More and more teachers are aware that in order to truly teach students, they need to break the barriers of the brick and mortar classroom. That means finding opportunities to learn together with other educators and students. A global classroom allows students to connect with other students from all around the world.
There are three core aspects that define a personalized learning platform: each student must be able to define their own learning goals within it, receive recommendations based on their learning journey and have their progress clearly assessed so that they can see their progress. Let’s explore each of these aspects:
E-learning has many benefits, but incorporating this technology also means that your school needs to have a strong cybersecurity plan in place. With thorough planning, you can help to keep your students safe while enhancing the quality of their education through technology.
Introducing blended learning experiences in core subjects presents many opportunities over traditional print-heavy classrooms. Blended learning helps expand and customize learning opportunities to meet the needs of a broader group of students, making instruction more individualized.
Technology in a school can play a significant role to keep parents up to date and informed about their children’s education. Keeping parents in the loop of all school communications is essential to encourage students’ learning at home as well as in the classroom. Parents like to be informed about their child’s learning and this can be through a multitude of technology options.
There are many ways in which educators can use digital storytelling, whether it’s for assignments, classroom teaching, or as a method to create a more inclusive learning environment. The greatest benefit is enabling students to find their own voice, their own strengths and talents, and giving them a space to use them to their full capacity.
Good cybersecurity practices are as essential as knowing the safety protocols needed prior to crossing the street. As the future is leaning heavily toward the digital frontier, educators need to roll with the times in order to help their students prepare. Knowing a thing or two about cybersecurity do’s and don’ts can also help the educator in their own lives and in future classrooms they hold.
Online training is a convenient way for teachers to learn at their own pace, throughout the school year, and a way for them to expand their personal learning network. Ultimately, the final goal should be to provide teachers with relevant training that can really help them become better professionals, more confident in their work, and more motivated to make a difference.
Making e-learners interested in the topics discussed within courses depends on a lot of variables. But no matter how difficult it may be to achieve student motivation, the tips and tricks discussed here will certainly come in handy.
We need to make sure that when students finish school, they are equipped with the skills they need to thrive in the outside world, in what will be a highly technological workplace. Technical skills are important, but also soft skills that shape how students think and react to the world. The classroom is the training ground for them to be ready for the future.
