Enhance Academic Instruction through Visual Aids

I once taught in middle school and the training and experience were both challenging and interesting. Somehow, the short - lived experience taught me significant learning: student motivation and instructional aid.

We can find different ways to help our students learn faster and better and while lecture  can be the most commonly used medium, it can be overused and less effective. Thus,we, teachers,  can find ways to be creative in their teaching.

The use of technology like computer, overhead projector, multi - media players and   waterproof cameras   are among the media that teachers can use. But, if school resources don't allow high - end technology, teachers can recycle ordinary materials like calendars for posters, cut pictures for mosaic or field trips can be equally  effective.

Teaching is indeed an art and commitment and when teachers are personally motivated to help their students better, they can make a big difference.
