Although the future of education and the workforce is still uncertain, one thing that is undeniable fact is that the world will be a much more flexible place.
According to the Future of Careers, the World Economic Forum, one of the major drivers of the transformation in global business is the adoption of flexible offices and modern technologies that enable collaboration.
This includes the ability to teleconference, telecommute and the use of coworking spaces to meet the varying work needs of employees.
With the workplace evolving at a steady pace, schools should follow suit in order to support students who want to collaborate while virtually learning.
So how can institutions create flexible classrooms that nurture the needs of students? Much like businesses operating remotely, transitioning to remote learning allows students to have a bigger say in how they study. This leads to higher engagement and a better understanding of their subject.
Additionally, teachers have the ability to have more flexibility when aiding their students with work. This open line of communication instantly makes for a better learning experience, thus allowing them to grasp concepts better.
As companies are quickly learning that the employee experience is key to a successful workplace, the same can be applied to the student experience.
