Online Education : The need for the Past, Present and Future
Apr 30, 2021
The world is always in a constant shift. With new ideas and inventions coming in swiftly, we are forced to change our way of living. Humans are constantly evolving at a furious pace through past experiences and by observing history. Like all things that need change, education, too, needs a serious makeover.
Over the past few years, especially last year, the education system changed at a rapid pace. Since the world shifted its base to a more digital space, educating oneself is also shifting its base to digital platforms. The inventions and changes at political, social, and technological levels are evident and efficient. Even though the fundamental right to education was universally recognized in 1948, it was only after the Industrial Revolution that everyone got a chance at education.
The internet also played a massive role in bringing this change. Most people today rely on the internet to stay informed. However, using the internet to acquire education or any piece of information is a risky business. It is important to choose the right amount and the correct information to consume with too much information around us. Analyzing the online education phenomena at a micro-level, we need to look at our context from a political and social standpoint.
Nepal is going through a long-term political transition. It is in a constant process of searching for political stability. In the pursuit of finding political stability, the education institution has been hit hard. During the people’s movement, many schools and colleges had to be closed for months, eventually affecting their learning process. Hence, this shows that online education has been a necessity for a long time.
The past year is another example of how unprecedented events could easily disrupt daily lives and the world in general. Many educational institutions shifted their base to an online education during this global pandemic — an absolute necessity during the pandemic.
While as much as we all enjoy traditional classrooms, 2020 taught us that we should always have an alternative. And this year, 2021, more than ever, educational institutions should be prepared for anything. The good news?
