Technology is invading the field of education at an ever-increasing rate. It is the era of notebooks and digital training in the classroom. Laptops are embraced because of the technological tools they offer combined with their portability. Not only are they becoming more popular for home use, but many schools are starting to incorporate them into their classrooms as well.
At IP Partners we are developers and providers of e-learning technology, so we consider that the use of technological devices such as laptops in the classroom is already essential at any educational stage. In this article, we will explain the advantages of using laptops in the classroom, and talk about the best Asus laptops for students in 2022.
Advantages of Classroom Learning with Laptops
1. Meet Today’s Needs
Since most kids today were exposed to mobile devices starting at an early age, computers have become a central part of their lives. Students rely on them for just about everything, and not allowing students to use a laptop in the classroom could place them at a disadvantage. Some students may not function and learn as well without the ability to look things up or take notes without a computer.
2. Enhanced Organizational Skills
As many students grow up with laptops, tablets and other mobile devices, they are already proficient at using all the devices’ features. They understand how to create computer files, significantly reducing the need for paper notebooks, documents and folders. The lack of paper makes it easier for students to stay organized, leading to a more efficient learning experience.
3. Better Than Writing
Since students are adept at using laptops and likely developed excellent typing skills at an early age, they can use laptops more efficiently than writing by hand. Many kids type more quickly than they write, which proves invaluable when taking notes in the classroom. Laptops also eliminate legibility issues — students do not have to make cross-outs or try to read hurried, indecipherable scribblings.
ASUS : Help Schools Navigate the BYOD Revolution
BYOT (Bring Your Own Technology) or BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is a fast-growing phenomenon set to revolutionize the way children are educated in Australia. Advantages for students include; increased engagement and ownership of the learning process, a more personalized learning experience, and a genuine ongoing collaboration between school and home environments.
Asus has edged a name for itself in the laptop world by catering to the niche market of gamers, students, and newbies. They have a product to suit almost any pocket and their laptops are known for being reliable and having excellent battery life, at least compared to other manufacturers in the same price range.
For example, the Asus ZenBook 14 is an excellent little Asus laptop to take with you to school after the class. Inside, the laptop has an Intel Core i3-1115G4 Processor, NVIDIA graphics, 8GB of RAM and 256GB SSD. So it can handle a lot for such a small laptop. Its chassis is sleek and attractive, and it has a very pleasing brushed silver finish on the exterior.
It has a few other exciting features, such as a NanoEdge, almost borderless display, NumberPad touchpad and a multitude of ports. It also has an impressive battery life — lasting up to 22 hours and taking under an hour to fully charge.
