Transform schools by new learning methods

Today, many schools are adopting novel teaching-learning practices. Technology is bringing reforms to cater to individual needs and prepare students for the future. Innovations and advanced learning methodologies are being inculcated to refine and transform the teaching and learning experience to skill acquisition.
As per a global survey, 90% of children in low-income countries, 50% in middle-income countries, and 30% in high-income countries fail to master basic secondary-level skills. Cross-country differences in access to remote learning is also staggered, as less than 25% of low-income countries were providing remote learning opportunities as compared to around 90% of high-income countries. Amid the pandemic, digitalisation has transformed learning patterns and educators need to search solutions to revolutionise the one-size-fits-all classroom learning approach.
A blended learning model provides a solution to the issue of innovating education. It conglomerates the best of online and offline worlds to create tailored learning adventure for students, teachers, schools, and universities. This change can be propelled along the following lines:
Modern technology helps
Innovations by artificial intelligence, machine learning, and robotics have accommodated the needs of collaborative and spaced learning even after reopening of schools. Classrooms are no longer only referred to as a room in a school/university and learning is no longer confined to lectures from teachers present physically in front of students. Rather, it has shifted to online classrooms imparted by digitally empowered educators through teaching methods like explainer videos to make students understand the concept with gamified tools.
Among other novel learning models, active learning has become an acquired trend during the digital transformation, making students self-learners who opt for learning styles that suit their specific needs. A visual, auditory, and kinesthetic (VAK) learning approach helps students explore their potential by visualising, hearing, and through feelings.
Evolving student-teacher relationship
The relationship between teachers and students has helped students by leading to an uninterrupted learning process. Teachers have transitioned to mentors and guides to innovate customised learning opportunities for each student. It also has brought the learning community on a common platform engaging students, parents, and educators in new ways using technological advancements.
Also, increased personalised interactions between educators and students has enabled them to craft their learning journeys at their own pace based on their skills and interest.
Powering up schools
Deploying education technology effectively helps prevent technology from becoming a costly affair, powering up schools, and improving learning by supporting crucial interactions. It also scales up quality education, facilitating global instructions through computer adapted learning or live classes and thereby, expanding opportunities for student engagement through cross-over learning.
Parent-teacher relationship
Children learn and thrive when parents have an active role in the process of education. Technology has enabled teachers and parents to interact and discuss children’s progress more often than in earlier teaching systems. It has enabled easy-to-understand information communicated through digital mechanism on an everyday basis as it has adapted to parents’ schedules. An important insight to transform schools via new learning methods is to challenge the mindset of those who believe that families do not influence a child’s learning growth.
Thus, transformation in schools will only take place when modern children learn to imbibe and utilise the technological tools available in today’s digitally rich world. The impact of education is not limited to contextual knowledge and competencies tested based on school reports. Rather, it draws upon the school’s vision for innovation for student’s learning. Schools need to look beyond the walls of their schools to discover real transformation and adopt new learning strategies.
