Challenges for Educators in 2021
Technology is making it easier for students to learn.
Edtech will be the most widely used in class.
Online classes will be more common, and the students will be able to learn at a pace that works for them.
There are always challenges, but that’s what makes what we do so rewarding!
The Biggest Challenges
I think one of the biggest challenges is making sure that students are getting everything they need out of an experience so they can succeed later down the road when they’re going into college or careers or whatever they decide to do after high school. Another challenge is making sure all students have access to opportunities, especially those who come from underprivileged backgrounds and might not otherwise have access to these opportunities. That’s why giving back and making sure all kids get a chance at success is important to me because it has changed my life for the better.
My Vision for the Future
I want every student to have the same opportunity that I had and to be able to go to a great school that gives them not only a great education but also has their best interest at heart. It’s important that we are all striving for the same goal: for students to be successful in life. I want every child to have access to all of the opportunities that they need to succeed in life.
My Advice to Educators?
Don’t ever stop learning. There is always something new going on in education, and there are always new ways to use technology to make learning better and more effective. Learning how to use technology well is important because it will not only help you teach but also help you connect with students in a different way so they’re more engaged and motivated.
