Teachers are the heart of education. Do you still remember a teacher who impacted your life? Maybe they took extra time to teach you how to read or encouraged you in your future career path. Throughout the course of their career, the average teacher will impact over 3,000 students. In fact, 88% of people claim their teachers played a significant positive role in their lives. October 5 is World Teacher’s Day, a day meant to celebrate teachers all around the world.

Connecting classrooms with online learning tools
Online learning changed the way that teachers (and students) approach the classroom. The past few years, teachers were forced to learn how to navigate a digital world, bringing their classroom to an online learning platform. Keeping students engaged in a digital classroom is challenging, but teachers persevered—all from their dining room table.
Even now that most schools have transitioned back to in-person classes, teachers are still using technology to keep their students connected and learning.
How technology has changed teaching
You might remember the days of projecting worksheets up on the whiteboard or tracing laminated sheets of paper. That’s a far cry from the classrooms of today. Instead of collecting homework, students can turn in their work online. Rather than marking up essays in red pen, teachers can leave feedback on a digital file and upload grades to an online hub. Not only is this better for the environment but it helps teachers stay organized.
A study found that 92% of teachers say the internet has had a major impact on their ability to access content, resources, and materials. Thanks to messaging apps, both teachers and students can interact with their peers to share important information and ask questions. With a laptop or tablet at their desk, students can navigate websites and browse the internet for deeper research. Students who have a real-world understanding of technology can take this knowledge with them into the professional world.
The internet has also given teachers more resources to help students. For example, teachers can teach students about the importance of internet safety and how to stop bullying. They can also utilize or recommend free mental health apps for students struggling with their mental health.
Taking technology outside of the classroom
Technology has also given students a way to take their school experience into their own hands. Now, learning can take place outside of the classroom—online, in their homes, even at coffee shops. Technology has improved the way that students learn by giving them access to:
- Unlimited information
- Personalized study sessions
- Easy collaboration with peers
- Transferrable study material
- Interactive studying
By allowing students to have these tools, teachers have more time to focus on making sure no student gets left behind.
