Teaching strategies for modern classrooms

  As the world evolves, the need of new teaching methods is becoming more and more inevitable. Clearly, today’s students are no longer the same audience, as that of the traditional system of education. The current student generation is working on a different level, with different pace and completely altered approaches. Education as we know is no longer existent. The gap between modern students and teachers is not shrinking, but growing almost daily. Why? Because schools still base their teaching on outdated strategies. The social media and technology are developing and spreading quite fast and in result, the less focused students become on their education. It was only twenty years ago that tablets, laptops and iPhones did not even exist. Right now, students are disturbed by these devices almost all the time. This is why educators must try to understand how to best meet the needs of modern students and do that while taking their attention away from video games and social media. Change is now inevitable, especially since something as important as education of future leaders depends on it. This is why we have uncovered the most important teaching strategies that educators need to apply in their modern classrooms.

Modern classroom and outdated strategies

If you wish to teach a student something in today’s world, you have to be a modern teacher. Working with outdated strategies and principles on modern students is a failure to start with. As the world moves, so must the education. The main task of a teacher is to understand how their students think. Understanding the modern values and seeing what needs to be done in order to share some knowledge is the first and most important step in creating a good learning environment. Every teacher has been taught history of educating, most common teaching techniques and most successful strategies. However, as the world moves, so should we.

Modern students and ignorant educators

Being aware of the incompatibilities between the past educational systems and the ‘digital era’ of today, is highly important, but this means nothing if the teachers are ignorant towards changing. The main reason why teaching strategies have not adapted to the modern students yet is because the majority of educators simply remain ignorant of their environment. Of course, every teacher has gone through extensive education in order to best implement methods of teaching, but should they rely solely on the traditional strategies? The majority of educators have received their professional education and training years before the technology was so widespread, so it is clear that their profession is still in need of developing. After all, the main purpose of the educational system is to make students learn and this cannot be effectively accomplished if educators reject adaptation. Students did not have the recourses and access to information before like they do now and almost everything they learned came from their teachers. Right now, teachers also need to learn from their students. Why? Because as the world moves and education remains intact, students start seeing education as something they need to pass, not to learn. The amount of information is now so accessible to them, that they no longer see traditional learning teachers as their role-models.

The mindset of a modern teacher

Being a teacher in nowadays world is a difficult task, mostly because of the loss of the old techniques educators are so used to. As the mindset of students changes, so must that of educators. And not only that this does not sound easy, but it really is not. Changing the mindset to one of a modern teacher is a challenging job, but an extremely important one. The internet is all modern students can think about when it comes to information, so you cannot keep adapting your ‘defensive mode’ every time a student brings up different ideas from those of traditional learning. The internet is not going away. On the opposite, it will keep changing and developing faster and faster every day. This is why teachers need to adopt and learn accordingly. After all, there is no such profession whose learning ends with getting a degree.

3 tips for dealing with modern students

If you want to change your mindset to one of a modern teacher, you have to be more open minded. Being ready to adopt is the only way that you will fit in today’s educational system and make your students respect you.
  • Stop Focusing on Control
In the traditional learning setting, teachers were focusing on control. This is how they maintained their position of most intelligent in the classroom and a role-model for the students. Now students are different. Controlling them is no longer an option and if you want to make them listen and learn, you must try to influence them instead. Students need to feel good in the classroom. Having a modern teacher that promotes advanced, modern strategies is the only way to achieve this. If you manage to do that, you will have the influence you so need.
  • Grasp the Technology
Technology is something you should include in your classes. Instead of using solely books and other traditional methods, opt for some interesting video, an online presentation or other modern learning techniques. In this way, you will not only make learning easier for your students, but will include something they find very dear to their everyday learning. And we all know how important students’ interest is when it comes to successful teaching.
  • Guide Students to Important Content
Right now students have excessive access to information, but not all of it is true or relevant. Letting them know that the material you provide them with is filtered and relevant is highly important. Your main role in terms of technology is not to let students be misguided by it.


