The COVID-19 has resulted in schools shut all across the country. Globally, over 1.2 billion children are out of the classroom. As a result, education has changed dramatically, with the distinctive rise of e-learning, whereby teaching is undertaken remotely and on digital platforms. The classroom will be supplemented by online coursework.
This way, students may be required to physically attend classes on fewer days and will be free to study at their own pace from home. This will also give them sufficient time to assimilate information. All the teachers will have to be trained for online teaching as well as classroom teaching.
This will go a long way to ensure that they are comfortable with technology and will be able to effortlessly switch between online and offline modes of teaching the curriculum. And above all, teachers will feel empowered to deliver a more impactful lecture than before. With information readily available just a click away, the role of a teacher from that of a ‘knowledge-giver’ will gradually move to one of a facilitator. This will help the teachers focus more effectively on teaching and course improvement.
Physical classrooms offer a high degree of interactivity with the teacher and also among students. Educators will have to bring in a lot of innovations to bring in the element of interactivity and collaboration in their e-learning modules.
Soon, educators will have to discard the ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach that is mostly followed in traditional classrooms and use technology to offer a learning experience that is uniquely suited to a child’s learning needs. The blended approach to learning, in turn, will help all types of students, since they will have the opportunity to engage with different types of content such as video, audio, presentations, thereby increasing the ability to personalize learning.
