As schools and universities collectively agreed on remote education with the on-going pandemic. While many students feel unsure and unsafe to return to classrooms as the risk of infection is high and academicians were certainly not trained to be ready to adapt to online classroom management. With the sudden shift from physical classroom to virtual learning leaving some wondering post-pandemic online learning will continue to persist and how this has impacted education worldwide.
Most educational institutes were quick to react and switched to incorporating digital classroom solutions to create a well-maintained learning environment with remote learning. The long term school closures experienced due to the pandemic appears physical classroom management will take a backseat for a long duration.
Covid-19 forcing educational establishments to adopt remote learning has widened the educational gap with key reasons to list. Poor infrastructure with communities not having access to the internet and devices needed to access online learning. Curriculum that suits one-size-fits all developed and followed for a long time span causes imbalance with students that require one-on-one support. While students with disabilities were seemed to have been excluded to online modules as supportive materials were necessarily excluded. While to equip students with digital classroom solutions, digital infrastructure learning resources should be made available to access.
To offer classroom management solutions one should focus on investment to increase access to network, devices, and better technical developments to support schools and students to sustain and develop remote learning. While curriculum development is inclusive the key competencies must include managing, tracking, and developing learning modeling. To make this transition easy, remote learning must be nativagited with training and guidelines on how-to provide and promote tools urgently that solve the purpose.
The right resource will help you meet your goals while finding the right strategies, resources and mainly technology to quickly implement online classrooms that not only help students, faculty members but also find new transitional ways to connect with them. Bringing in face-to-face connections, engagement, assignments at a single hub will be convenient to get tools to help students grow, interact, and get them on the learning and growing path.
For those who have the right access to technology, research by shift disruptive learning shows students are able to learn faster, e-learning chuns in less time, and in comparison to traditional classrooms students learn at their own pace can go back to revisit learning materials and accelerate to choosing concepts. A senior executive at vice quoted in an article, “ In order to derive remote learning benefits the curriculum requires structure to go beyond physical classrooms experience through video capabilities, instead, collaborative tools and engagement techniques can be implemented to promote inclusion, personalization and intelligence.”
