e-Pedagogy is a concept to which most teachers are still resistant
When we look at the implementation of personalised learning in our schools, one thing becomes crystal clear – there are far too many challenges in the path of implementing digital teaching techniques in our classrooms.
Everybody is trying to find their own unique solution for personalised learning. Some of these solutions include teaching concepts like flip classroom and inverted classroom. Attempt is also being made to ensure that every child studies at his/her own pace with his/her own device.
In order to gain a better insight into the present scenario in education we need to discover the answers to few important questions.
The first question is – with personalised learning will our schools look any different from how they look today? The second question is – What are the ways by which teachers can bring about the much needed change in the way they teach and in the way students learn? The third question is – Will the teaching-learning process change by itself ? After all, e-Pedagogy is a term to which most teachers are still resistant, so how can they be vehicles for creation of a personalised learning atmosphere at the institutions.
What role does ICT really play in the concept of personalised learning and how effective can it be as a tool to ensuring that you have a perfect learning environment at schools. We also need to ask ourselves about the best ways of transforming learning environment at schools?
It is the quest to find the right answers to this questions that will enable us to see the light at the end of the tunnel and hopefully a better system of education will come into being.
