This is an age of disruptive technologies such as Regenerative Medicine and Artificial Intelligence (AI). These cutting edge technologies are transforming the way we lead our lives. We humans no longer teach and learn things in the same old way. With the advent of the internet, knowledge and information have become all pervasive. Educational technology, especially e-learning, has made learning easier, enriching and entertaining. Early learning or pre-school learning refuses to be left behind in this technology race.

Educational Technology in pre-school education

The traditional chalk and talk and storytelling methods, though ruled the roost in the yesteryears, are distressingly inadequate in bringing about qualitative improvement among the children. Therefore, learning aids incorporating the audio and visual elements have fast become the norm in most of the educational institutions.

Research findings say that by bringing together the three activities – hearing, seeing and doing – people retain 90% of the things they learn. Therefore, the usage of audio-visual aids in learning, when combined with activity based teaching, show impressive results.

Enriching sensory abilities through sensory room

Infants, due to their inexperienced sensory organs, have poor ability to perceive this world. Therefore, they need a healthy and enriching ‘sensory diet’ to enable their sensory organs to fully mature.

At Peapods, educational technology is very much part of the teaching learning process. We have a sensory room with a wide variety of multisensory equipment, where they can take part in a plethora of activities to improve their sensorimotor abilities such as auditory, visual, olfactory, and tactile skills.

Tracking progress through eyLog

Our association with eyLog, an integrated online and mobile application, enabled us to deploy new and innovative methods of observing children’s progress. By using the tablet based software from eyLog, we easily capture the learning journey of a child in the form of audio, video and photographs in an electronic format and securely manage all the data. The parents, through a confidential username and password, can access the data to keep track of their child’s progress.

Children easily get attracted to educational technology due to its ability to make learning easy and interesting. The technology enabled learning environment created by Peapods has transformed learning from being a painful activity into an enjoyable and enriching journey.
