It is definitely an “inspiring teacher” who can make learning more effective than a trendy digital board.
The aid of digital boards could help a teacher save her time on drawing complicated diagrams and sometimes help them show demonstrations, but, even that requires an inspiring teacher to take it to students.
Inspiring and committed teachers are like MOM to each student, who feeds him love and supports him with sheer hope and trust. This takes the students to a greater height and uplift his confidence.
In a nut shell, I feel that,
Digital boards help to educate a child with latest technological topics. Whereas, Inspiring teacher nurtures a child and builds him as a complete HUMAN BEING (since learning is not just tech but also values inspired by teacher)

It is always the Inspiring Teacher who makes learning affective. Digital board is only a tool for learning. An Inspiring Teacher is ultimately the one who makes all the difference.

All kids are curious by default.
Now it’s a question of how class rooms use kids curiosity to teach various subjects. Following suggestions could help.
1. As we all know the influence of TV on kids where they learn. This shows that, use of multimedia at class rooms make their learning more effective.
Best would be to show well prepared video on the subject and then encourage discussion, question & answer session to make the learning complete.
2. Secondly, teachers must give attention and find out learning pattern for each kid as the same varies for e.g. some kids learn through reading, some through listening, some through writing, some through discussion etc., So group the kids based on their learning pattern and support their learning methods, which in effect addresses the whole class.

It is both the inspiring teacher and the Digital Board that helps a child to study. Any children or an adult for that matter, always remebers strongly any thing when it is seen visually. The teacher’s role comes here as the Digital Board can not by itself teach a child, how bright the child might be. It need the help of a teacher also.This is possible only in schools which have Digital Boards. The teacher’s role must be inspiring to the students and just not explaining what is in the book or on the board. The children will have a respect on the teacher and will just like the subject. But my strong view is that both plays an important role in a child who is going to school. This is possible only in schools which have Digital Boards. My views might be different. But this is what i think. Any parent may argue “what happens to the schools in villages which cannot provide a Digital Board?” My answer to this question is already said.

It’s both teacher and digital board.
Tradition with technology, is needed for the today’s children, is our view.

Surely the teacher can do that job.Anyway the machine couldn’t understand the feeling of children.

It is beyond all doubt that an inspiring teacher, an interested teacher imparts far more knowledge than any digital board in the world can.

In the class room learning makes the students effective by the inspiring teacher. Teacher, as our ancient gurukulas is referred as “Guru” who modifies a student’s future by their inspiring explanation, with practical methods and the way they keep the children with curious questions that arise in the mind of the young children. Though parents are guardians, students future starts from LKG to post graduation will be in the care of Teachers. So an inspiring teacher will be responsible in making learning effective in the class room.

Today’s kids are fast learners.I feel the teachers should give them lots of examples with related to topics,then some exercises which are given after the each chapter is over which are there in the text book.some points to think ,the lessons should be interactive,the child should be allowed to ask questions,then some exercise which they can do.grammar can be taught with examples,if the class is smart then on the basic things tr can ask questions then some topic related examples,then reading exercise for languages is very important that developes kids confidence and attention in the class.class control is very important ,teachers facial expressions are good enough to control a class.frequent map reading in Geography is reqired to make it interesting ,in free period the class should be engaged in some games,math or science related, lot of teaching aids are very important to use.as the child can remember through observation . Now a days lots of drawing and craft related materials are available.i feel these subjects are needed to make it very I the resting and creative. The child should be given lot of freedom to make it creative and different as the subjects are reallyimportantbut they find it boring as it s not done with fun.projects can be done more interesting manner, practical applications are very important about whatever they learn,teacher should make best efforts.

My preference is for a school teacher over virtual class room. And reason for this is -
(1) A teacher understands the need of each student ;such as where a child is lagging ,what is his + points ,what is his – points ,what can be done in a particular case etc. ;which is impossible in/for virtual class room.
(2) Though it has (virtual class) been heavily advertised that a child learns faster through visual effect (?) ;I am slightly confused ; bcos same thing happens when a teacher teaches in a classroom while a child learns the same through his/her eye and ofcourse with the help of his/her ears.
(3) Last but not the least ; have these people (gadget-walla) have any kind of data with respect to its ( ILL )effects on the eyes of our children . Bcos pupils in our eye has to adjust accordingly ;thus putting lots of strain & stress on the eyes which will not be the case with our age old teaching method .
I am of this opinion bcos all of us know what computer & idiot box has given many of us —– sweet spectacles ; that too not free of cost .
