Tech For Good: Using E-Learning to Make a Positive Impact
Technology has the power to solve problems, improve lives, and make our planet a better place. When we think of using tech for good, we often think about medical breakthroughs or protecting nature. But tech for good can be employed at a smaller scale, with technology such as e-learning often being overlooked.
The role of e-learning in education and the fact that it has been around so long means that it’s not the cool tech on the block, however, there are many ways that e-learning can be used to make a positive impact.
E-learning can reach people who would otherwise not have access to education. E-learning can benefit learners who live in remote areas, who have disabilities, or who cannot afford traditional education.
E-learning can be used to personalise learning and make it more engaging for learners. This can be done by using technologies that adapt the content and instruction to each learner's individual needs and interests.
E-learning can be used to measure learning outcomes and provide feedback to learners, using tools such as quizzes, tests, and surveys.
Here at adaptiVLE, we believe that e-learning definitely falls under the tech for good banner and we have worked with a variety of clients to develop e-learning solutions that address a wide range of needs.
Camp In The Cloud, is a virtual camp that provides children with disabilities with the opportunity to make friends and have fun.
We Mind The Gap, is a program that uses e-learning to help young people from disadvantaged backgrounds prepare for employment.
Sainsbury's Active Kids, a program that uses e-learning to encourage children to be more active.
Doncaster Deaf Trust, an online platform to deliver courses on British Sign Language.
Over the coming weeks, we are going to be spotlighting a number of our tech for good projects and delving into how each of them has made a positive change for their audience, helping people learn, grow, and succeed.
