One of the most important elements of education is its personification. Perhaps you have heard this term before, or it may be that you are beginning to study virtually and it is the first time you hear it.
Today we want to share with you some characteristics about personalized education and its benefits and contributions to today’s society. To do this, we will establish a series of words that help define and establish the concepts of virtual education.
Adaptability is perhaps one of the most important factors in virtual education. Since it goes from the adaptability of the study program, to the adaptability of the student according to their abilities and time.
For example, a student can define which subjects to see first, define their own schedules, and set her own pace based on her abilities. This in a way is wonderful, mainly because traditional systems limit us to a defined period of time, sometimes limiting the student’s time to be able to carry out other activities. With personalized education this is totally different.
One of the important elements that is achieved through the adaptability that virtual education offers us is inclusion, especially for those with cognitive disabilities. In traditional academic spaces, people with disabilities who do not have accessible environments are limited to being able to develop correctly. On the other hand, in virtuality, the student can define the method of studying it, without the need to pressure himself to take a rhythm that bothers him or limits his potential for it.
Despite the criticism of virtuality due to the lack of relationship, we believe that this educational method is much more innovative than the traditional one, since the relationship can be carried out in different ways, because personalized education goes beyond just relating , is linked to the development of the student’s autonomy before their education.
Sense of belonging
With these words we end. The sense of belonging is perhaps one of the greatest objectives to be achieved through virtual education, since by having constant participation in your education, you generate a sense of belonging. The student begins to feel that what he studies has personal value.
These aspects are difficult to achieve through traditional education, especially since students often have contact with their education indirectly or through what other students perceive.
Today we want to invite you to live the experience of virtuality in your education and appreciate its benefits. We are committed to the educational future in Latin America and we would love for you to be part of this dream.
