There will be an immense and impactful growth of our brain if presented with information in a variety of ways. Learning through digital mediums is one of the ways to make the process quick, effective and easier. But there are a few myths that stop parents as well as students from adopting digital learning mediums like live interactive videos, e-books, recorded lectures etc. To get benefited from online learning, you first need to break those myths and accept the reality. Let’s remove some myths to use digital learning mediums to the best of your benefit by checking digital learning myths vs realities.
Myth #1 Learning through digital mediums is not so effective and significant.
Learning through digital mediums is as effective and significant as classroom coaching. Students get the same quality of education, experienced teachers and discipline in live classes as they get in physical classes.
There are many success stories of students who topped in competitive exams by taking advantage of digital learning mediums like live online classes, recorded video lectures etc. For medical/engineering entrance exams to the nation’s toughest UPSC exam, so many students from a variety of backgrounds and regions in India have accommodated digital learning in their exam preparation routines to come out with flying colours.
Myth#2 Digital Learning is only for the gifted children
One key component of learning through digital mediums is personalized learning. Based on learning style and habits, students can easily opt for the suitable medium. For instance, if a student finds learning through visuals more effective, he/she can opt for videos while the one who can retain information by listening to it can go for audio lectures.
The student’s needs and abilities are at the center. The course is individualized based on student’s strengths and weaknesses. One of the most important and ignored reasons for failure is that we follow what works for others, without attending to our personal requirements. We can only become our best selves if we tap and work on our unique characteristics rather than following the crowd.
Myth#3 Online learning doesn’t offer quality because it’s too cheap.
Digital learning is no doubt low cost and within economical range, but this doesn’t mean it compromises with the quality of education. Recorded video lectures, e-books, and audio recordings along with additional benefits of personal attention, time and place flexibility offer high-quality education even through digital learning mediums.
Myth#4 Digital Learning is bulky; you need computers and internet connection for it.
Digital learning is available in any form along with any feature that you desire. You can attend classes on desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile phone. You can have portable lectures in form of compact and concise audio lectures condensed into your pen drive, for which you don’t need the internet connection. You can carry your classroom on your device and connect with your personal tutor over video conferencing for an interactive session.
Myth#5 Learning through digital mediums doesn’t offer personal attention of teachers.
This myth stops parents as well as students from adopting digital learning mediums. But, students get the same attention of the teachers in live interactive classes as they get in physical classes. Teachers pay due attention to each student and focus on one-to-one interaction.
Further, a chapter once done in the class is considered complete. Classroom teaching is according to the general level of understanding, not an individual level of understanding. But what when you require additional help related to chapter during the revision? What if you need extra help to raise up your level from easy to moderate to difficult questions? This is where the need of digital learning medium arises. One just cannot afford any loopholes when preparing for a national level examination with neckline competition.
Hope these myths about learning through digital mediums will no longer stop you from going digital to strengthen your NEET/JEE exam preparation. Switch to digital learning with Aakash Digital and ace the exam to achieve your goals.
