25 Jun The next generation of classrooms in the digital era
How to adapt our learning environments!
With our new tech era, Parents and teachers are facing the challenge to transition from a traditional classroom to a digital one.
The way that we introduce technology into our learning spaces, is going to create a big impact in the future generations. This goes far beyond computers, it also includes the physical environment that the children are in during the learning process.
The term Collaborative learning has been making a buzz for the past couple of years now, and many companies are now moving to this trend. Effective classrooms are more about creating dynamic learning environments that are filled with pieces of different technology, new form of (digital) literacies; and for the majority of students, it is way more convenient and enjoyable to use compared to the traditional reading handbooks.

With all this in mind, it is very important to set boundaries and maintain a healthy balance between the use of devices and one-on-one interaction.
Here are 3 helpful pieces of advice on how to transition from Traditional to Digital learning:
Create a Mobile Learning and Online Community
This is becoming so popular and is an ongoing practice for many, this expands the boundaries of the classrooms. E-textbooks, online quizzes, as well as community group where they can interact or reach for help if needed – especially if outside of school.