Learning to adopt and implement modern strategies in today’s education is not something that will come easily. Traditional teaching is so long gone, that teachers already struggle with finding the right way to reach their students. If you wish to do so, you must change in order to preserve the classroom’s functionality. The job of every teacher is not only to teach, but to learn too. Adapting to the new environment is the only way to preserve the teacher-student relationship. At the end, if that is gone because teachers refuse to adapt, how will the teachers to their main job – teach?   About the Author:

5 things students hate about online learning degrees

5 Common things students hate about online learning degrees
5 things students hate about online learning degrees  Attitudes toward online learning are generally positive, but this doesn’t mean the concept is perceived as perfect by everyone who has chosen to learn that way. As great as you may feel a course is, there’s always room for improvement. Many students share the same gripes about their online degrees. There’s a lot to love, but there’s also a lot they’d be eager to do without.
  1. Absent teachers

A professor who is notoriously hard to get a hold of can make students feel isolated. Many get the impression that they’ve been thrown to the wolves, expected to figure things out on their own. While online learners generally appreciate their autonomy, they need proper guidance in order to be able to effectively complete their assignments. Professors who only check in periodically aren’t able to provide that instruction, and students are forced to sit around with their questions unanswered. Notoriously absent teachers halt their students’ progress and have a detrimental effect on their motivation and studies. In the end, if students have to figure everything out by themselves, they don’t understand the point of paying for someone to act as a useless figurehead.
  1. Bad customer service

Students on campus have the option to meet with an advisor. Students online have a much harder time dealing with issues that require the assistance of an advisor, because the advisor doesn’t exist. So how do these students get their issues resolved? As it would turn out, many of them feel like they never do. Since many online education programs don’t offer counselling or formal customer service, students have no way to figure out what’s going on or see their problems solved.
  1. Infuriating group assignments

Many online schools use group assignments because they’re cost effective. They’re easier to manage and grade, and they promote teamwork. Since online courses have more lax acceptance criteria, a lot of students feel like their teammates don’t care about their work. Some students feel like they’re pulling everyone else’s weight, and because everyone is sitting somewhere else hiding behind their computer screen, slackers tend to get a free ride. Since lazy students aren’t held accountable, the diligent co-learners feel taken advantage of which is yet another motivation killer.
  1. Inefficient infrastructure

Some students find their experience to be very inconsistent across the online learning environment. What’s the chain of command? Who reports to who? How are technical issues resolved? Why are unresponsive instructors just as prevalent as great instructors? Students feel the structure of some online learning programs falls apart. Because everyone is working remotely and the material is spread around the Internet, they don’t see unity within the administration that shows them one hand knows what the other is doing.
  1. Bad design

Interfaces count for a lot, and students are quick to mention that. Students want their course to have great production value but at the same time be easy to navigate, read, and comprehend. In addition, students hope to receive a full experience that speaks to their personal learning styles. They want visuals, audio, and even videos to demonstrate the material. They want consistency between the material in the courses and the things that they’ll be tested on. Finally, they need access to current information that’s been modernised, instead of content pulled from dated text books and thrown onto the Internet. The majority of students actually report that their overall level of satisfaction with online learning is high. With some improvements, the favourable rating will continue to improve, drawing in new learners and boosting the rating averages even higher.     Author: Monique Craig is an avid blogger and self-learner who enjoys reading self-improvement literature and gaining more business-related experience.

Top personality characteristics of successful teachers

Top Personality Characteristics Of Successful Teachers
 Top personality characteristics of successful teachers   Successful students are really the ones who listen to their teachers and whose teachers never give up on them. Most of the teachers who have a successful career and a huge student following comes from the fact that they constantly try to motivate and encourage their students to perform better. They reach out to their students and make them feel welcome rather than feared. So, having said this here are a few habits of the most successful teachers, who bring positivity in the life of their students and as a whole, to the academic world.

Clear objectives and a positive attitude towards their students

Whether it is an individual or an entire organization, objectives are an integral part. Teachers with clear objectives mean they have formulated a well-organized plan or a framework through which they want to reach their destination. This serves as a clear roadmap for students and eventually helps them to become successful in their academia. Objectives also make you understand what you are going to achieve by the end of the course. You feel more involved and more learned if you know where you are going and how to reach there. Moreover, a good teacher will always display a positive attitude and send out positive vibrations all around him. It adds value to learning and boosts creativity, transforming the classroom into something interesting to look out for.

Successful teachers are consistent and reflective

Consistency is something that makes things easier for you. A consistent teacher follows the rules and don’t change them according to his mood. In this way, students can rely on you for keeping your word and being consistent with the ways assignments are submitted or generally, how the work is done. Also, there are some teachers who are stuck with their age old methods of teaching; now that is not consistent, but solely stubborn behavior. Reflection is what comes in here because that is how teachers reflect on their performance and change their methods accordingly.

