In today’s heavily technologized world, pedagogy and technology go hand in hand. The Covid-19 pandemic has urged educators worldwide to embrace technology as many of their classes shifted to a fully remote or hybrid environment.
Naturally, this posed some challenges for many teachers, especially those who weren’t used to using edtech tools such as a learning management system (LMS) or a video conferencing platform to deliver educational content. The need to swiftly incorporate technology in the classroom might have partially overshadowed another essential aspect of teaching — pedagogy, especially among less tech-savvy teachers who needed more time for this.
Yet, pedagogy remains at the core of any teaching activity, being the fuel for success in education. At the same time, technology is a vehicle for innovation, effective learning, and student empowerment. It’s the key to ensuring constant access to classes, at any time, from anywhere, and offering students a personalized learning experience.
