What Will Schools Look like Post-Covid?

A year after schools suddenly shut down for the coronavirus, many students found their daily school lives upended. As the end of the 2021 school year approaches, many educators are looking at what the future of education will look like. The Washington Post and educational experts say there are seven areas where change is occurring and will continue to impact the future of learning.

Flipped Learning and Video Content

Flipped learning in the classroom is a relatively new style of teaching. This learner-centered approach puts a student's first contact with new concepts prior to any in-class instruction. The student becomes responsible for learning using independent study time and the classroom offers a deeper, more developed understanding of what they learned.

The Pandemic Brings the Rise of EdTech

The year 2020 will be known as the year of the pandemic. It may also be remembered as the year EdTech reimagined education for the 21st Century. In 2020 alone Education Technology startups in the US raised over $2.2 billion in venture and private equity capital. This is a 23% increase in capital and a 19% increase in deals from the previous ‘non-COVID’ year of 2019, which by comparison raised $1.7 billion.

SCED Codes: EdGate supports the alignment of your courses to SCED codes

Does your company need courses aligned to SCED codes? EdGate can provide those codes as a separate metadata field in your deliverable. For states that are not using SCED codes, but have adopted their own unique course codes, EdGate can provide those state-specific codes as they pertain to your courses.

What are the ingredients for a great remote learning course?

Remote learning has become a major part of our education system and while it has unique challenges, requiring creativity and innovation, it can be a rewarding experience for teachers and students. To get the most out of your courses and create a successful learning environment, there are a few things to consider.
