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.

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.
