The importance of audio-visual aids in education

Audio-visual aids are a key component in our education system, they encourage teaching in a way that makes the learning experience easier and more interesting. They are a great tool to explore knowledge, cultures and historic events in a way that could never be seen before, from first hand recordings or photographs, learners can be transported into new areas to explore and interact in ways they would be unable to do so, without the use of audio visual aids.

A recent report from Technologies and Innovative Research (JETIR) conducted by Dr. Parshuram Mishra as part of an advanced study in Education, explored the use of audio-visual materials and found that they make the learning experience more concrete and effective, as it gives learners the ability to see information in a more realistic and dynamic way.
