Digital Learning Day
Digital Learning Day is observed next on Thursday, February 29th, 2024 (335 days from today).
Life today has been digitized. Almost all devices today are digital devices. The digital age has opened up new opportunities – and challenges – for education and the social sciences. We now have quick access to diverse information sources, as well as tools for easy information setup and analysis. At the same time, because the operation is so easy, it is more important than ever to teach students how to select information sources.
Obviously, the digital age has given education a new look, a large amount of information is available at all times, students and teachers can use online tools to analyze information and discuss with each other easily. As many educators have noted, this means that some traditional views of education are no longer relevant today: the teacher and the textbook are no longer the truth, the memorization of knowledge is no longer the methods are effective, and essays cannot comprehensively assess a student's ability.
The process of globalization also affects education. Students are part of social and economic networks, they are no longer confined to the local and national communities in which they live. This opens up new learning possibilities and ways for them to interact. Students can easily communicate with individuals whose backgrounds, experiences, and beliefs are different from their own, and as such, schools are not always able to protect them from ambiguity and disobedience conflicting views blind beliefs and behaviors. Along with that, when the process of regional and global economic integration directly affects our lives, schools need to equip students with the necessary skills and knowledge, going beyond activities and local lifestyle.
