Pre-pandemic, education hadn’t changed much in 50 years. Using lessons from remote learning and a rapidly evolving workplace, big changes are coming. The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted traditional classroom learning experiences and brought about a rapid shift to remote learning. Despite technological and philosophical advances in education during the past 50 years, the classroom of today looks remarkably like the classroom of decades ago. Instead of card catalogs and thick encyclopedias, students can turn to the Internet and search engines. Their curiosity and demand for information can reach far beyond textbooks or physical resource materials. But the physical and instructive environment has remained largely unchanged—as have most schools’ capacities to develop skill-based student cohorts, responsive lesson plans, and emotional or mental support.
Learning should be a fundamental obligation for everyone, but the educational system alone is not equipped to tackle this challenge. Ultimately, the technology shift lays the foundation for the future of education. Schools, Teachers, Students, Parents, Governments and all other education stake holders must all be flexible to technology to avoid being victims of the uncertainty of life.
Technology flexibility, which is the technology characteristic that allows or enables adjustments and other changes to the business process. Technology flexibility has two dimensions, structural and process flexibility, encompassing both the actual technology application and the people and processes that support it. The flexibility of technology that supports business processes can greatly influence the organization's capacity for change. Existing technology can present opportunities for or barriers to business process flexibility through structural characteristics such as language, platform and design. Technology can also indirectly affect flexibility through the relationship between the technology maintenance organization and the business process owners, change request processing, and other response characteristics. These indirect effects reflect a more organizational perspective of flexibility.
Limited or no capital is a very huge obstacle to our community adopting to technology, Education stake holders must however take advantage of currently free platforms that will gradually help them earn some extra money as the entire community slowly adopts to technology. Will publish an article that will show a list of the current free platforms that enhance education and how schools, teachers, students and parents can benefit from such platforms.
