Zoom Call 1 - Digital Education

Amidst this global pandemic, schools remain closed and teachers have taken to Zoom for teaching and adapting projects for remote completion. Universities, such as Harvard, are offering numerous free online classes. The trend began well before Covid-19, with teachers turning to apps like Google Classroom or Schoology. While schools will eventually reopen, the lessons that educators have learnt from online classes will change education forever. This Zoom Call helps teachers grasp the new digital skillset for the future of learning.

Healthcare apps have revolutionized the efficiency and convenience of the industry. A fantastic example of this is Ping An Good Doctor, a Chinese app that has successfully reduced the heavy backlog of China’s healthcare system by allowing for doctors to consult patients and prescribe treatments online. This has freed up hospital facilities to patients who need intensive care or prolonged treatment. Other recent developments such as telemedicine, AI deep learning and wearable trackers mean that healthcare workers of the future will need to be well acquainted with digital evolution.

People’s daily commute today involves checking the news online or listening to a podcast rather than reading a newspaper. Print media is quickly declining as online avenues are far more accessible, convenient and cheap for consuming media. Most large publications, such as BBC or the New York Times, now publish online. This requires different skills for journalists such as adapting their content for unique audiences and provides them the chance to self-publish on blogs or start their own digital writing sites. This Zoom Call focuses on skills needed for being strong digital storytellers.
