Homework is today an integral part of the educational process; it makes learning easier and more effective. We have been involved with doing tasks since school years. The concept of home work began in the 19th century, which is notable due to significant changes in the education system. Great developments were associated with some changes in terms how frequently and what kind of homework was given by a tutor. This all affected education quality. Teachers generally considered the fulfillment of homework as a necessary type of training; it was a compulsory part of training. From that point of view, teaching can hardly move forward without home lessons.

The need for home teaching is determined by following factors:

  • During the in-school learning, a concentrated assimilation of the studied material takes place. Afterwards, the gained knowledge is forgotten. To prevent this forgetting, homework is needed;
  • Mastery of scientific concepts requires their repeated comprehension and assimilation;
  • The thoroughness and strength of the material assimilation being studied is achieved only when its memorization is dispersed;
  • Home learning is important for the development of students’ creative talents and abilities.

Homework was defined as one of forms of independent work. Attaching great importance to the ability of the student to learn independently. In order for an at-home task to perform functions set by a tutor, it should meet the following criteria:

  • it must be feasible;
  • it should not be large and complex;
  • it is not to be set at the beginning of training until students learn how to work independently.

Learning at home can contribute to the general studying process. One of important tasks the modern school is facing is to improve quality of teaching. Homework is a great tool but in the view of modern technological developments, a lot more could be done to enhance the traditional home work system. After all, modernity is all about improvements to existing standards. This is all the more important considering the fact that there are a lot more distractions these days for students and pupils than existed decades ago. Social media, games and other accoutrements in modern living contribute to these distractions.

Some schools have realize the need to keep their students engaged outside the classroom in a way to reinforce the learning they have obtained within the walls of the school. At EasiPREP, we have helped schools with the appropriate awareness to achieve their objective of keeping their students engaged outside the classroom through the introduction of educational tablets and functional school portals that allow students to carry out home works and assignments in electronic mode and through the internet and also engage in learning activities that are enjoyable and not seen as boring rigor by the students. For example, our educational portal solution offers features for online computer-based examination, computer-based examination preparation with bundled data-bank of past questions and answers, holiday assignments and many more of such features for student engagement beyond the classroom. Where gaming is required, educative learning games have been introduced which improved vocabulary, spelling skills, mathematical and quantitative reasoning skills.

All schools may look the same from the outside. State and Federal Ministries of Education may regulate schools with the same academic calendars. However, the smart schools continue to have ways of still getting their students ahead through their engagement beyond the classroom for longer-lasting educational impact.
