In the classroom, we can consider a lesson is successful—only if students can completely understand the material that the teachers deliver. Of course, that’s a thing, but that concept doesn’t go as easy as it says.

To do so, it takes a lot of preparations beforehand, so that the lesson can really speak directly to your students.

As much as how complicated the thing is, if you’ve got your know-how at the ready, your students will be able nail the lessons.

In this blog post, we will cover everything you need to know about how to make your students understand the lesson. Let’s get to know the tips below!

How to Make Your Students Understand the Lesson

1. Try different teaching methods

To make your lessons successful, it’s important to try different methods in teaching. The key is to find the one that your class loves, and use it regularly as your ultimate teaching method.

However, no matter which method that you will adopt, you should remember that teaching is not only about lecturing. You also have to include your students in the lessons.

Make sure to get your students hooked on your lesson, and try to be more interactive in the classroom—which is a pretty much relatable thing that we’ll discuss on the next point.

2. Incorporate interactive games

For your students, sitting at the desk and listening to you speaking all the time might be boring. But you can actually turn the way around with interactive games.

In fact, game-based learning actually benefits your students as well. According to the study by the Mathematics Education Research Journal, game-based learning motivates students to spend 93% of class time to do tasks.

That's why you should try to use games as a part of lesson they're currently learning, so they can understand the lesson better.

These days, you can find different platforms to create interactive games, and Assemblr EDU is one of the easiest ones. You can create simple games on the editor—using our available objects & tools, and enliven the game in the form of AR experience!

After your students finish the lesson, it’s important to do a quick review about what they have just learned. Try to ask them questions related to the lesson, so you can understand whether they have understood the lesson or not.

Again, to make it more fun, you can review the lesson in the form of an AR interactive quiz. To do so, Assemblr EDU might be the perfect tool to try.

When you teach, your students are the ones that can evaluate how you’re doing—since they’re directly involved with you. So, when you’re done teaching, it’s important to hear what your students think of you.

It doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to do it every day. However, make sure to ask your students about what they think of the lesson in routine—twice a month, for example.

If they give you some feedback, you should totally give it a listen and fix on what to improve on the next lessons. In the end, it’s not always about you—it’s about the students.

Making your students understand the lesson is always manageable—as long as you have a thorough preparation and a great tool in hand. Try using Assemblr EDU, and let your lessons come alive in the form of AR experiences!
