In the course of learning, a lot of students do brilliantly and others are not so brilliant. Most times students are not able to understand or take interest in what is being taught and that is why they fail to fare well when they are tested on their knowledge. However, little do we realise that at times, it may not be the fault in the understanding of students but the teaching techniques of the teachers that the students are not able to cope with the matter that is taught to them. Here is a list of ways in which the techniques of teaching and teachers themselves influence the performance of students.
A lot of teachers may like to put up a strict demeanour and intimidate the students into learning. However, it should be understood that the ways that worked in the yesteryears do not work as well in the modern times. Students are turning rebellious and the best way to make them learn is by treating them like young adults. When they are shown logic and interest in learning they are bound to learn better.

Bookish learning is no longer interesting for students. This is one of the reasons why institutes are also taking the dynamic teaching approach and integrating technological systems in their teaching processes. The popularity of media and technology has created a generation of students that believe only in smart learning and the conventional style of learning no longer holds an appeal to them.
Examinations and tests have always been an important part of student life but as the times have changed, the teachers have shifted their focus towards an overall development of students. This is seen in the way in which the popularity of debates, presentations and group discussions has increased. These techniques not only asses the students’ abilities but also help develop them.
A unique teaching approach is what makes a smart student.
In the modern times, you and I have hardly any time to carry out activities in the conventional manner. Growing rate of competition adds to the need to do more within less amount of time. Multi-tasking has become a way of life for most of us. This is one of the reasons why students give a pass to the college learning and opt for online learning instead. There are a number of benefits that the online learning offers to the multi-tasker in you.
We are always cribbing about how 24 hours are not enough to have a day’s work done. With the help of online learning systems, it is now possible to contribute time to more productive purposes and give only the required time to learning.
A lot of online learning programs offer free programs or learning sessions that cost very little. This is beneficial to those who do not want to pay exorbitant fees and would like to get the desired learning at a subsidised cost.
The effort spent in conventional learning is way higher when compared to online learning. The travel time and the time spent at an institute add up to increased effort, this is one of the reasons why multi-taskers find it convenient to learn from wherever they wish to do so and that is why they opt for online learning.
When the conventional method of learning is chosen, you may learn only as much as you are taught at the institute, but with the online learning option, the world becomes your oyster and you can choose to learn as much in depth as you want to.
Online learning is becoming the trend of the modern times and people have started seeing a real shift from institute learning to online learning.
