Teaching is not what it used to be anymore, when my generation was still in school. All we needed back then were notebooks, pens and teachers. Things have changed radically since and the use of computers in school is the most natural thing now. But you know what? It is for the best, because the new technologies can help the teacher and the student.
Take FlipSnack Edu for example. Teachers can use it to prepare the lesson in advance: make a PDF, upload it to FlipSnack Edu, and then share it with the class. Just like that, the lesson is done and students can start learning. At school, students will have time to ask questions and do assignments: research, flipbook presentations, etc. When using the right tools, learning is fun, modern, and it doesn’t feel like a burden.