They enjoy teaching and also have a good sense of humor

You can tell a teacher loves his work by listening to how he teaches. Such teachers are full of energy and thriving with spirit because they like to share their knowledge and are totally involved with their students. Even the most boring class comes to life with a good teacher. Moreover, being funny is what keeps the mood light and stress out of the class. So be the one hysterical teacher that every student admires.

They are adaptive to change and open to innovative classroom tools

There are two types of change – one is changing according to students’ needs and the other one is to change the physical structure of the classroom to give it a new feel. Move around the desks a bit and try to add something new, so that students don’t look outside the window all the time. Also, since it is the world of technology, don’t be hesitant to add technological tools to your academic curriculum. It might be possible that the students are already aware of it, but using it in the classroom might increase their interest towards the subject.     Author’s Bio: Edina Clark is an Academic Consultant who has been working in the same area for about 10 years.

Technology requirements for TESOL online courses

Technology Requirements for TESOL Online Courses
Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages,   Teaching English to foreigners who don’t speak it as a first language is increasingly gaining momentum around the world. Chinese and Indian parents are pushing for better quality English teachers to teach their kids. ESL or English as a Second Language, has become a sought after asset in the modern globalised economy. It comes as no surprise then, that there is a professional course aspiring teachers can take to prove their English proficiency and to then travel abroad to teach in countries with adequate demand. TESOL or Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages, is a professional organisation that helps such teachers kickstart their career. Although the organisation was founded in the United States, the course is offered online for anyone who wants to sign up. There are, of course, some basic requirements each candidate must meet before they can get started with the TESOL certification online. Here is what you need:
  • Professional Requirements
A frequently asked question is whether you need any prior experience teaching English to be able to enter the course. For an online certification, this is not the case. You will need an undergraduate degree with a 2:1 or international equivalent in any subject that could be considered relevant to teaching English. However, alternative qualifications will also be considered.
  • TESOL Focus Courses
Usually, TESOL courses consist of 150 hours of training and this can all be provided online. The course focuses on second language teaching and learning, grammar, pronunciation, discourse analysis, second language acquisition, classroom management, classroom research, classroom-based evaluation, second language curriculum development, research methods in language learning and research portfolio.
  • Technology in Education
The TESOL organisation has a well defined framework for the ways technology can be sued in education. The organisation believes that technology will never be fully sufficient to replace teachers altogether, but will in fact help teachers teach better and more effectively. The standards are outlined in the handbook and push for deep integration of technology into everyday classroom activities since it can help promote not just language skills but also tech savvy. The framework pushes for integration to ensure the teacher is sufficiently aided in the classroom and the students learn real-life skills. English must be used online and not just while reading or writing, as per the organization.
  • Technology Integration
Like with other parts of our lives, technology has the potential to transform the way we learn. Bloomberg recently reported on the need for coding lessons and how Chinese parents were preparing their kids for a future where coding and English language skills will be paramount. The need for tech in the classroom is evident from the way students have adopted consumer tech in their day to day activities. The TESOL organisation understands this need and has made attempts to equip teachers and candidates with the tools needed to deal with student demands in the modern classroom and help them develop the skills to the best of their ability. About the author: Sunny Popali is working for UNI-Prep Institute. UNI-Prep is an institute offering courses in TESOL teacher training, business and management. Courses are offered online and in-class.

