The in-classroom learning in the past few decades have seen significant changes, but not like the one it saw a few months ago. Online learning and offline learning have different value propositions and levels of acceptance in our day to day life. But the year 2020, the scale of change has turned so huge that it brings the entire offline way of tuition under serious doubts. When entire academic institutions were resistant to change, the times have moved the most resistant teachers to deliver lectures online tells a lot about these times. And similar stigma which was held earlier, mainly of students learning everything 'digital' or 'technological' are now being appreciated and rewarded in many ways. What does this mean for our existing classrooms?
The design of existing classrooms (K12 Systems) is based on the antiquated means of book-based learning. They arrange pupils in rows and columns as a way to efficiently deliver a static way of learning courtesy to our past from the world over. Not everything about this structuring is bad, but the limited options to education are visible due to not embracing technology earlier phases of life.
But instead of being a rift, the way online learning embraced every academic class - can the reverse happen to prepare students for this rampantly shifting? Can old school designs be upgraded more than a projector screen by giving more personal control to children on what and how to learn, using current and upcoming technologies to build more cohesive delivery models?
