No matter what the grade level, everyone learns at a different pace nowadays, and that’s fine. However, teachers might not always have the capacity to teach the way they need to be. Teachers don’t have eyes on every angle of their classroom, at all times. Computer Vision comes in and eliminates the necessity of constantly panning your eyes throughout the room to monitor students’ behaviors at all times. It, however, allows for a simpler means of detecting, measuring, and responding to students, especially when it comes to perfecting engagement levels.
Teachers can observe whether a pupil is motivated or not during curriculum, without interrupting the rest of the class. Thanks to high functioning recording equipment and electronic devices, this task has become very effortless. Computer Vision can better analyze students’ overall grade averages by studying one’s behavioral patterns during the learning process. Once such mannerisms are collected, a better understanding is maintained.
Digital Teaching at Play
It’s safe to say that college students are no stranger to the online courses. They are taken out of convenience, price, and comfortability. Educators do stress, however, that there is a low interactivity rate amongst students who sign up for online classes. Online learning is even offered for younger grade levels, not necessarily in the classroom, but definitely for after school activities and homework assignments.
Teachers and Educators that utilize this tactic are able engage a little more inclusively with their students, especially those who aren’t as eager to speak up in class. Through assigning discussion board questions and 1-page term papers, students are able to interact with peers by commenting on papers, or responding to discussion board posts with questions or feedback.
For administrators and educators who fret about the credibility of offering online courses, computer vision can ultimately come to the rescue in providing an alternative mode of providing a ‘face-to-face’ interaction with peers and students alike. Many online course platforms allow educators to track what parts of the course are viewed and populated the most, during specific time frames.
Taking it to the Classroom
When it comes to teachers monitoring their students during a film day, curriculum projected onto a powerpoint presentation, or even when an exam is process, computer vision enables administrators to better monitor students. From the level of interest and attention made known, teachers can work to optimize syllabus content and provide more interactive course-work for their students.
Students and teachers get along best, when the quality of their student-to-teacher relationship is genuine. CV can assist in solidifying that relationship and confirming that students want to learn and teachers want to teach.