21-st century teaching in Macedonian primary schools

21-st century teaching in Macedonian primary schools This interview is conveyed with Dobri Joveski, Primary school teacher for 16 years, who is a leading utilizer of the new technologies in education in the Republic of Macedonia When did you begin using the social media for educational purposes? The grounds for communication among all parties involved in the creation and participation in the education-upbringing process is the e-mail. I would like to emphasize its role, since apart from being a personal communication among two entities, it offers an opportunity to exchange information and to create among limitless number of users. The initial idea for communication and presentation of the educative content and the project activities was my participation in the creation of the blogs through www.bloger.com, ThinkQuest, E-twinning, Edmodo, Facebook, Skype, YouTube, Partners in learning, as well as educative and social portals that I use in my every day work. The social media in educative purposes has become our common practice. The necessity of following the news, has become part of the educative content for the teachers. This necessity lead to creating a new community of teachers that exchanges its good education practice in teaching through webinars. In the Republic of Macedonia, this type of education has been ongoing for two years and it comes as a result from the cooperation between Microsoft-Partners in learning and the good practices shared by the teachers in Croatia. What are your future plans in expanding the activities? Organizing of the webinars as a successful project activity will continue and it will be expanded with the participation of other interested teachers that are following the innovations in the education on a global level. If pre-conditions for this type of training are created, it can be used by the diaspora students, for the purpose of introducing the traditional and the cultural values of the entities that live in the Republic of Macedonia. Through the cooperation with the relevant institutions on a state level, primarily Ministry for Education and Science,  Ministry of Information Society and Administration, Directorate for education development and State education inspectorate, the future plans are in the direction of expanding the activities of webinar development in Macedonia, i.e. online trainings for professional training of the teachers. How do you experience the current rise of using the Internet in educational purposes? The utilization of the IT communication in the education of children is no longer a matter of choice, but a necessity. This is the way through which the children’s potential is stimulated, enabling them enriched intellectual development. The Internet offers limitless possibilities in gaining ideas to create the class content for all school subjects, being an unquenchable source of knowledge and teaching resources. With the correct directing and awareness of safe utilization, the Internet educational process is enriched with a valuable source of exploring and teaching, enabling communication on all levels, among all entities in the education-upbringing process. What would you like to recommend to your colleagues in the utilization of the interactive tools and the new technologies in education? If the teachers make an analysis and evaluation of their own work in education, they would conclude that the utilization of the information communication technologies and the interactive online tools is becoming a necessity and an advantage in the presenting of the educational content. In this way, the teaching and the tutoring is becoming a pleasure, a natural process, efficient and effective training of the teachers and the pupils in their future challenges.

The rising demand for teachers’ aids

 The rising demand for teachers' aidsA helping hand for teachers The image of Arnold Schwarzenegger yelling at children to “shut up” in the movie Kindergarten Cop may be what sticks in people’s heads when they envision optimal management of preschool children. The majority of teachers have probably wished they could employ such methods at one stage or another, but educational institutions might frown on it, and not being Arnold Schwarzenegger might reduce its effectiveness. Still, they are part of a profession that has long been acknowledged as one of the highest-pressure and under-appreciated around. Educating the children of a nation is of the utmost priority, yet that doesn’t make it any cheaper for schools to hire and maintain the staff necessary to do so. So, in the process of carrying out this sacred duty, teachers find themselves faced with a workload their numbers can barely manage. And so we get the rising importance of teachers’ aides. Teachers’ aides may have been around since the 1960’s, but the skill requirements have become more demanding along with its prominence. “Paraprofessional” is the term for those trained to aid professionals in various industries, and this includes assistants in education, health care and social welfare. Their services are essential in alleviating the strains of the professionals working in these industries, as well as providing organizations with a cost-effective means of increasing manpower.

Blended learning intro

Blended learning is a formal education program, where student learns at least in part of the curriculum through online delivery of content and instruction, with some element of student control over time, place, path, and/or pace. Face-to-face classroom methods are combined with computer-mediated activities, that offers opportunity for data collection and customization of instruction and assessment, as two major benefits of this approach. Schools with blended learning models may choose to reallocate resources to boost student achievement outcomes.The terms “blended”, “hybrid”, “technology-mediated instruction”, “web-enhanced instruction” or “mixed-mode instruction” are all used interchangeably in current research literature meaning the same.

Your classroom needs to go virtual

Your classroom needs to go virtual Do you want to equip your students with the skills they need to survive? Today the virtual world is upon us and virtual skills are essential to survival, so you should consider your classroom going virtual. To provide your students with the skills they will need to navigate today’s world. Their learning experiences in the classroom should mirror what they will encounter outside the classroom in the real world. How do you enable your students to experience what’s outside the classroom from inside the class itself? If you look at all the media, or even own a computer, you must realise that your students already live and work in a virtual future. One of the most hyped virtual gadgets is the immersive helmet. Even now we talk of the ‘Internet of Things’ and the ‘Immersive World’ as part of life. This is not in a far-distant future. You can lead your students to a successful life because your classroom can be this gateway to their future. Today students have access to new learning environments that help them progress and navigate the world through a virtual world. Virtual learning environments are essential because students relate to them and use them daily to socialise, learn and experience the world around them.
  • How?
  • When?
  • Where?
  • Who?
Features of virtual environments include ease of use, low relative cost and simple interface, aiding fast learning with short learning curve.

How can this be done?


