By the time textbooks and other traditional paper-based resources get approved for use in the syllabus, they will already be partly out-of-date. On the other hand, online and digital resources like YouTube for Schools and Google for Education are always up-to-date with current knowledge that is continuously updated by authors and researchers.
When they are equipped with a hybrid model of using technology-led teaching and learning alongside traditional methods, schools are well-positioned to elevate the learning content and capabilities of their students in ways that drive and sustain excellent grades in national examinations.
Imagine a group of students from ExpertEase Technologies assisted ‘School A’ who viewed videos of a real human heart pumping blood around a real human body, sitting the same examination as students from traditional ‘School B’ who only learn about the heart from viewing diagrams in a ten-year-old textbook.
Also, students from ExpertEase Technologies assisted ‘School A’ get a lecture/presentation delivered by the author of a geography textbook in real-time via Skype.
This will afford the ability to ask questions and be replied similarly to face-to-face interaction. Furthermore, ExpertEase ‘School A’ students will have also viewed videos of actual volcanoes alongside researcher-created illustration videos too, which students from ‘School B’ will have only learnt about through reading their ten-year-old textbooks.
Comparing the ExpertEase eLearning driven Tech-led learning and teaching by ‘School A’ students against the traditional teaching and learning students by ‘School B’ validates that the ExpertEase solution to using ICT in education improves the learning experience for students, whilst also propelling schools to the top of national school leaderboards and league tables.
