Does new technology help students?

The way we educated our students years ago still holds value. As technology becomes more common in our daily lives, teaching methods improve. Using technology can teach students digital skills like using computers, managing files, and staying safe online. It also helps prepare students for future workplaces, promoting academic success, responsibility, and adaptability in modern education.

How can I use a teleprompter in the classroom?

The benefit of using a teleprompter in the classroom is its potential to further aid in closing the learning gap. People have different learning styles, including visual, auditory, reading, and writing.

  1. Speaking- When you have a student create a script and practice reading it, they are working on articulation, speed, and control of the flow when speaking.

  2. Writing- By creating scripts, students go through the writing process. Reinforcing the importance of having well-written content that they will be speaking.

  3. Listening- It improves active listening skills by allowing students to hear their classmates' presentations."

  4. Reading- Reading from teleprompters can improve word recognition and reading rate. 

As technology becomes a part of our lives, it’s crucial to adapt the classroom to meet the needs of both teachers and students. Utilizing a teleprompter holds great potential for education. It's vital to have clear and concise educational objectives. Well-defined goals are the foundation of successful learning. Incorporate technology that matches your goals and caters to different learning styles for maximum engagement. Teaching kids about technology fosters independence and confidence in seeking information independently.

In conclusion, integrating technology, such as teleprompters, into the educational landscape not only lightens the load for presenters but also enhances the learning experience for students. Adapting teaching methods to the changing technological landscape is essential in preparing students for the future. By embracing these tools and setting clear educational objectives, we empower students to become independent learners.
