As e-learning support modules become more popular and accessible allowing each student to learn the core material of a subject at their own pace of comprehension, then educators will be able to devote more quality time to one-on-one teaching.
Dr. Jacquelyn Thayer Scott, O. C. , head of the Canadian 21st Century Learning Initiative comments on the importance of reshaping our approach to how we are educating humans.
“Good professional teachers are incredibly important to learners of all ages but alone they are not enough.
John Abbott a former school headmaster, who is increasingly known around the world as a man with an educational mission, speaks internationally about the development of the human brain and how we’ve got formal education “upside down and inside out”.
To address this situation, Mr. Abbott and a group of businesspeople and educators in the US and the UK founded the 21st Century Learning Initiative in 1995; with a mission to make everyone aware of the need to change the way we educate both children and adults.
This initiative hopes to help individuals and communities understand what we know about learning from neuroscience and other research, and how it can translate into better learning and healthier, happier lives in their own communities.
The Canadian group hopes to have materials and trainers available to communities within the year, and welcomes interested individuals and organizations to find out more and participate.

We must look to alternative methods of teaching to ensure today’s youth remain interested in the entire concept of learning throughout the next century. Incorporating e-learning support to enhance traditional teaching methods in both business and the academic arena is a good start.
