The pandemic showed us that online learning works, but we can do better. Creating an interactive learning environment will help teachers build engaging classes, leading to more learning opportunities for their students, no matter where they are.
Real teacher problems require real solutions and significant changes. One of these changes is implementing edtech that decreases their heavy workload and allows teachers to focus on what is truly important, especially their work-life balance and wellbeing.
While learning is a serious matter, that doesn’t mean that your teaching has to follow the traditional path. Here are five ways in which edtech helps teachers mix education with entertainment for a more enjoyable learning experience:
Edtech has great potential of personalizing education. As long as it’s used to complement the physical classroom, I’m confident they will continue to be a huge part of students’ lives long after the pandemic will have become just a collective memory.
Micro learning has a place in all types of learning environments and is suitable for all ages. So let’s explore a few different ways micro learning can ensure students’ attainment and engagement remain high when studying online.
The Covid-19 pandemic has brought along another type of pandemic: digital fatigue. Everyone working in an online learning environment can be affected by it, and teachers in Higher Education make no exception. So here are a few tips for dealing with with digital fatigue:
Edtech can be used to streamline processes for teachers or school management and provide a way of offering a more personalized learning process to support each student, no matter their level, ability, or location.

Before Covid-19, HE institutions were dipping their toes into the waters of online learning, but only as a way to support the main classroom experience. It’s now time to hold online learning to the same standards as on-campus courses by prioritizing digital strategies and providing complete learning experiences to all students.
The online learning environment complements the traditional classroom very well. I believe the integration of edtech in education will be further accelerated, even after the crisis will be over, and digital learning will eventually be perceived as an integral component of education.