Virtual worlds can be accessed through many devices. Computers of all varieties, tablets, phones – and any new device that comes along. Integration is vital in this digital world which benefits the cloud based data storage as the best in interaction for digital content.

Fast Learning

It is said that a picture is a thousand words, imagine the words of virtual modelling where it will even better clarify the picture. The comparative speed of learning takes information and processes it towards the perspective of the student. This visual information is the most natural way the brain absorbs information. Since we learn quickest through our senses, and the eye REM will feed the brain at the speed of light all visual examples is on the highest order of comprehension.


The affordability of virtual online courses factors on interest, amount content and implied recommendations of the curriculum. None the less, its will always be available at a fraction of the cost than having a real life education centre, books, travel. Increase affordability in terms of time and resources to teach students complex ideas.

Real world environments for real learning experiences

Education needs to meet virtual reality to provide a fully interactive experience. One that neither student nor teacher can have in a normal classroom. Virtual reality provides a range of learning experiences using different environments and experiences that can involve a computer programming language, logic, art, augmented reality. Military training, safe medical training, hazard waste training, simulated emergency protocol, all will add to the interpretive gains including foreign language learning/translations.

Novel experience

It is next to impossible to lose the attention span offered in Virtual Reality. A special degree of interaction between both instructor and student would include having the instructor offers his course in a state of the arts recordable form of presentation.   The instructor or the student taking or giving such a class can perform a series of functions such as mute, group, tags. They also access Web 2.0, perform import/export/downloads, convert, and do so all within a 3d environment. They can offer simulations, develop samples, hold discussions which are all valid experiences with visualisation material. Repetition and Reinforcement We as humans can often experience words to have multiple meanings with differences in interpretation. A simple sentence for example; “I am at home”, can mean that you are home, but it might also mean you could be back to the office, or in your most cosy chair, your childhood house, or even your most favourite restaurant.   With virtual, the visual will make any statement interpreted one way. Having that repeated visual presented will reinforce an idea or concept needed. Virtual will do exactly this. Multi-Senses There are seven senses, each which make up our ways to learn and describe. Use virtual and augmented reality to enhance or single out how we wish to present or define a concept.   It is our goal to use our multi-senses to sharpen our skills when interacting with Virtual Reality. Distance learning virtual reality can provide a dream which would otherwise be inaccessible for many.

 What are the benefits?

There are many advantages of having a virtual class. Firstly the cost of travelling. Getting to a normal learning situation generally means travelling to the learning destination, whether that be a classroom, laboratory, work experience site, car for driving or other learning experience. With virtual worlds, you simply log into your computer and walk in-world directly to the learning experience that is presented straight in front of you. Secondly, one of the major issues in a learning environment is keeping all students together learning at the same pace, despite their various learning needs and speeds. Thirdly, learning virtual reality now, can set students up to safely and privately handle controlled study cases. It has been used to prepare their mind to focus and delve into with complex matters quickly and effectively. Directly benefit the flexibility and independence of a student who might suffer with phobias or have learning difficulties. Remove that feeling where exclusion from peers are common in school situations. Whereas online class puts everyone on the same level of learning and gives people a chance to interact with others and feel part of a class environment which will also give the student more confidence within themselves. Today’s education processes require strict adherence to the syllabus. Key aspects of any subject are predefined and it is the exceptions of various schools and colleges to maintain this control of what and how class material is given, tested, retained. Virtual reality can be used to monitor this control.

