Creating An e-learning School Culture
Education is constantly revolutionizing the way students learn and how instructors teach. Technology is often the driving force behind many of the world’s changes and innovations. In education, creating an e-learning culture is more about developing and tweaking what already exists, sharing a common vision, and doing things a little differently.
Technological development is constant in our daily lives. Acquiring technological skills from the digital environments that a learning platform offers is practically essential for knowing how to adapt to changes in the existing models and the professional activities of the future of our society. Among these skills, learning platforms begin with the mastery of information and communication technology, using them to learn , accessing the content that complements learning, selecting the most relevant elements, analyzing them, and drawing conclusions based on various scenarios. In fact, technological skills help to develop critical thinking, problem solving, creativity and collaboration. Additionally, they foster interest and curiosity in knowledge and innovation, while improving the capacity for initiative, adaptability and integration.

“Students do not learn much just sitting in classes listening to teachers, memorizing prepackaged assignments, and spitting out answers. They must talk about what they are learning, write reflectively about it, relate it to past experiences, and apply it to their daily lives. They must make what they learn part of themselves.” – Arthur W. Chickering and Stephen C. Ehrmann
