Teaching Methods in Education

There are many teaching methods in education that enhance the learning process of the students.

To achieve the goal of teaching, the teacher must adopt effective teaching methods in education. The teacher has many options to choose from different teaching techniques designed specifically for teaching and learning.
Writing lesson plans is a foremost thing that a teacher must do before executing any teaching strategy in the class. The teaching method should be adopted on the basis of certain criteria like the knowledge of the students, the environment and the set of learning goals decided in the academic curriculum.
Students respond differently to different methods of teaching. Also, the students have their unique way of demonstrating the knowledge acquired and absorbing the information that is imparted. So, to aid this process of demonstrating the knowledge, the teacher has to adopt a technique that assists the students in retaining the information and increasing their understanding. There are many techniques to teach kids like questioning, modeling, demonstrating, collaborating, and explaining that have been discussed here.

Specific Methods and Strategies

We all know about the importance of higher education, so now let us learn some methods of teaching we use, as well.


Testing and questioning are always known to be effective methods due to its interactive nature. The questions are asked by the teacher with an intention to know what the student has learned from earlier discussions and what it helps in deciding what should be taught further.
This can be even vice-verse, students questioning the teachers to clarify the doubts that would enhance their understanding of the subject. The inquisitive instinct of the students evoke them to ask questions and satiate their query.
We encourage this in a positive way so that the student's critical thinking is developed. Testing differs in one aspect from questioning. Test is done in order to know about the previous knowledge and already taught things to the student.


Sometimes the experiences can also be shared as a part of knowledge that would work as a source of inspiration for the students. While adopting this method the we give an introduction and a proper summary. Make sure that the information is specific to the audience.
Explanations are accompanied with suitable examples for the better understanding of the students. It is like a discourse on a particular subject or topic that is for the entire class or public. Explaining can be clubbed with the modeling process to be more effective and to have a long-lasting effect on the pupils.


Modeling is a type of visual aid for teaching as well as learning. It is a known fact that human brain absorbs more and understands better when visual aid facilitates explanation. This method works on three criteria - observing, retaining and replicating. The students learn more by observing the things and acquire it by imitating it time and again.
This is also known as reinforced behavior. This type of learning has very important role to play in the learning process especially during the childhood, though it can happen in any stage of life. This helps the students to visualize the things and, then hypothesize the solution.


With the help of demonstrative teaching, students get an opportunity to explore the various aspects and understand the theory from a different perspective. Demonstration is a step-by-step explanation along with their reasons and significance for the better understanding of the student. It enhances the student's understanding by practically applying the knowledge and sharpen their skills and hence, they become capable of identifying and organizing the subject matter in a more efficient way. Practical experimentation is a very good method used for demonstrating the subject.


Teamwork is a contemporary form of collaboration. The students are taught to work in a group that makes the instructing easier for the teacher. This method of teaching promotes a sense of mutual responsibility among the students. They learn to put in more effort to research for the topic and apply effective techniques to get the result.
This inculcates patience and develops an ability to critically analyze a subject. It gives an opportunity to the students to solve the problem by a healthy discussion and co-operation. This is what we call 'group discussions' which motivates the students to perform in a team, show leadership skills and enhances the presentation capabilities as well. This is one of the best direct instructional methods.
These techniques for special education is a little different from the methods and theories for others. The education is imparted to these students based on their strengths and weaknesses. The teachers cater to the special needs of the students like modification in the regular teaching program, use of supplementary aids that allows students to participate in the learning process. Different effective teaching strategies are adopted on the basis of the disabilities. Four kinds of provisions are adopted in special education and they are inclusion, mainstream, segregation and exclusion.
Apart from these defined methods, nowadays many other methods are being adopted to give quality education. The methods like role-play, story or games, seminars, presentations, workshops, conferences, brainstorming, case study, educational trips and modern audio-visual aids like documentary films, computers, internet, etc have been introduced in education. These new methods have increased the pace of learning and understanding. This also enhances the capability of the students to research and logically think for a given problem.
Our Digi-School Program supplements all the above procedures of the Teachers which makes the students learn the subjects with lots of interest and fun.

Impact of Technology on Education

Technology plays a vital role in every sphere of life and education is no exception. The advent of technology has deeply impacted the educational scene.

