In a world where working from home has become the new norm, it’s time for other fundamental aspects of society to follow that same trend, one being education and teaching.
Well, given how deeply certain trends are buried into the public psyche, just attending online courses doesn’t cut it anymore, since it lacks a certain degree of interactivity that makes the learning process all the more efficient and enjoyable.
For example, it’s hard to emulate the feeling of drawing and writing down answers and formulas on a blackboard if no one has access to a blackboard, but that’s where technology comes into play.
The XP-PEN Deco Fun graphics tablets are excellent tools that will allow both students and teachers to enjoy a more interactive approach to the learning process, without the need for a blackboard, or dusty chalk.
