Global Learning with Edneed Community
Overview: A phenomenon has come into existence with the increased use of the Internet. The changing scenarios of use of the internet have made most of us global citizens, by converting the world into a global village and making it more interconnected.
Using the internet as a mode of learning is something we all used to do without even realizing its compulsion in the future. We have never thought that social media would play an important role in this learning process. Most of us use social media to chat with our friends and share memes, etc., we have never thought it has quality content posted, but we have seen many users posting quality content on their profiles and pages as well in a desire to share their wisdom. People who are keen to gain knowledge can easily benefit from it.
Also, the current situation which is happening in the education sector has changed the way we learn. People have become more interconnected these days, and depend more upon the information available on the internet rather than referring to offline materials, libraries, etc. The information available on the internet is much more accessible, saves a lot of time, and is mostly free of cost.
These materials also have the flexibility of mediums such as PDFs, audiobooks, and video formats, which are available for the same content. PDFs, audiobooks, and video formats are there because different people have different ways of consuming information to learn efficiently.
During the crucial time, when the traditional model of learning was shut down, Universities and schools both have moved to online learning platforms and have given importance to the online mode of learning. Schools used to depend on their chalk-talk way of educating. Yet, they choose the online mode to provide the best quality education.
Global learning: The concept of global learning has many definitions and with a common crux that says to share knowledge across the globe. This phenomenon helps learners to gain knowledge from all across the world.
It helps students in integrating multiple disciplinary perspectives, enhance their critical thinking, and embrace diversity and become self-aware as well. When knowledge is not limited to just classrooms, people gather it from any source be it videos, audiobooks, or pdf books. People just use their internet-connected devices and get the knowledge. When institutes have opted for online mode, students and teachers both were very new to this process of online educational technology. Yet, they were trying their best to get used to it.
