With the use of multimedia, we ensure that the conceptual understanding is much better
Learning today is more studentcentred and from that perspective our first challenge is to ensure that the student understands the concepts and thereafter to develop the broad content for CBSE, ICSE or any other board. Each student has a different IQ level and each teacher also has a unique style of teaching.
Teachers these days are involved in the assessment of students, both formative and summative. With the use of different tools created by Pearson, accomplishing these assessments has become handier for teachers and the teaching time in classrooms have gone up. Pearson ensures that the real time teaching in classroom is lot more as compared to the time one spends in these assessment tasks. We also have various levels of Teachers Training Certification Programmes.
Pearson engages teachers with more than 20 years of experience for content development. We customise the entire ebook according to the choice of a particular school and then provide what is suitable to them. While creating content, we make sure that it is made by Indian teachers, and is geared to be useful to the Indian teachers. The language is not British accent or US accent, it is Indian English.
With the help of active 3D, students understand a subject much better. So if we are talking about human heart, human ear and cuboids that one can see literally on the screen, then one has to change the values and rotate to see how it will look like. Earlier, students would just mug up everything, write the exam and forget it. Use of multimedia ensures enhanced conceptual understanding about the subject.
Pearson aims to reduce the weight from a student’s back by ensuring that whatever is taught on the whiteboard is there on the tabs. Pearson is also planning to launch cloud-based contents, wherein a student can access the work which is done by other students and teachers across the globe.
