Digital Transformation Needs Techquity to Truly Revolutionize the Learning Experience
Digital transformation (Dx) puts a student-centric strategy at the center of a new era in higher education. Its prominence comes after a year of digital learning, where students' access to technology determined their access to education and the quality of their learning experience. But true Dx goes beyond digitalization and investment in technology. It requires a cultural shift within teaching and learning. Enter: techquity. It not only describes the need for bridging the digital divide but also advocates for a teaching culture that empowers students to make the most of the exponential amount of information in the digital world. Ultimately, Dx needs to come hand in hand with an antidote to information overload—only then will learners and educators reap the benefits of an improved student experience. This session explores data on the relationship between information overload, students’ access to technology, and student success; the challenges and opportunities that limitless information creates in the learning experience; and how technology publishers can support you in changing the conversation about technology and learning.
