As the global pandemic continues to disrupt the education system, educators find themselves working with students via online ed-tech platforms. This has increased the need for digital educational content and adaptable systems for both effective teaching and learning. If anything, the pandemic has taught us the importance of reimagining the human connection and interaction to facilitate seamless learning.
Many startups and publishers are already making it their mission to support young readers and are doing even more to transform the pedagogical norms while assisting schools and families in light of the pandemic.
This has opened up a new window for the teachers to reinvent the traditional in-person lecturing format into a more interactive process of regular feedback and assistance to ensure a more agile approach to the methods of schooling.
What this means for the students is, they are now being exposed to more fun and engaging learning experience. Gone are the days when students need to carry a bag full of books to their school every day and stack their bedrooms with piles of reading materials. Integrating new content in the form of eBooks into the classroom and at home teaching makes learning a fun new experience. Now that students are turning to more unconventional ways of learning, they have more opportunity with digital content to actively participate in the learning process.
With eBooks entering the educational domain, one gadget, be it a PC or a mobile device has become adequate to incorporate an entire library of fiction, non-fiction, and textbooks. With technology being so omnipresent and easy to adopt by children of this generation, eBooks and audiobooks can be introduced to students of all ages. The use of device-based learning not only improves the writing skills and the gravity of students' research but also increases students' interest in learning and ownership of the learning process. Though online learning is still in a state of experiment to find a balanced and appropriate approach for each segment of students, it presents us with a unique opportunity to provide a more customized learning experience. A powerful learning framework should guarantee that students are actively engaged in the learning process.
The extended delay of reopening educational institutions shows increasing acceptance of online education platforms and newer online-based educational system by educators, parents and students alike. The increased involvement of local startups and publishers in enabling easy access to digital content and eBooks has ushered in an educational transformation that allows students to learn more actively and effectively.
