Education in the Phygital Age: Imparting education in classrooms has been the hallmark of teaching-learning up until about 18 months ago. Then the Covid pandemic struck the world impacting every industry and forcing all to re-think and re-invent their areas of work. EdTech companies took to broadcasting ready-made self-learning solutions which grew at a never before pace. Their desire to capture market share at great speed pushed them to go overboard with propagating entirely online self-learning solutions, thereby overlooking the crucial role that the teacher plays in students’ learning journey. They missed the understanding of the need for a transition plan that would include training for every stakeholder, e.g. schools, teachers, students and parents, and the need to implement the new teaching-learning and assessing methods. They seemed to be pushing a ‘knee-jerk’ plan from face-to-face based teaching to an entirely online, self-learning model and a broadcasting model as a nearly permanent feature of the teaching-learning landscape.
