According to the International Society of Technology in Education (ISTE), “One-to-one and BYOD [Bring Your Own Device] are game-changers. It gives students access to digital tools throughout the day, across all subject areas. This challenges educators to rethink and redesign learning activities to make the most of their school’s investment in technology.”
Educational institutions with successful one-to-one device initiatives report similar results. The results reveal increased student achievement and higher engagement. The learning style also enhanced digital literacy skills. As well as, providing a better understanding of the digital landscape. Alongside this, they help to improve career prospects too.
Learning becomes knowledge-driven as BYOD fosters better problem-solving skills. It leads to students using their devices to ask questions and undertake their own research. As a result, it proves to be more beneficial than just attending lectures. Here at TOP-TEC, we are one of the country’s leading manufacturers of collaborative furniture for the classroom. We can work with you to transform the style of learning and teaching for your class.
Collaboration furniture for the classroom
A collaborative learning classroom is a great way to utilise technology. It supports personalised learning and promotes group collaboration. A ‘connected classroom’ combines traditional front-of-class delivery with activities that take place on devices.
By the nature of BYOD, students use various devices that have differing connectivity. With this in mind, your classroom’s furniture should have connectivity integrated into its design. Collaborative furniture & tables facilitate student’s engagement with each other while maintaining the connection between teachers and the subjects they are studying.
You can keep students engaging for longer by encouraging them to interact using connected devices. This could also be shared screens or even table-top writing surfaces. Students should be able to use a device and share whatever they have on the screen with anyone in the classroom.
