The world of learning and education is moving with the times- and so it should. Digital transformation has invaded virtually every area of life and work- and the 21st century classrooms are taking a new shape. Teachers are increasingly becoming the facilitators of their student’s education and learning experience. Schools in this mobile age are moving away from rote learning towards valuable skill based wisdom.
It is not just about what you know, but rather how to know it and what are your planning to do with that data. By presenting students with deeper- level questions and instant access to almost infinite data and information, teachers are able to encourage children to become inquisitive problem solvers and innovators. In today’s global economy, it has become a basic requirement for those working in the education sector to have cross cultural skills and perspectives.
International post graduate programes in education would prepare students for all the challenges and opportunities ahead- providing an invaluable global understanding of education , access to jobs abroad and an international community of passionate educators from all four corners of the world. Online learning will hit the main stream as education systems leverage technology to increase access to educational opportunities and seek improved equity. Blended learning continuous to dramatically change instructional modals by providing real-time, data-driven instruction and opening up multiple pathways for students to learn. However, the biggest shift will be driven by education systems moving towards personalization of each student’s unique needs, interests, passions and competency- based pathways. While digital transformation comes with many benefits , it also presents schools with a challenge: how can we foster a love of books in an incresingly digital age?
To tackle the challenge, some schools have began rethinking their libraries as open spaces, or learning hubs conducive to rest, independent learning and creativity. Learning through Smart Boards is another step to progressive education. It provides the facility for learners to participate in the instructional process.
It gives the platform for students to understand the subject through writing, teaching and drawing. Every student has a facility to participate in the discussion via tablets and notebooks. Makes it easier and fun to learn more stuff smartely.
The technologies of tomorrow are already being tested in select classrooms today, laying the seeds for the future of how students could learn. With 2017 fast approaching, technology analysts have been busy prognosticating the top technology trends. A few of these technologies have already made head way into education and others are poised for mass distribution, with the promise of ground-shaking change in their wake.
