3. It inspires student-centred learning


A strong wi-fi connection enables educators to analyse a student’s individual needs and tailor lessons to match them accordingly. Internet based resources aid deep learning and understanding. This is because it relates the alien topic to something the student is already familiar with. It can positively contribute to an increased sense of autonomy in the learner and cement a mutual respect within the learner-teacher relationship. Examples of student-centred learning that requires strong internet includes; interactive quizzes through apps such as Kahoot! PowerPoint presentations and producing mind maps through Microsoft whiteboard, to name but a few. Learners can also enhance their skills by using various platforms like YouTube, and Google in a safe way using a tiered permissions structure.
If you are concerned about internet access for students, that is totally okay!
