Why you must learn coding and technologies from remote instructors?
The world has changed a lot in recent years, especially in the realm of education. With the advent of online learning, students of all ages now have the ability to learn from remote instructors from anywhere in the world. In this blog, we will explore why it is important for youth to adapt their skills to learn from remote instructors.
I get this question from parents in my business “Can my child (ur myself) join in person class?” I tell them learning coding and technologies is part of the curriculum, not an option. I also ask them why you want in person. I hear two specific reasons 1) He/she does not pay attention if instructor is online (They play with other apps on computer 2) He/she wants social aspect to meet other students. My answer is 1) student can play with other apps easily, just because instructor physically standing there as opposed standing on a video conference does not make any difference. 2) – unlike other classes such as sports, science and other subjects when it comes to coding, they have to interact online even if they are on site. Even to hand off a file, you do it online, You cannot get experience of handing off baton in the race or passing a ball in basketball/soccer. But with on-site class you miss out on all of the following:
1. Access to a wider range of instructors
One of the main benefits of remote learning is that it opens up access to a wider range of instructors. In the past, students were limited to the instructors in their local area or who they could afford to travel to see. Now, however, students can access instructors from all over the world, which means they can learn from experts in their field and gain a broader understanding of the subject matter.
2. Flexibility and convenience
Remote learning also offers a level of flexibility and convenience that is difficult to match with traditional learning methods. Students can learn at their own pace, choose the time that suits them best, and study from the comfort of their own homes. This is particularly important for youth who may have other commitments, such as work, family, or extracurricular activities.
3. Developing essential digital skills
The world is becoming increasingly digital, and young people need to be able to adapt to this changing environment. Learning from remote instructors requires the use of digital tools and platforms, which can help young people develop essential digital skills that will be valuable in the future.
4. Preparing for the future of work
The future of work is likely to be more remote and digital than ever before. By learning from remote instructors, young people can develop the skills they need to succeed in this new world. This includes skills such as digital literacy, communication, and collaboration.
5. Personalized learning
Remote learning also offers a more personalized approach to learning. With the use of online assessments and analytics, instructors can tailor their teaching to the needs of each individual student. This means that young people can learn at their own pace and focus on the areas where they need the most help.
6. Opening student’s mind to wider diversified community
A student gets to see same number of folks in the classroom in the school/college and that becomes the world which is small. Global classroom brings more exposure early on and see things beyond your normal school setup. That brings more options to process to make decisions for colleges and careers and ability think beyond the scope of what you see at school.
7. Being late or missing the class
If you miss or late for the class, it is much easier to add you to the break out session and do not disturb the flow of the class. In a physical class setup people turn heads, invariable it will disturb the class with sounds and distractions.
In conclusion, the ability to learn from remote instructors is an incredible opportunity for young people. It offers access to a wider range of instructors, flexibility and convenience, the chance to develop essential digital skills, opening the mind to the wider student communities, dealing with logistics of attending classes regularly and preparation for the future of work. Having said that developing social skills is also important, that can be achieved through events and/or Hackathons conducted by us periodically. By adapting their skills to learn from remote instructors, young people can gain knowledge and expertise that will help them succeed in their personal and professional lives.
