One of the biggest impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic is the change it has brought to our education system – from minimal inclusion of digital tools in the teaching-learning process to abruptly going completely online to blended learning. In today’s ‘new normal’ times, the prime focus is not so much on the literacy of digital tools, which was the main aim at the onset of this transformation, but on how to carefully incorporate these tools in the teaching-learning process to be able to inculcate higher-order thinking skills in learners.
This webinar will trace the digital transformation of educators during the course of the pandemic, the challenges faced, and how some of them were overcome. It will also explore ways in which digital tools can be included in inquiry-based learning. Through this webinar, we hope to inform educators on the importance of digital tools and how to incorporate them in lesson plans for effective learning.
The webinar is mainly for educators in higher education institutions. School teachers may find it useful too.
