Why Digital Learning is Reshaping Education – The Tech Edvocate

Technology has changed just about every field, including education. Digital learning is reshaping education in unprecedented ways. The ways in which students learn are changing rapidly thanks to technology, and both students and teachers will benefit from it.

There are several specific changes that we can expect to see as digital learning takes over education. For one, the way teachers present information and how students work with that information has changed. Students are asked to be more hands-on and collaborative than ever before. There are also new skills that students must learn, such as digital literacy.

The Flipped Classroom

The traditional model of teachers lecturing in the classroom and students completing practice and homework on their own is changing. Instead, students are learning on their own and using the classroom as a place to dig more deeply into what they’ve learned. This model, known as the flipped classroom, is gaining popularity thanks to the rise of EdTech.

How does the flipped classroom work? Students watch lecture videos or complete readings at home. The following day in class, the teacher clarifies anything students didn’t understand. Students then work with the information to answer questions, complete projects, and do other activities that used to be reserved for homework.

The flipped classroom provides benefits for students and teachers alike. Teachers spend more time helping students with the content they don’t understand. This means more one-on-one help for students and less time listening to boring lectures in class.

Knowledge is everywhere. In a mobile phone, a fitness tracker and our brains. Not a science fiction film but the learning theory of connectivism.

Recently over a coffee a friend of mine proclaimed: «Did you know that 15% of Beatles hits had weather in their title?».

«No», I and another friend responded. Now, this was a challenge laid down to us Beatles fans. Right, so obviously we have ‘Here Comes the Sun’, ‘Good Day’s Sunshine’. Hmmmm, but that’s nowhere near 15%. Leave it with us and we’ll come back to you. The debate continued in a WhatsApp group.

To spoil the fun I Googled «Beatles songs weather» which sent me directly to a Telegraph story reporting the research findings of pop music referencing weather. The key point here is referencing the weather in any part of the song (not the title) and it’s actually 16% of Beatles songs. In the…
