An ideal student is considered as a model who does well in his/her environment. In the context of language learning, the term model student refers to an ideal student who performs well in learning activities or coursework.
While talking about the role of a model student in learning, we can look back to our good old days and remember the so-called model student in the classroom who follow the norms strictly, participating and presenting quality work, topper in exams and much more than the expectation of a teacher. As learning through digital language lab is a kind of blended learning, we can find many such features there from the conventional classroom that is very helpful for the learners and teachers to make learning quite simple and trouble free.
“Model Student” is a superlative feature integrated in digital language labs to assist the teacher in giving a typical example for the students to follow in learning. A student who performs exceptionally well in class is usually set as the model student.
In digital language lab, teacher can set a student as model for the whole class and students can redo their assignments. This is a very supportive feature for the students to talk with the “model student” and can view his/her assignments onscreen. This option facilitates the teacher to set different students as model student and can remove the current model considering the quality of work one maintains.
