who learn from seeing and interacting can thrive just as much as those who learn by listening. Producing extremely high-quality images also serves to enhance presentations and captivate the attention of the class.
Teachers must work with their students, and students must be able to flexibly learn in order to get the most out of their lessons.
Audio Visual Technology in education has many benefits which are evident. The first benefit is that education becomes far more stimulating and interactive which encourages learning. The second advantage is that by exposing students to technology at a young age will help them gain valuable skills that they need to prepare them for future life.
The right audio-visual setup in a classroom can also assist teachers in preparing and delivering lessons more effectively, interactive displays combined with education-focused software, come with an embedded Android operating system, enables teachers to download a variety of apps with easy sharing of lessons from the cloud onto larger screens and to multiple devices at any one time across more locations, learning is no longer limited to the classroom. The ability to integrate with BYODs (Bring Your Own Devices) such as tablets, mobiles, laptops, and video conferencing technologies are fast changing the audio-visual effectiveness in learning. Teachers can create engaging lessons and can incorporate numerous items into a lesson plan such as websites, images and music that students can interact with – once again improving collaboration amongst students and teachers!
