GOVERNMENT NEED TO UPGRADE INTERNET SERVICE IN SCHOOLS
Reliable, quick and capable internet is no longer an instructing and learning tool — it is not just what schools can utilize; it represents what schools are. Research brings about development and development require a resourceful platform to actualize meaningful content. The internet is the tool that is needed to improve and effect the research problem the society is facing.
Firstly, what is the internet? The internet is a connection of networks to share information using an internet protocol (IP). The importance of the internet cannot be overemphasized, it has made the world a global village connecting people to share ideas and resources, according to Tim Berners – Lee, a British renowned computer scientist. The internet infrastructure involves the set-up materials for communicating with the internet. These materials are collections of the software and hardware system component that can communicate over the internet protocols.
Most schools have limited educational resources, digital libraries and course contents because of the lack of internet services and internet infrastructures. Considering the technological trend in the society, different gadgets are springing up every day and requires large information per bit known as Bandwidth. For students to compete with the global world, using digital communication tools is paramount. The classroom has gone beyond the chalk board, pen board to smart instruction board. The archive system in schools has been digitized to keep valuable information for posterity.
High-limit bandwidth is basic to fundamental asset support and protection – updating subscription; overseeing applications; guaranteeing the substance management systems, learning management systems and Student Information Systems which all work together consistently; and settling vulnerabilities in the system.
Project ideas can be discussed, analysed, designed and implemented through different platforms via the internet and internet infrastructure. Dependable broadband is fundamental to instructors and teachers who need to have the capacity to take advantage of the accessible online assets and open doors for educator proficient advancement that are additionally customized and separated.
Smart home component can facilitate communication with each other via the cloud (internet). Students can use this smart home component even in schools to improve learning. These smart home components are iBeacon, smoke sensors, e-textbooks, smartphones, robotics for homes and remote presence, surveillance security camera, Wi-Fi – sensor, locks which can be used for entrance and exit classroom doors, 3D laser printers and computers, etc. When a classroom is equipped with such facilities, students become creative, smart and can adapt easily to the latest trends in sciences, technology, engineering and even art.
Government should make these facilities available to the reach of students. More focus on improving the educational content should be prioritized. Private schools are actually leading with the provision of modern technological equipment to improving learning but at a very high cost that the children of the poor in the society cannot afford.
According to research done by UNESCO the impact of upgrading the modern infrastructures in schools are listed below:
An audit of the latest writing shows that speculations to improve school framework has impacts on the instructive quality at any rate in the accompanying three measurements:
- Participation and consummation of academic cycles:- As indicated by UNESCO, the school drop-out rate in Latin America is 17%, and more noteworthy in country zones. A few examinations have discovered that the physical state of school structures decidedly influence school fulfillment and cycle finishing rates and builds enlistment. For instance, in Peru, the World Bank found that interests in school offices had a critical beneficial outcome on understudies’ participation rates.
- Educator Motivation:- Proof in Bangladesh, Ecuador, India, Indonesia, Peru, and Uganda demonstrates that educators in schools with great foundation have, by and large, 10% less non-appearance than instructors in schools with inadequate framework. Actually, the investigation found that foundations had a more prominent impact diminishing truancy than educator compensations or the impact of the regulatory resilience for nonappearances.
- Learning results:- Studies completed in the US, for example, the one led by 21st Century School Store in 2010, discovered positive outcomes which are factually critical between school foundation and government-sanctioned tests to quantify learning forms in numerous pieces of the nation. With lower understudy financial levels, the outcomes were higher.
In conclusion, design thinking and educational research to solve societal problems can be enhanced and effective if there is compliance for both public (Government) and private schools.
