The opening of classes is again around the corner. School children will be going to school despite the threat of the global health crisis. But even then, we should keep our fingers crossed that health protocols will be strictly implemented in schools to eliminate the chances of children getting sick from the life-threatening illness. The education of our children is just too important to forego.
While social distancing is a basic health protocol to follow this pandemic, it may seem difficult to impose in schools. One thing that may be of big help is for the school to have an excellent audio-video system. With a superior audio-video system, a student may see through wider and clearer screens and listen to an audible and well-modulated system even if seated at a chair placed far from the screen to maintain social distancing. If every school has this technology, there should be less worry from parents.
But while we may not expect all schools to have this technology for now. It should be included in their short term plans. This pandemic does not seem to go away very soon, and it helps to be cautious until we have a truly effective vaccine against the coronavirus.
Learning Is Enhanced
School children today are luckier because of the new technology that is used to enhance learning. Before, teachers have only a blackboard and chalk to teach in the classroom. Today audio video is widely used. According to studies, a child’s learning ability is enhanced when audiovisuals are used, and this must be because more senses are used to handle the information thrown to a student.
Studying Is More Entertaining
One of the reasons for absenteeism is boredom from usual classroom activities. With the use of audio-video, a student can be entertained by more colorful presentations. When entertainment is injected through videos, it will make a better presentation that facilitates learning. This makes it more fun for young children to go to school.
Extracurricular Activities is Encouraged
Having an audio-video system that can be used for school activities is essential. When in school programs or other events like weddings, product launches, and church activities, the audio-video system is an important factor that determines the failure or success of an activity.
Such an audio-video system in schools can be used during graduation, intramurals, junior and senior prom, and other school events that require all students to participate.
