Since covid 19 came into existence, many schools and higher educational institutions were shut down globally; thus, students are not learning in the traditional classroom. The closure of schools has led to a surge of online instructional technology whereby learning occurs remotely, on digital platforms and teacher and students are separated by space and time.

Research has demonstrated that online learning has improved content retention and requires less time in higher educational institutions, but not so much in k-12. Learning can occur comfortably at homes. Due to changes away from the classroom, people wonder if this online learning could continue to post the covid era and its impact on the education market and systems.

Even before covid, there was a growth and adoption of education technology with worldwide edtech investment reaching $18.66 Billion in 2019; however, there has been a sharp rise during the coronavirus period.

Many digital learning platforms started offering free learning services to students to respond to the significant demand rise in hope if large adoptions with end users and educational institutions. Not just here in the US, but globally.

BYJU’s –It is an educational technology and online tutoring firm that started in 2011. BYJU is based in Bangalore and is the most valuable edtech company in the world. Ever since BYJU’s announced free classes on its think and learn application, the number of new students using this product has increased by 200%.

Tencent classroom has been mainly used in China since mid-February when the Chinese government ordered its students to resume learning using the digital learning platforms

Companies are slowly improving capabilities to offer a one-stop-shop for students and teachers. An example is lark, based in Singapore, which began offering students and teachers unlimited video conferencing time, real-time co-editing projects, auto-translation, smart calendar scheduling, and other crucial services.

Alibaba distance learning solution, Ding talk also prepared for an influx in online learning demands. Ding talk deployed more than 10000 new cloud servers in just two hours to support large scale remote work.

Media organizations like the British Broadcasting Company, BBC are also powering virtual learning. BBC is providing a 14 week of curriculum-based education for children across the United Kingdom.

Zoom meeting app has also provided a learning platform. It doesn’t matter where learning occurs; thus, as long as all parties have a good internet connection, the zoom can engage learners and teachers. It can also engage organizations. With zoom, you can teach anywhere, learn anywhere, and connect with people anywhere. You can teach both via audio and videos.

Zoom is very engaging as students can ask questions or clarification. There are no disturbances as long as the participant mute their microphones.  

One can also teach using MS Teams. Within the Microsoft team’s educators can converse with learners. The participants are allowed to share files and websites, distribute and grade assignments. MS teams hub brings conversations, assignments, and apps together, thus letting educators and learners have an enabling environment for the benefit of them all.

How has teaching technology impacted education?

Teaching technology has enabled educators to teach students from wherever they are. Students can also learn from anywhere.

Teaching technology has made learning more convenient and cheaper as students and educators do not need to waste resources to travel to schools.

A lot of learning time is saved; you don’t have to access a school; you learn and teach from your residence.

Happy Valentine’s Day

A photo of David Brodosi and his wife

Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is celebrated annually on February 14. It originated as a minor Western Christian feast day honoring one or two early Christian martyrs named Saint Valentine and, through later folk traditions, has become a significant cultural, religious, and commercial celebration of romance and romantic love in many regions of the world.

We celebrate by telling and showing our special someone how much we love them. I have known my wife since high school, married now for 20 years, and have two amazing boys. Thank you Nancy for loving me, being by my side in the good and bad, and always showing me how much you love me.

Thank you for giving us two healthy and amazingly bright sons and for making memories that will last a lifetime.

Missing Traveling with Family

I think it’s really important for everyone to understand the toll this virus is taking on families. I know I forward to taking our yearly vacation, and now that this is no longer possible at this particular time, it’s indeed affecting me and my family in a number of different ways. What about you?

I noticed that the coronavirus doesn’t just physically have an impact on our family because they’re confined, it see the affects on an emotional and mental level. This is especially true for both my teen boys, as they spend most of their time in their bedrooms attending classes or playing online.

When it comes to our family vacation, the fact that we use this traveling time to bond and have fun with each other is making it difficult for us to find things to do. Unfortunately, our spring break activities and upcoming summer travel plans have been canceled. These cancellations are devastating for our family as we look forward to our travels each year. I enjoy seeing my boys grow as they experience new places and new cultures.

My family and I just returned from a cruise to Cozumel Mexico. Traveling with my wife and two teen age boys is an awesome experience. We enjoyed exploring the island, traveling to exotic places on the island and enjoying the outdoors. We took lots of photographs of our adventures and the natural beauty of Mexico.

Over 3 million people cruise to Mexico’s most populated island every year and all of the mainstream cruise lines including Carnival Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, MSC, Princess Cruises visit the island. There’s a reason it’s one of the most visited cruise ports in the world.

When it comes to Caribbean ports, there’s Cozumel… and then everywhere else. The Mexican island is booming and is the most busy cruise port in the word outside of Florida. Each year, about four million people make a stop in Cozumel and every major cruise line that sails the Caribbean makes a call there.

Of course, that means there are millions of people looking for the best thing to do in the time that are in Cozumel. If you’re in this group, don’t worry. You aren’t alone. The good news? There are plenty of options for you to choose from. Below, we’ve rounded up a definitive list of all the things you can do in Cozumel.

Colleges and universities have generally been quick to adopt new technologies, often even before their educational value has been proven. Throughout its history, higher education has experimented with technological advances as diverse as the blackboard and the personal computer.

The technologies available today provide us an opportunity to create a system of higher education that provides excellent education and ensures even greater equity for our students tomorrow.

Help Find the Nameless Hiker

This is a great read!!

The man on the trail went by “Mostly Harmless.” He was friendly and said he worked in tech. After he died in his tent, no one could figure out who he was.

In April 2017, a man started hiking in a state park just north of New York City. He wanted to get away, maybe from something and maybe from everything. He didn’t bring a phone; he didn’t bring a credit card. He didn’t even really bring a name. Or at least he didn’t tell anyone he met what it was.

He did bring a giant backpack, which his fellow hikers considered far too heavy for his journey. And he brought a notebook, in which he would scribble notes about Screeps, an online programming game. The Appalachian Trail runs through the area, and he started walking south, moving slowly but steadily down through Pennsylvania and Maryland.
