Crafting a compelling digital story

E-learning, Teachers

Teachers will oftentimes start delivering their lessons using stories as frameworks. Stories have always perked our minds and caught our interest, because they allow us to create an emotional connection. We always have that story that gives us an “aww” feeling, that story that makes us feel all sorts of emotions, whether they’re positive or negative emotion. Digital storytelling is another step in storytelling.

Helping students in need

E-learning, Gamification, Students, Teachers

Here we are in the e-learning age where students are becoming self-engaged learners and teachers are maximizing whatever digital resources there are for teaching. There are students however, who seem to have difficulty in school – whether it is difficulty managing school tasks, dealing with toxic deadlines, and other kinds of typical student blues. These students are very much eager to learn, but need a lot of proper guidance and monitoring to keep track of their progress.

How to deal with students resistant to e-learning

E-learning, Gamification, Students, Teachers

We are in the realm of 21st century learning, where most students are digital natives and expect their teachers to be the same and deliver all class content online, through an interactive e-learning platform. But let’s flip the script. Suppose teachers are the digital natives, and students are the digital immigrants? I’ve seen students like this, students that question the use and existence of a learning management system, because they prefer seeing lessons in ink rather than on screens. Their teachers are the ones bugging these students to make the switch to e-learning.

And while there are students and teachers who already know how LMSs works, there are still a handful of people new to the digital world that need some time getting used to using such a platform.

A gamified social learning experience

E-learning, Gamification, Students, Teachers

A gamified social learning experience is something quite new. Yes, there is gamification and, yes there is social learning. But, mix those two up and what do you get? Learning, with a social media context, delivered in a gamified experience. Sounds interesting right? It’s not just a plus for students because content delivery is more engaging, but also a plus for the teachers because they see inter-class interactions and collaboration.

Are your students self-directed learners? ​

Students, Teachers

Here we are in the 21st century where students are becoming academically independent. They can learn on their own, oftentimes without the teacher’s intervention and most of the time they look for answers on their own. However, not all students are self-directed learners. There are still students stuck on the traditional chalk-and-board, teacher-oriented classroom setup, and there are students that are somewhere in the middle.

Bridging the gap between traditional teachers and modern students

Students, Teachers

Edtech isn’t a magic bullet, but an instrument. It depends on how and why it is used. While there is a gap between teaching methods and students’ real needs, there’s always a chance to meet halfway if aspects such as school culture and upgrading learning materials are taken into consideration.

Teachers

We’re in the digital age where practically almost all students are digital natives and almost every student owns a device that they usually bring to class. So why not encourage students to use their devices as tools for learning? BYOD classroom setups are very common nowadays, but there are a few aspects to consider before implementing them.
