At this point, you’ve probably heard enough of the recent changes brought about by the pandemic. While it’s important to discuss what is happening right now, we’ve had enough time to also think about the future. Specifically, many teachers are wondering:
What’s in store for the future of education?
As usual, these things are hard to predict and nobody has a definite answer. However, we can make at least some educated guesses about what needs to change from now on.
The biggest shift that we’re seeing is that online education has the potential to drop its “online” part and that more and more people will see it for what it is: simply education. The problem might stem from the fact that in general, we view traditional, teacher-centered education to be the best way to teach. Online learning is student-centered by default, having its own advantages and pitfalls.
