Over the last two decades, technology has changed the way teachers and students operate in the classroom. None moreso than the various Australian education software products out there.
Think about it. What we take for granted now, pretty much didn’t even exist in 1999. From the development of smart phones, through to schools adopting social media, there has never been a more interesting time for education in general.
Many Australian high schools and primary schools now require students to bring their own laptops. Teachers now communicate with parents and the community via email newsletters, blogs and extranets. Specific teacher and parent communication software has come to the forefront.
Smart boards have replaced projectors, and with that, specific education software to deliver video, audio and interactive learning has proliferated.
Once upon a time, you would call the school to say your child is unwell. Now with SMS, and phone apps, it takes a few clicks for a parent to notify the school administration and their children’s teachers of an absence.
There are a number of Australian education software products out in the market, helping transform how we learn and share our knowledge. Here are just five of them.
