Gurgaon: Children of this age are obsessed with the digital devices and keeping that in mind a Gurgaon-based technology company recently launched a range of tablets with pre-bundled educational content.

The “EduOne Tablet” series by Amosta enables one to choose the content of current standard (out of first to tenth standards) and study for the whole year digitally, a company statement said.

“Now, students cannot only learn by reading  but also visualise new concepts and see how things work practically. It helps in expanding their imagination perimeter, IQ, depth of thinking and creativity,” said Ashish Kumar, founder, Amosta.

“As a launch proposition, Amosta is providing course content of current academic year on the tablet at an affordable price. Moreover, the content update for the next year course content is complimentary if someone purchases the EduOne Tablets in this academic year,” the statement added.

The devices allow students to self-learn at their own pace, individualise their learning environment to their liking and requirements, and enable development of inquisitiveness and exploration, besides lowering the number of textbooks students need to carry.

Moreover, in this digital age, tablets can allow students to grasp concepts quickly and permanently using audio -visual tools.

Priced between Rs. 5,000 to Rs. 7,000, “these tablets are available on various e-commerce platforms so that students from all over the nation can reap the benefits of this new learning platform,” the statement added.

With its global services hub in Hong Kong and manufacturing facility in Gurgaon, these educational devices are aimed to help students prepare better for their examinations.

“These EduOne tablets will complement the school education and let a student explore the digital world to experience different dimensions of learning,” the statement noted.(IANS)

  • To help students concentrate and learn more, teachers have found a new way of teaching them.
  • This technique of teaching outdoors will boost children’s mental capabilities to learn and remember.

Are your students unable to concentrate on their lessons in the classroom? Take them for outdoor learning sessions.

According to a study, a lesson in the lap of nature can significantly increase children’s attention level and boost their learning.

While adults exposed to parks, trees or wildlife have been known to experience benefits such as increased physical activity, stress reduction, rejuvenated attention and increased motivation, in children, even a view of greenery through a classroom window can have positive effects on their attention span, the researchers said.

The study showed that post an outdoor lesson, students were significantly more attentive and engaged with their schoolwork and were not overexcited or inattentive.

Moreover, the number of times the teacher had to redirect a student’s attention to their work was roughly halved immediately after an outdoor lesson.

“Our teachers were able to teach uninterrupted for almost twice as long at a time after the outdoor lesson and we saw the nature effect with our sceptical teacher as well,” said Ming Kuo, a scientist at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the US.

For the study, published in the journal Frontiers in Psychology, researchers tested their hypothesis in third graders (9-10 years old) in a school.

Over a 10-week period, an experienced teacher held one lesson a week outdoors and a similar lesson in her regular classroom and another, more sceptical teacher did the same. Their outdoor “classroom” was a grassy spot just outside the school, in view of a wooded area.

A previous research suggested that 15 minutes of self-paced exercise can also significantly improve a child’s mood, attention and memory. IANS
