Digital Classroom Must have These!
Digtalising a classroom is a tricky affair. A single person's ideas might not be enough for this to be materialised. All the stake holders, like the administration, Principal, teachers, parents and students should be involved in the planning.
A class room can't be called digital just because it has a digital gadget. For effective digitalisation, there should be a proper chain of resources. Nowadays most of the schools have computers or tablets as part of different schemes by the governments and NGOs.
The tablet/ computer is but one of the tools that can be used in the digital classroom. Experts in new technologies for education have drawn up a list of the different types of equipment required for transforming the 21st-century school, with equipment suited to the specific purpose of each room (e.g. mobile classroom, multimedia room, etc.), and, ideally, a device for each student to ensure an individual learning approach with specific software for each subject taught. The ideal digital school would therefore be equipped with the following:
*Video projectors or interactive video projectors
*Utilities and applications
*Digital teaching content
*Mobile carts to store and recharge mobile devices (laptops or tablets)
*Bluetooth headsets and mice
*Digital cameras and video cameras
*Network printers and scanners
All these together will constitute a digital classroom in the real sense.
