Classroom Lectures Go Digital
27 Jun 2012
The rapid growth of digital media such as video-on-demand broadcasts or VODcasts leads to schools making their lessons more interactive and digitalised.
TED, an international organisation that specialises in conferences and online inspirational talks, has created a Web site, named TED-Ed, where teachers are able to produce videos or source for digital materials.
In addition, ‘flipped learning’ is becoming more popular. It allows students to watch classes via video, where teachers do not have to be present in person. This is particularly useful when students listen to lectures passively.
