Maybe we’re showing our age, but back in the day – make that way back in the day – the only tools teachers had to teach with were books, blackboards and typewriters. Only the science, shop, and home economics classes had true hands-on learning. (And gym class if you count dodge balls as hands-on learning.)
Today, it’s a totally different story. Teachers from K-12 on up have access to a plethora of simulation technology to engage students and accelerate learning. As a top resource for educational technology, Aidex is fortunate to work with some of the best simulation technology available. Here’s what we like about bringing hands-on learning into classrooms and
Reason1: Simulation training is available in a wide range of disciplines, from mechatronics to medicine, aeronautics to automotive spray painting.
Reason 2: Students learn by doing. Rather than sitting through a lecture on concepts, students engage in hands-on learning.
Reason 3: Simulation improves students’ skills through repetition.
Reason 4: Students gain a greater understanding about the consequences of their actions and the need to reduce errors.
Reason 5: Simulation helps student retain more of what they are taught.
Reason 6: Students address hands-on thinking skills, including knowledge-in-action, procedures, decision-making, and effective communication.
Reason 7: Simulation learning can be customized for beginners, intermediates and experts to hone their skills as to speak.
Reason 8: Students don’t have to wait for a real situation to come up in order to learn.
Reason 10: Aidex represents some of the top manufacturers in simulation education technology and we always have the latest simulation tools.
We’ve shared just a few of our simulation technologies for education in this post. To learn more, visit our website or email us at Info2@aidex.com. We’d like to connect with you.
