The world has become more competitive than ever before in history. If students are to keep up with this competitive world, then they too have to learn at an extremely rapid rate. In order to facilitate such rapid learning, the use of teaching resources is no longer an option, but an obligation. These technological instruments may vary from the relatively simple scientific calculators to the use of centralized networks in the classroom. This article will concentrate on the use of LAN networks in classrooms because this has proven to be one of the most efficient teaching methods available.
All students should be provided with a personal computer, an important part of teaching resources. A LAN (local area network) can be setup between these computers’ and the teacher’s computer. In order to setup such as network, cables and connectors can be used. If financially possible, a wireless network is more preferred. The teacher will have the ability send assignments and lessons to students via the network. Students can complete such assignments on their computers and send these back to the teacher.
The main advantage of providing students with PCs is that they will have the ability to use word processors, dictionary software and calculators to complete their work. Therefore their work is likely to be of higher quality and carry fewer mistakes. Students can also include photos and diagrams in their assignments, without having to print them out. This will not only save paper, but will prevent the use of space to store such documents. The teacher also has the ability to supply students with flash/shock wave applications, videos and audio clips and other such applications which are computer dependent (needs the use of a computer).
