Education 4.0 is a school of thought that encourages non-traditional thinking when it comes to imparting education. It essentially uses technology-based tools and resources to drive education in non-traditional ways. This means that students are no longer in traditional classrooms learning from teachers using textbooks, pens and papers only.
The resource speaker, Prof. Collin C. Casas, Director, Planning and Development, Instructor of the College of Teacher Education (CTE) emphasized the importance of immersive learning. She underlined that with blended learning, incorporating different learning styles becomes possible – PowerPoints, images, audio files, video files, etc. This is one of the key reasons why blended learning is becoming increasingly popular.
Blended learning brings a series of benefits for teachers and it is worth giving it a try. With blended learning, teachers are better positioned to bridge the knowledge gap and help learners reach their maximum potential.
The training – workshop is participated by twenty-four teachers of the College of Arts, Humanities and Social sciences who enthusiastically embraced the challenge and effectiveness of the blended learning through collaboration and higher engagement.
