Remember the old school methods of learning? Too many notebooks, too many stationeries, too much at once to comprehend and a tight-packed schedule that won’t budge. We understand schools are meant to inculcate discipline and a sense of sticking to the schedule, but we are talking about the learning your kid needs at home, or at times when they are not at school. And for that, the conventional methods of learning are not very appropriate, because today, kids need to develop an interest in something to engage with it. Not many parents and teachers might have sensed that students are gradually catching up with the digital pace, and this is the right time to cater them with the smart ways of learning. Now when we say smart ways of learning, what could be smarter than a mobile app with unlimited, easy-to-understand content?
Mobile app development companies are leveraging this opportunity to build better and all-inclusive study packages instilled in mobile apps with a range of interactive features. But what makes these mobile apps so compelling to students and why they are replacing conventional methods of learning? Let’s have a look:
Mobile App Developers create engaging apps
The first and foremost thing that a student wants in a mobile app meant for learning is that it should be engaging; else it is the same as ordinary methods of learning. And this is exactly what the mobile app development companies are giving them. The good thing about mobile apps is that you can use many interactive elements to create content that is refined and easy to parse. One such example of the same could be Infographics, which are quite sufficient on their own when it comes to getting the message across, in least number of words.
Vastness of Content
Learning through a mobile app means there are no limits on what, how much, and how well you can learn. Because a mobile app is not a tangible thing, an app developer can provide as much content as possible. And the good thing is that with the advent of cloud technologies, any type of data can be stored on cloud, and deployed on demand.
The only problem here is that some of the learning apps cannot be used without an active internet connection; on the other hand, the ones that do not need internet connection to display content, use a lot of internal storage which may interfere with the device’s performance.
Easy to Update and Send Push Notifications
Education cannot be seen from a single frame these days because it keeps evolving. New topics, subject material, information etc. arrive often to improve the level of education. Matching shoulders with the current scenario, mobile apps are well equipped to adapt to the changes in the education sector with the help of updates. No matter what and how many changes the school boards or affiliating bodies make, mobile app development will always have a solution.
But then how do these apps let users know about the changes in the curriculum? The answer is Push Notifications. Through these push notifications, companies can also suggest offers and deals on study material, test series etc.
Millennials already have a bias for Digital Technology
Most of the children get acquainted with the functions and capabilities at a very early age, as a smartphone has now become a household thing. And because they are already familiar with the controls of a smartphone, it is easier for them to navigate through and understand the huge amount of content a learning app can provide on a single topic. Also, because the interface and user experience in smartphones is usually so captivating, children develop a liking to it, the first they lay hands on. Top mobile app developers understand this whole scenario and fabricate learning apps that have all the features that children and students find interesting.
In the past few years, mobile apps have made quite an impact on the education sector. It is just a matter of time that we will see mobile apps completely replacing textbooks and notebooks, as we already have many schools, educational institutions and even coaching, at present that have integrated their existing infrastructure with smart education tools assisted by mobile apps.Applications of Artificial Intelligence can also be seen in mobile apps as any of the learning apps are also equipped with features like performance tracking, topic-wise performance analysis,suggestions for improvement, personalized recommendations on study material etc.
