Collaboration and Blended Learning Fosters Critical Skills

Teacher Insights

According to a study conducted in the US, the collaborative usage of digital and traditional learning fosters the critical skills of the students. The 'Project Tomorrow’s 2017 Speak Up Research Project for Digital Learning' says that, 56 percent of parents of school-aged children are concerned that their child isn’t learning the right skills in school to be successful in college or a future job. They may be on to something.

Classrooms with digital tools allow ­students to collaborate in groups to ­problem-solve, which is a critical skill needed in college and in the modern workforce. In blended learning, where online digital media is combined with traditional classroom methods, students pick up marketable traits that are used later in life, including critical thinking, resource management, interpersonal communication and decision-making.

Among parents surveyed, 7 in 10 say that their child’s future success depends on them developing technology-use skills, which is also central to a ­personalized-learning model.

“Teachers who have experienced online and blended classes for their own professional learning demonstrate advanced uses of technology with their own students, have stronger valuations on the role of technology within learning, and higher aspirations for leveraging technology to support transformed learning environments,” the report states.
