PRACTICAL GUIDE TO TRANSFORM FACE-TO-FACE TEACHING TO EFFECTIVE E-LEARNING
Gemma has over 20 years of experience in education and training to provide learning-related consultation and design to develop effective e-learning solutions for clients from institutes of higher learning, government agencies and corporate. As a firm believer in the use of tech to support pedagogy, she also explores the affordances of tools in creating a world of abundant learning possibilities.
WHAT THIS SESSION COVERS
In the months that saw lockdown and quarantines across the globe due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we saw an explosive boom in the digital learning world. More than 1.2 billion children are out of the classroom, and almost the entire workforce around the globe are forced to stay at home, which immediately surged the demand for curriculums to be moved online, and in Singapore throughout the Circuit Breaker, we work from home (WFH). As a result, education has changed dramatically, with the distinctive rise of e-learning, whereby teaching is undertaken remotely and on digital platforms not just for students, but also for employees that wish to adapt to this new digital trend.
Design thinking is the natural solution to most challenges that require change, but there are hundreds of methods, each promoted by its own followers. This is where Edukata® comes in. Designed in Finland, and refined and tested across Europe in thousands of classrooms and schools, Edukata is the model of design thinking that draws from the Nordic tradition of participatory design, having all stakeholders truly participate in and influence the process. Through LifeLearn Platform, Edukata's pedagogy is the future of engaging learning, by seamlessly combining microlearning with longer-term learning goals and bringing together the needs of the educator and the learner. LifeLearn creates learning communities around topics and can be utilised both in eLearning and blended learning. While it can be used as a mobile tool for learners and a powerful platform for the course providers, it can also deliver a wholly new ecosystem of skills development and continuous learning.
Following this new global digital phenomenon, individuals learn to become agile, adapting to what is potentially a "new normal". While some believe that the unplanned and rapid move to digital learning may result in poor user experience with little sustainability due to lack of preparation or unreliable internet connection, we believe that a new hybrid model of education may soon emerge with significant benefits to all walks of life, and what better period to prepare yourself than today.
