Higher Education Review|April 2021
I Learning in today’s world has evolved greatly. Digital technology has revolutionized the approach to learning for students and teachers alike. Several EdTech platforms are springing up to make learning digitally accessible.

A concept-driven model encourages students to think outside the box. It allows them to see the reason why they are learning something while also opening up their minds to use these learnings in a real-world situation

Fortunately, our textbooks are choked full of top-notch content. For example, A typical chapter on circles taught in schools has information like the circumference of a circle is 2(pi)r and the area is (pi)(r)(square), and so on. However, students need an active after-school learning experience that teaches them how to effectively use that knowledge. These platforms have adopted a model that is concept-driven. This is because students need to “understand” the concepts rather than memorize them. They are taught in a way that enables them to truly learn a concept.

Here are some ways that these EdTech platforms are going above and beyond to provide students with a concept-driven learning model.

Empowered With live Video learning

While recorded video-based learning is popular, it doesn’t offer students enough to go with. Students need more than a do-it-yourself approach to learning. This is where live sessions make all the difference. When used in concept-driven learning it becomes a boon to students and teachers alike. Let’s take a look at some ways in which live-video learning helps:

THE NEED OF REDESIGNING CONVENTIONAL MODE OF EDUCATION

There are some institutes that are taking serious steps in re-engineering their curriculum as well as teaching methodology, but the ratio of such colleges is not very impressive as they can be counted on fingertips.

STRATEGIES TO HELP STUDENTS MOTIVATE THEMSELVES IN TIMES OF ONLINE LEARNING

Over the decades, by and large, learning was confined to the four walls of a physical classroom. The advent of technology in education enabled students and provided them with varied learning engagements. Also, the outbreak of the Covid-19 propelled school leaders and institutions to adopt virtual learning mode as a feasible alternative to continue the teaching-learning process. Within a short span of just eight months, schools and students find themselves in a virtual learning era. At one time, what looked impossible in our country has become a reality with millions of parents, teachers, and students adopting this mode of learning. The evolution and availability of tech tools were some of the major factors that helped in making a quick and easy transition to the virtual interactive learning platform. Even as we continue to adapt to the new normal, parents and teachers as equal stakeholders need to constantly help students remain motivated and engaged on the virtual platform.

Education Disrupted The disruption unleashed by COVID-19 has shaken the education system at all levels - primary, secondary, and higher education. However, institutions seem to hold on to their discipline/faculty-centric and teaching-oriented model. Most are busy transferring this model into online platforms with controls such as attendance and proctored online exams. On the other hand, students are figuring out ways to make sense of the burgeoning academic knowledge and expectations, while grappling with issues of internet connectivity, availability of computers, ergonomics of increased screen time, and learning to beat the system.

CREATING FUTURE ENTREPRENEURS: BENEFITS OF GIVING ENTREPRENEURIAL TRAINING TO STUDENTS FROM A NASCENT STAGE

In a world that has been constantly evolving and developing with technology and innovations, the K-12 schools have remained a stagnant entity. Education is primarily the driving force of every nation’s economy – directly or indirectly. No doubt, many schools have modernized themselves, and have taken to learning by doing as their students work in groups to brainstorm and solve problems, dabble in online learning, and integrate science with arts. Still, it is often observed that students who graduate lack the necessary skills and out-of-the-box thinking needed to tackle and get through the modern-day workplace challenges. Teaching entrepreneurship does not only develop the capacity to start companies but even to think innovatively and ambitiously. Hence, including it in the school curriculum will prove beneficial.

How Management Curriculum Is Becoming More Industry Orientated

It is lamented in the Indian as well as in the Western higher education sectors that Business School education is lacking in industry relevance. It has been blamed that B-Schools are using an outdated curriculum, having less focus on skill-building, unable to establish ‘industry connect’ and failing to impact graduate attributes that are valued by today’s employers such as problem-solving and decision-making skills, leadership, work effectively as a team member, intrapreneurship, and the ability to grasp and manage complexity and dynamics in organizations and in the profession. Both employers and management educators are of the view that there is a gap between B-School academia and industry, that they couldn’t do much to bridge this gap.
