As blockchain weaves its way deeper into the world economy, more American universities are teaching the technology, offering more courses and expanding delivery methods. Kevin Werback, a professor and blockchain club mentor at the University of Pennsylvania, told Cointelegraph, “Even if they aren’t pursuing a career in the area, most students aren’t confident they can figure it out on their own. Blockchain is just so darn weird.” Weird it is, but employers are demanding more skilled Blockchain workers. Businesses, governments, hospitals and retailers are transforming operations using digital ledgers to share data, create copyrights, collect votes, and even track food, among myriad other uses.
Digital learning may be the latest and greatest trend in education. It has allowed for creative instructional practices, like flipped classrooms and individualized instruction. Many teachers report that their students are more engaged than ever. But do you know if digital learning is useful in helping your students learn? How can you tell? You assess it, and that should be easy. Schools are in the business of assessment. They routinely evaluate teacher efficacy and student learning, so assessing the quality and impact of digital learning should be easy. Are your digital learning assessment practices up to par? If not, what can you do to correct them? The simple act of observation can tell you a lot about the effectiveness of digital learning in your classroom.
The COVID-19 pandemic created unparalleled disruption in worldwide education systems. Schools shut their doors and moved lesson delivery online, forcing educators and students alike to adapt, often without the necessary processes and tools to do so.
A recent article in The New York Times reported the sudden switch from classroom to remote learning cleared the slate on academic gains for U.S. students while widening the racial and economic gaps. Thus, catching up when the fall session begins – which is already an annual issue, will become even more of a challenge for many.
EdTech has been at the forefront of a lot of education news recently with so many brilliant resources being made available to schools free-of-charge. But, make sure you look out for the evidence showing the resource’s value. Learn why in dansandhu’s blog. In the wake of coronavirus, the team here at Sparx worked tirelessly to create a maths learning solution that would help schools cope with the enormous challenge of remote teaching. In just six weeks, over 500 schools from 75 countries signed up to our Virtual Classroom. It’s just one example of how quickly schools have implemented technologies to support learning at home. And, importantly, this crisis has proven that it is personal, teacher-led learning that drives student engagement and success.