Technology is a gift of God. After the gift of life it is perhaps the greatest of God's gifts. It is the mother of civilizations, of arts and of sciences. - Freeman Dyson
Technology has certainly changed the way we live. It has impacted different facets of life and redefined living. Undoubtedly, technology plays an important role in every sphere of life. Several mundane manual tasks can be automated, thanks to technology. Also, many complex and critical processes can be carried out with ease and greater efficiency with the help of modern technology. Thanks to the application of technology, living has changed and it has changed for better.

Technology's Impact on Education

Easy access to information
Greater interest in learning
Increased retention of information
Robust information storage
Better presentation of information
Teaching made interactive
Knowledge sharing made easy
Technology has revolutionized the field of education. The importance of technology in schools cannot be ignored. In fact, with the onset of computers in education, it has become easier for teachers to impart knowledge and for students to acquire it. The use of technology has made the process of teaching and learning enjoyable.

Technology is a teaching aid

Computers offer an interactive audio-visual medium. PowerPoint presentations and animation software can be used to present information in an interactive way. Owing to the audio-visual effects, this way of teaching invites greater interest from students. The method is equally helpful for teachers. Projectors and screens facilitate simultaneous viewing of information by a large number of students. Addressing systems using microphones and speakers make it possible for teachers to reach a larger number of students simultaneously. These teaching aids have led to improvements in student attendance and their attentiveness in class. Interactive media have proven to be useful in increasing students' concentration levels.

Technology has made student life easy

Technology aids student expression. Students can use much more than just pen and paper to express themselves or present what they have learned. They can use software to make presentations and projects. This makes them more interested in the subject and leads to better retention of information. With technological aids, they can make easy-to-remember notes and a creative presentation of the information they have acquired. It won't be wrong to say that application of technology has made a student's life easy. It's easier for students to carry a PDA than carrying big fat books to school. An iPad is less bulkier than a pile of notebooks or an ebook reader much lighter than a book.

It's easier to store information

Computers enable better and more robust storage of information. If you weigh chalk, board, books and notebooks against technology, you find that technology can substitute for any and all of these. Computers have replaced chalk and board; they can even do the talking sometimes while the teacher takes a step back and lets the presentations 'speak'. Digital libraries require no physical space and students and teachers sitting in different parts of the world can access the same library at the same time. Compact memory devices have replaced notebooks and a keyboard and computer mouse are the new writing devices. What may have required hundred pages of a book can be compacted into a tiny memory chip. It can take hours to write, but it takes only seconds to type. Storing data has become much easier, owing to technology.

Information is easily accessible

The Internet is a huge information base. It can be used an effective tool for acquiring knowledge. All a web user needs to do is to key in queries to search engines. Users are presented with thousands of search results. There are several websites and web directories that offer information on literally everything in the world. And all this is just a few clicks away. Both teachers and students can benefit from this.

Mutual impact

Thanks to the application of technology, education has become more collaborative. With plethora of information so easily available to students, they can be a part of the process; they don't need to remain at the receiving end. Owing to the use of technology, subject experts can come together to formulate courses, design assessments and better the process of teaching. The day when students located in different parts of the world will be able to seek advice from experts spread across the globe, isn't far. The education then, will be customized. It will cater to different learning needs and varying grasping abilities and interests of students

Road Safety Awareness Programme was held on Wednesday (31-August)2016.
‘Safety first’ is ‘safety always’ – Charles. M. Hayes.
To make the present generation aware of safety measures on road is the need of the time. An awareness programme on the road safety measures was arranged in Ebenezer Marcus International School & Junior college. The traffic inspector Mr. Perumal was the chief guest for the programme. He spoke on the measures to be taken for accident free roads.
People in the modern world are using their personal transportation, which has resulted in more traffic on the roads. Road accidents have become very common due to the vehicle collisions and ignorance of proper road safety measures. It is very important to educate children by incorporating basic road safety rules. Learning about traffic lights and signs contribute significantly in this regard. Children should pay attention while walking on the road and must use zebra crossing to cross the roads. Children should educate their parents to use helmet while driving two wheelers and the persons occupying the front seats in cars must wear seat belts. Life is precious and to prevent accidents, using mobiles and ear phones while crossing the road or rail tracks must be avoided.
Road safety is life safety.
