After we come out of this Covid-19 Pandemic, the world wouldn’t be the same anymore. It will have its fair share of both; upsides and downsides. In this blog, Tecfuturenow talks about how this Covid-19 lockdown will change education establishments like schools, colleges and universities in India. After the Coronavirus crisis is over, every school and college intend to bring students back to the classroom.
In the United States where vaccinations have almost completed its course, schools and colleges are expected to reopen for in-person instruction. In contrast to this, India still has a long way to see physical learning.
Although, we can expect a number of developments in Indian education scenario as well after this pandemic gets over for good. Let’s see what they might be.
Post-Pandemic Schools: What May Change
While we are analzying the changes that we might see in the post-pandemic world, these changes also depend on various factors like readiness of respective governments to accept technology, acceptance by educators to introduce technology in classrooms and availability of cost-effective technology providers.
This pandemic created a demand and increase acceptability among educators for Virtual Learning. Though the technology has been among us for a long time, it took a lockdown to force it down among the educators. The lockdown has reduced apprehension among teachers and students and left the educational establishments with no other option than this to continue their academic activities.
Even in the post-pandemic world, we will observe many higher education institutes offering Virtual Learning programs for a regular degree. We will also witness many learners opting for full-time virtual learning, now experiencing that it is very much viable and possible.
Hybrid Learning Classrooms
Hybrid Learning Methods will also be on a rise in a post-covid world. It also provides an opportunity to students who wish to learn while opting for vocational options. Students can log into learning early in the morning and have the entire day to work or learn something else.
In the United States, many schools are already working out Virtual Learning plans for students who wish to learn virtually.
Advancement in Education Technology
For the classroom learning, we may even experience a rise in adaption of education technology in classroom. Even before the pandemic, signs of digitization of classrooms have already been seen. This lockdown has only accelerated the timeline.
Educators will be introducing different types of Education Technology including Interactive Board, Interactive Display, Digital Learning Software, Tablet Learning and others for their instructional practices. With the interoperability, teachers can prepare notes beforehand and just share them with students in PDF or Doc formats.
