To educate someone is to provide them with a better means of life; a brighter future filled with possibilities. It can be said that the entire focus of education lies on the future. But with every new generation of students comes new changes in information, technology and even geography; it is vital that our trainers adapt to changing dynamics in the classroom.
The tutors of tomorrow will be well-versed in social media platforms and online teaching techniques. We live in a digital age and it makes sense that our teaching should also reflect these changes. Teachers today face a crucible – adapt or be left behind.
Tuitions used to represent dimly lit rooms and often a fatigued tutor drooling on. These antiquated tution methods are being left behind in the dust as more and more students switch to digital mediums of learning every day.
However, know this is not the end of tuition centres but rather a golden opportunity to see increases in your customer base. Consider how much you could save on overhead costs, on transportation for students, on providing refreshments. Creating an online portal can be an extremely lucrative option but it comes with its own pitfalls.
Content format now plays a crucial role in teaching online. Just providing literal text-to-screen translations of study material is not enough to draw students. Material needs to be dynamic, regularly updated and based firmly on practical application.Videos and animations provide the most effective paths to a student’s heart and to his/her attention.
Online Tutors help bridge the gap in knowledge most students have – due to inefficient teaching methods at school, boring content formats or even biased teachers. Tutors hold the responsibility of unlocking a student’s potential and as such need to be updated and up to the task!
