The Shift to Digital Classrooms

With every passing day it is becoming more and more obvious that the traditional classroom is changing just as fast as everything outside of it. The roles of the student and the teacher are going to change ver quickly over the next short while.

Some of the major changes that I see happening that are a direct result of technology and digital learning are the following:

  1. Large group instruction is going the way of the dodo bird. Interactive learning, mobile devices, differentiated learning are all going to drive student learning in our classrooms.
  2. As educators we are going to have to collect more data on our students. Having this information will allow us to program for their individual learning needs.
  3. Quiet seat work will take a backseat to collaborative, team based learning with the teacher acting as the facilitator and moderator.
  4. Students will bring in their learning resources from outside the school and create meaningful learning opportunities for themselves with the guidance of their teachers.