About TVM

The Virtual Mob Limited (TVM) http://www.thevirtualmob.com, has been an ongoing integral part, in virtual world communities since 2006 and a part of the growth in all fields of educational and business operation. As formal learning environments are normally centred on classrooms, they are restricted in terms or real world experience within a learning opportunity. With virtual world learning these environmental restrictions can be reduced or even removed. A single location such as a classroom provides a single learning environment while a virtual environment can offer a plethora of environments with just the touch of a button. It is proven that recollection is reinforced and supported by a familiar environment. This is perhaps why, for example, language learning in a classroom allows for easy recall. However, a student who learns in a classroom struggles with using it outside of that room. This is because their experience centres on the classroom. Many recall cues are missing outside, such as learning to buy fruit in a market using a new language. So, what if the students could experience that lesson actually ‘in the market’? When they came to buy fruit, their recollection would be supported by their previous experience of buying fruit virtually. Repetition is one of the best tools for comprehension, as is making mistakes (which we will come onto later). Virtual worlds can provide safe learning situations, which can be repeated until the student is competent. Education and virtual reality meet to provide a fully interactive experience that neither student nor teacher can enter into in a normal classroom. With distance learning virtual reality can provide a dream which would otherwise be inaccessible for many. As the formal learning environment is normally centred on a classroom, the many restrictions of that environment are reduced or even removed. A single location environment provides a single learning experience. It is proven that recollection is reinforced and supported by a familiar environment. This is perhaps why, for example, language learning in a classroom allows for easy recall. However, if a student who has learned to buy fruit in a classroom using their new found language skills – then tries to buy fruit in a market, they will struggle. This is because their prior experience of this exchange has been in the classroom. Many of the recall cues are missing in the marketplace. So, what if they could experience that lesson actually ‘in the market’? When they came to buy fruit, their recollection would be supported by their previous experience of buying fruit. Repetition is one of the best tools for comprehension, as is making mistakes (which we will come onto later). Virtual worlds can provide these learning situations with no repercussions. Flexibility to learn at your own pace as we all know in life some learn things quicker than others , so will be less pressure on other peers and gives great opportunity for them to interact and feel part of class environment and also help them organise areas for course documents, assignments, class notes and other information can be readily categorised. Also having this information on the Internet can provide with a method for quickly updating and revising course content and giving the student extensive attention when they mostly require it without having to deal with any classroom disturbances. Where is the added value?    The cost off the online courses are much cheaper than college, weigh up all costs of traveling and course itself the time traveling in all weathers , where online course you can study your own pace and in comfort of your own home plus for many students security of their own environment.  But student will still get the same support, as they would in college setting, if not more as the tutor will be available online so they will be able to message and get response back. What makes it different?     TVM makes the friendly environment of talking and communicating with people. All over the world people are ready and willing to sharing their knowledge with others. This act alone has gained through the course building self-confidence and motivation. Who is it for?    This is for anyone that wishes to gain more knowledge and has a really passion for learning. Who would benefit?      Everyone and anyone who wishes to learn more and make their life mean something more and hopefully help them on their way to job they will love. Simple interaction TVM, its entire backend software, and various selected hardware such as “Plantonics” headgear was designed to make interaction useable. A quick download, run the executable, login and you are in. Menus react exactly in same manner as most video games, mouse, control buttons and or a heads up display that allows a student to walk through. The interaction can be modified to suit the most elementary child all the way to the most advanced user found. One might think of interaction being simple, but it’s a tool being useful. Next generation teaching now!! In 2014, nearly 75% (2.1 billion) of all internet users in the world (2.8 billion) live in the top 20 countries. The remaining 25% (0.7 billion) is distributed among the other 178 countries, each representing less than 1% of total users. With over 300 online colleges worldwide and thousands of various courses, having virtual courses would be the future of now. Most students, already used to online course and undoubtedly computer savvy, are all used to emerging technologies.  There is already a wide audience that want to not only teach, but be involved in creating content, learn, each with their own skill level. This insatiable degree of technology surpasses the age of classroom and teacher requiring the need to be immersed in a visual array of subjects and not just looking at flat charts or empty 2d graphics. What has happened so far? TVM has been very serious about the aspects of education. Virtually they manifested a way to offer education and with enticing ways to share. TVM built and tested several classrooms, auditoriums, meeting spaces and conference rooms for a variety organizations. The classrooms designed by TVM offers a series of ways to present and teach ideas. There are chalkboards, video presentations, working computer screens, video screens, music backgrounds, the import and export of magazines and books, scripted coded languages, sharable graphics such as art and photography, sounds and 3D models. A mix of different individuals with different backgrounds and diverse native tongues can all be in the same room and interact simultaneously. TVM offers a method with which instructors can better organise teaching materials using searchable inventories. They can record and reuse what they taught in the past. They have also created boards that will display course when and where in-world. TVM has used its virtual classroom as an instructing forum for group meetings within a virtual assembly, and members of TVM have attended and made presentations in forum. Subjects include demonstrations in graphic arts, photography, 3D model presentations, slide shows, and classroom situations including question and answer sessions, tests, grading and presentations. Online courses, apparatus such as 3D hardware, virtual suits and more have been tested and developed to augment additional functions.   Disabled and struggling have been taught in effective teaching conditions proved otherwise impossible. Your classroom needs to go virtual – today! Let it flourish inside an awaiting virtual reality world, so that learning is rewarding.   Authors:
