There wouldn't be anything normal or ordinary in the post covid-19 world, at least for a year or two and we have begun to live with the new normal as we are gradually moving towards global unlock. Every industry has faced its challenges and thanks to technological advancements, these industries have coped up very well. One such industry is Education. Lets look in details how the entire education sector and what will be the education trends post covid 19:
Keeping social distancing in mind, Blended learning will become a trend, meaning the lectures will be conducted online using internet technology. However students will be required to attend classes physically too some days, keeping all security measures in mind. This integration will help them to study at their own pace while continuing with lectures.
Training staff for online session
Whatever new technology the institute adopts to impart lectures to the students, it is crucial for the teaching staff to first get themselves accustomed to the technology. Training of the staff is important to ensure that the staff is comfortable with technology and able to seamlessly switch between online and offline modes of teaching the curriculum, to keep the momentum of study going and to make sure the students are able to receive the knowledge fully.
Personalized learning using AI
With introduction of AI in online education system educators will be able to offer personalized education to the students unlike the traditional classroom lectures. AI will enable institutes to offer a learning experience that is uniquely suited to a child's learning needs. Students will get exposure to interactive learning and will have the opportunity to engage with different types of content such as video, audio, presentations, thereby increasing the ability to personalize learning.
Role of teachers will need to be redefined
A teacher is the one who teaches and imparts knowledge physically in the class. But online sessions will redefine the meaning of teacher as the information will be readily available to the students, the teacher will just have to be present to solve doubts and guide students to understand concepts better.
Technology integration into processes
The technology will not only be limited to imparting online education, but the entire education process will get digitalized. Activities such as paper-setting, evaluating and grading will get digitalized too, in order to fasten the process and increase efficiency.
Encouraging same level of physical interactivity as in physical class
Educators will have to introduce innovations to make online sessions more interactive to make them more engaging and interesting. It will be a challenge to introduce the same level enthusiasm and engagement as it is generally in physical classrooms. The institute has to make sure they are equipped with advance technology to maintain the flow.
