One impactful way digital trends in education are reformulating the way students learn is through adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT).
Mobile technology, including smartphones, tablets, and other connected devices provide many benefits, including improving learning outcomes.
Cloud-connected devices can help professors tap into which students need more personal attention and make the teaching process more productive.
Connectivity allows students to make schedules and conduct research on-the-fly, which can improve task completion times, and textbooks in a digital format reduce cost and storage implications.
Hundreds of digital education tools have been created with the purpose of giving autonomy to the student, improving the administration of academic processes, encouraging collaboration, and facilitating communication between teachers and learners.
Here are presented one of them
1.Edmodo is an educational tool that connects teachers and students, and is assimilated into a social network. In this one, teachers can create online collaborative groups, administer and provide educational materials, measure student performance, and communicate with parents, among other functions.
2. Socrative is a system that allows teachers to create exercises or educational games which students can solve using mobile devices, whether smartphones, laptops, or tablets. Teachers can see the results of the activities and, depending on these, modify the subsequent lessons in order to make them more personalized.
3. Projeqt is a tool that allows you to create multimedia presentations, with dynamic slides in which you can embed interactive maps, links, online quizzes, Twitter timelines, and videos, among other options. During a class session, teachers can share with students academic presentations which are visually adapted to different devices.
4. Thinglink allows educators to create interactive images with music, sounds, texts, and photographs. These can be shared on other websites or on social networks, such as Twitter and Facebook. Thinglink offers the possibility for teachers to create learning methodologies that awaken the curiosity of students through interactive content that can expand their knowledge.
5. cK-12 is a website that seeks to reduce the cost of academic books in the United States and the world. To achieve its objective, this platform has an open source interface that allows creating and distributing educational material through the internet, which can be modified and contain videos, audios, and interactive exercises.
