There was a time when teachers only needed chalk and blackboard to teach.
These days, the methods are as diverse and a teacher has to engage a student’s interest in the best way possible. This means that there should be varied teaching instruction such as using multimedia and other forms of authentic instructional materials like art.
I enjoy introducing kids to music and video that are appropriate for my class topics. Thus, for a big class of 45 Grade 8 students, I need some help when it comes to audio materials. This is where portable speakers come in. It will help if I have audio and video files to introduce to the students when there are new topics and lessons to discuss and it will help to arouse their interest as well.
Young learners are drawn to music and videos and perhaps someday I can use these to make their learning experiences more interactive.
