The New Age is a time of change. A time when we are at the brink of a new era in
education. In this blog post, I will talk about some approaches that today’s teachers
can use in order to evolve with our ever-changing world and become experts again!
Teachers are always looking for better ways of reaching out to their students by
adopting new teaching methods which suit the various students.

DIGITIZATION TEACHING METHOD
The traditional “chalk and talk” method of teaching that has continued for hundreds of
years has now been replaced by technology. It is the age of the “digital”.
Digital lab offers the students and the teachers an opportunity to create layers of
digital information including both a virtual world and a real-world element, to interact
with in real time. We live in a digital age so it’s no surprise that the shift towards new
teaching methods is largely due to digitization. With all of our other devices, there are
plenty of ways for students with differing learning styles. One way we have seen this
change the classroom setting is through e-books which allow readers instant access to
texts. This applies to online discussions that allow participants from all over the world
to participate at once through text messages or video chats. This new generation is
more comfortable with collaborative, online technologies, where pen and notebooks
formed the toolkit of previous generations, today’s teachers come to home equipped
with laptops, smart phones, tablets, etc.
Digital teaching (presentations) is one of the most popular new-age teaching methods.
Students can access lessons from anywhere, anytime with an internet connection.
Teachers can prepare and present their lesson online at a student’s pace. Which helps
children learn at a faster rate in an engaging and interactive environment. By using
multimedia tools such as social media and smartphones.
ADVANTAGES OF DIGITAL TEACHING METHOD
- A virtual classroom provides the opportunity for students to receive instructions from
a teacher directly in an interactive environment.
- A digital lab also develops some writing skills: spelling, grammar, punctuation,
editing and re-drafting. Still, new technologies encourage independent and active
learning, and students’ responsibility for their own learning.
- It is a major advantage to motivate students to learn in a easier way, to understand
with methods that are easy to grasp which gives better knowledge.
In addition to Digitization, Creative Teaching Methods, Theme Based Teaching methods
Content-Based Teaching Method and Project-Based Teaching Methods , are the new
age teaching methodologies.
With technology, education has taken a whole new meaning that it leaves us with no
doubt that our educational system has been transformed owing to the ever-advancing
technology. Technology and education are a great combination if used together with a
right reason and vision.
