Educational Science Software

Educational Science Software

With the advent of the personal computer in our society, in business and our everyday lives, it is not without some irony that the slowest adapting institution has been school and education.

Students still read outdated books, are poor listeners due to under stimulation, and fail in lack of motivation.

In an age of text-messaging, e-mails, and downloadable music, the need for a new way of teaching is evident!

The tremendous benefits of using software for educational purposes are many.

1. The Student is able to interactively participate in the learning rather than just sit still. Trying to focus through long hours of monotonous lectures has proven to be a challenge for students as they are not allowed to express their creative side. By interactively participating, the student will engage his or her mind in more effective and fun ways than simply by listening.

2. Whenever a student missed a segment, a section or simply did not understand, he or she is able to rewind the recording and listen again. Many times, the student did not hear or understand a segment. Without having to disrupt the whole class, he or she can simply replay the missed part of the lecture and continue from his or her preferred point.

3. It relieves a tremendous amount of money for the institutions as they no longer have to pay for field trips, non-reusable material and it also saves time. Planning field trips to the local lake or forest might be doable for even the smallest of schools. But if the aim is to let the students experience the desert, the wetlands, or even the jungle, there will simply not be a possibility without the right financial help. With the right software installed on the schools computers, the student is allowed take on a journey without having to leave the classroom. This saves tremendous amounts of money and time for the institutions.

4. Repetition is truly the mother of all learning. By allowing the student to repeat the desired information as many times as needed, the risk for failing a class is greatly reduced. As the student will be able to take in the relevant information through repetitive exercises, he or she will learn a lot faster.

As learning becomes easier, the results follow, and nothing motivates a student to continue learning as having achieved great results in the past!

Motivation is key for students of all ages.…
