Blended Learning is a Core Component of Education 3.0

Blended learning has been around since the early 2000s but with the current shift in higher education from 2.0 to 3.0, though, it has become more important than ever. Core to this is the development and implementation of new forms of education technology or EdTech, significantly transformed the way students learn. Thanks to its interactive and challenging characteristics, blended learning is remarkable for promoting Metacognitive ability. When it is done correctly, blended learning has the abil

Augmented Reality: The Future of Education

By 2025, two billion of the global population is going to be made up by the youngest generation: Generation Alpha, also known as the iGeneration. Generation Alpha are children born between 2010 and 2025. This is the first generation entirely born in the 21st century. These children are considered to be the most technological-infused demographic up to date. Generation Alpha use technology, smartphones, tablets, and computers naturally. They haven't known life without the Internet or video games

Elon Musk: From SpaceX to Ad Astra School

The Generation Alpha, children born between the years 2010 to 2025, are considered to be the most technological-infused demographic up to date. Generation Alpha is the first generation entirely born within the 21st century. By 2025, the year when the youngest Alphas are born, the Alphas will account to two billion of the global population. By 2030, the first children of the Generation Alpha will be 20 years old. Between 2035 and 2040, the Alphas are going to be in charge of positions of leader

Classroom 3.0: Instructors Leveraging Augmented Reality, Holograms

Higher Education is experiencing more changes than ever before. This acceleration is part of the transformation of a university education for the 21st century, also called Classroom 3.0. The development from Classroom 2.0 to Classroom 3.0 adds the driving force of 3D and 3D technology into the classroom for colleges and universities. Many educators argue that 3D is the natural way of learning, and the way of learning in the years to come. Immersive technologies such as Augmented Reality (AR), V

Higher Education Institutions Need to Adopt Digital Citizenship Practices

Colleges are incorporating digital citizenship in their curricula as higher education accelerates the adoption of new technologies and strategies in the new blended learning world. Technology is changing higher education and the way students come to classrooms. The tools that faculty and students use make tasks such as creating or sharing documents, presentations, or video more streamlined.

Universities have been investing in acquiring equipment and upgrading their network infrastructure in order to keep up with the demand for high quality virtual education. But are students paying attention in virtual classrooms? If so, how can we know? This is a question that haunts many in academia. Researchers Jens Madsen and Lucas C. Parra from City College of New

Baldwin Wallace Builds Network Infrastructure to Support Remote Instruction

“The idea is to design a classroom where an instructor can see both worlds — the virtual class and the physical class.” That is how Greg Flanik, Chief Information Officer at Baldwin Wallace University (BW) in Berea, OH, summarizes how its 3,400 undergraduates and graduate students, in addition to hundreds of faculty and staff members, experience higher education in the post Covid-19 era. "I think it is important to remember that there is a significant difference between a course designed to be

How Colleges and Industry Are Teaming Up to Tackle Tech Job Pipeline - Part 2

Higher education and industry are teaming up to tackle the challenges colleges are currently facing to fill the new technology jobs talent pipeline. By sharing with others what they are doing, universities and businesses can inspire others to do similar things, and to start similar programs to both re-skill current employees and help train new college graduates. "From the employer perspective, if there would be enough graduate students graduating every year with computer science degrees then we

Colleges are Facing Challenges to Fill the New Tech Jobs Talent Pipeline - Part 1

Higher education has been one of the most impacted and disrupted segments during the Covid-19 pandemic. More than ever, there is a need to activate the discussion in higher education on how the future workforce may look like going forward. In the 2030s, jobs are going to be rather different from the ones that exist today. Many of those future jobs do not yet exist. As exciting as it sounds, it also represents a great challenge. At the recent digital CES 2021, a panel discussion representing ac

Astra Nova School, Following Elon Musk's Ad Astra School Experiment, Leads the Future of Education

In the 2030s, many jobs are going to be quite different from the jobs that exist today. Moreover, many of those jobs do not exist just yet, and some are simply unimaginable today. The future of work will require a set of skills that are not taught in schools today. No one knows if they will ever be part of the curriculum, unless the education system gets a very much needed update and upgrade to the 21st century, in addition to a mindset with vision into the future. What I mean is that most of t
