Wishing you a very happy new year.
As we start getting used to ‘22’ in our dates, let’s not forget the important events that marked last year and relook at the challenges with a fresh set of eyes.
One such challenge, as far as digital learning is concerned, is the issue of student engagement (or lack thereof). It is true that remote digital learning has saved the day when it comes to continuous learning at a time when schools and colleges shut overnight. However, that doesn’t mean we turn a blind eye towards some of the challenges thrown at us by its non-humanized nature.
Humans are social creatures by nature and are most engaged when they interact and participate in groups and communities. In absence of that interaction, students are bound to feel less engaged. This is just one of the engagement challenges that remote learning poses.
There is no easy solution to this problem. However, we’ve made some progress in the past few years and the hope is that we continue doing that this year and make students ‘want’ to engage in digital remote learning rather than ‘have to’.

2. Why Districts Should Continue Using Digital Curriculum Beyond the
With the increased adoption of digital curriculum and educational technologies, several benefits came to light for both students and educators. Districts unlocked vital advantages that may have long-lasting benefits including personalized learning experience, preparing students for the digital world, cost-efficiency, better accessibility, helping close achievement gaps.

Create, Share and Learn with MagicBox Course Management
Despite the fact that previous year saw a boom in the way digital learning was put into practice, We saw students struggling with social and emotional well-being and teachers experiencing loss of engagement levels in the virtual classrooms amongst many other challenges.
We would like to hear your side of the story and experiences from the previous year that help us at MagicBox to use technology to effectively address the lack of engagement we have seen so far.
