There are many reasons why technology can be useful in studying. A big plus is that it can help students learn more efficiently.
There is no doubt that technology has had a profound impact on the way we live our lives. Today I want to highlight the advantages it has in the way we study.
I am referring not only to students, but also to those who have to face a public exam, prepare for a conference, or a university exam.
In this article, we will discuss why technology is useful in studying and some of the benefits students can experience when they use certain tools to learn new information and concepts.
ENDLESS RESOURCES AND TIMELY ORGANIZATION
For example, if a student is having difficulty understanding a concept, they can use online resources such as instructional videos or tutorials to help them learn.
Your grandparents or your parents at most, had a school book, a dictionary and some manuals in the city library.
Today you can take advantage of all the resources you find on the web: if you know how to search, there are excellent video and PDF summaries that can help you to better understand what you are studying.
Technology can also help students stay organized and on track.
“By using a calendar or a to-do list application, students can keep track of which tasks they need to complete and when they need to be completed.”
Don’t underestimate this possibility. The best way to be efficient is precisely the ability to organize and set daily, monthly and annual goals
With your mobile phone in hand you always have a tool to write down goals and notes. USE IT!
Technology can also be a great tool for practicing.
Think of a student who can use flashcards or online quizzes to test themselves on the material they have already learned.
You can also do it if you have a test for an exam or to win a place in some public company or state roles.
Overall, there are many ways that technology can help anyone study more effectively and efficiently.
SHARING WORK WITH OTHER STUDENTS
Whether they are school or college students, one of the most significant benefits of using technology in education is to share your work, notes and other information immediately and effectively through a device.
“It’s easy to share your notes with colleagues and classmates”.
Digitizing content has become quite simple, and it’s really useful. Additionally, there are several digital tools available for people with learning difficulties.
Thanks to this it works. It becomes…
EASIER TO COLLABORATE
It is clear that technology makes collaboration with colleagues and companions a game, like when we were kids.
With social networks, special forums and e-mail, today even video streaming services allow you to communicate your skills and exchange ideas: a method to help each other and confront each other.
It is also possible to have a face-to-face meeting in real time and “question” each other. Someone will surely have recorded the repetition of a chapter or at least a topic in the past: now it’s much easier!
Or think about a shared document on Google Documents. I think it’s extraordinary… you can work on it practically at the same time.
ACCESSIBLE DOCUMENTS AND JOBS EVERYWHERE
Another advantage of search technology is that it allows users to access their work and notes from numerous gadgets at the same time with ease.
It is a good idea to consider how convenient it would be if you are going on a trip or out and don’t want to carry a lot of notes or books.
All we need to do now is bring a laptop or tablet with us.
SAVING SPACE AND WEIGHT
How many times will you remember when you were children, dragging heavy totes to school?
Things have certainly changed since then. Today, in fact, it is possible to use a variety of digital equipment to hold numerous books and save a lot of space and weight.
“Tablets have become quite popular both at school and at home: you can use a gadget to take notes, tear apart pieces and receive handouts on a tablet.”
This is not all.
You can underline, highlight, and comment on particular slides or pages of a book using a tablet.
If the teacher permits, you can also record a lecture and then listen to it at home in quieter conditions. We’re talking about one device for everything here.
ACCESS MORE COMPLEX AND RICH CONTENT, OR CREATE IT YOURSELF
Today this topic is still in its infancy, but in the future, there will be many digital books with “additional” material such as videos, photographs, explanations, and notes that can be accessed with a click or a finger.
“It will also be possible to see which parts have been highlighted/ confirmed by other users and determine what is essential.”
However, don’t fixate on the content that is already there: you can develop material that is much more interesting than a regular book.
You can take notes by hand or on a keyboard, and add images, videos and even sounds to produce a truly multimedia document.
For an Anatomy exam a friend of mine took, for example, he digitally copied his notes and photographed the human body in the textbook while “drawing” on it with various colors to highlight a part rather than another.
The possibilities are endless, but I’ll let you invent your own use.
THE WORLD OF SMARTPHONE APPLICATIONS
Here you can discover numerous dedicated study applications for mobile devices, both Android and iOS.
In fact, there are apps that help you concentrate, or utilities that allow you to schedule your study assignments more effectively. There are many useful tools for students.
We also remember applications dedicated to improving memory or are useful, such as taking notes in the classroom.
For example Productivity Challenge Timer, an anti-distraction software that will allow you to stay focused on your studies by providing a simple graphical interface in English.
“Even if you spend too much time on social media, the program will send you motivational messages to help you get back to studying.”
This application also allows you to monitor your productivity and measure your performance so that you can judge how to study better.
I hope I have given you some really interesting tips and resources. Above all, I have shown you all this news as a school revolution and more.
