Christopher Gyngell, Manager of Carfax Education, Abu Dhabi, was recently quoted in AbuDhabi World’s article on ‘Where will innovation in education take learning in the future?’ discussing personalized education plans for children.
You see this particularly through the use of online portals. Children can log in, see their homework and return it to the teacher, while parents can communicate and see grades. It’s an example of when technology in schools works very well.
Now that schools have caught up in implementing this idea, it can only go further – for example, if a child is struggling with a topic in maths, the teacher can set extra homework.
But I caution against an over-reliance on it. Classroom teaching can never be replaced, and at some point that extra interface is needed to get through a hurdle – that’s when teaching becomes great.”
