Multimedia Learning For Private Tutoring

Written by I Teach UK Private Tutors on December 12th, 2012. Posted in Private Tuition News

Within our current education system in Wigan and Greater Manchester area, a growing number of schools and colleges are now using multimedia tools to teach students within the classroom. Some teachers believe that multimedia applications help to increase the levels of concentration of the student and make the learning process more fun and interesting. With the use of multimedia learning resources intellectual discussions can develop and facilitate a more open platform for knowledge to be shared amongst students. Ideas and opinions can be exchanged in a more informative learning environment. Teachers can also participate in these discussions and provide valuable advice to students on a particular topic or assignment.

Another relatively new multimedia resource being adopted by Teachers is online educational videos. These are proving to be a great help to teachers allowing them to interpret a particularly tricky subject in sound and pictures rather than the traditional text book recitals.

What Are Multimedia Resources ?

Interactive multimedia tutor resources weaves five basic types of media into the tutoring learning environment: text, video, sound, graphics and animation. Multimedia tutoring resources simply combines these elements into a single powerful tool, especially in the hands of I Teach UK tutors and students. Since the method of learning is primarily interactive rather than linear, students or tutors can decide what topic to investigate next. For example, a student does not start on the first page of a text book or any other linear document and read to the end in one sitting. Multimedia learning is more like constructing an interactive spider’s web, with one topic linked to another, allowing choices in the students path to learning.

The multimedia technologies that have had the greatest impact in private tutoring are those that include the existing curriculum taught in schools, allowing both immediate enhancement and encouraging further curriculum development. For example, the internet serves as an endless storage of information that individual learners can search for subject matter content that specifically fits their learning agendas. Multimedia applications for computers have been developed for single computing platforms such as the PC, Apple Mac and games machines in order to have a single point to access multiple learning paths allowing for more focussed learning.

Times Are Changing in Maths Tuition

There was a time when the times tables were learned through repetition and memory. When larger numbers were thrown in to the mix, it was time to learn long multiplication. These days, new techniques have arisen such as the grid method. This technique is so far removed from traditional long multiplication, that it is almost impossible for parents to assist their child with the learning of maths. At times like this it is vital that parents find a quality study centre that is up to date with the latest techniques to assist their child by offering maths tuition.
