Higher education can be expensive, so we want to help. Comindware - leading provider of workflow management software - awards $4,000 in scholarships every year to the students who are committed to playing their part in improving education through digital transformation. Our vision is to shape digital transformation of education and switch focus from implementing new technology to better learning experience and uninterrupted digitalization.
Comindware offers scholarship awards for the students who present their well-researched and evidence-based essay about improving education through digital transformation. Remember, devices in a classroom and e-learning are the tip of the iceberg and it is vital to make sure that digital transformation also includes every aspect of learning that is under the bonnet.
For a decade it has been said that we are on the edge of digital education revolution. Media didactics point towards the potential for classroom set of devices, redesigned learning spaces, artificial intelligence, and more, but hardly offer leading-edge approaches to digital transformation of educational establishment as a whole. More digital media or devices used in a classroom for the time being have no effect on how teachers organise or plan their lessons and handle a wide range of workflows in critical, student-facing departments like Registration, Academic Records, Financial Aid and Admissions. The outlined digital transformation of education is certain to fail if we assume that this change will be self-effecting simply through the use of digital technology in classrooms and moving educative materials in the Clouds. If digital transformation is to be started, then this is to be understood as a more comprehensive change process which requires the improvement of multiple aspects within the field and which should reflect upon and be constructed as a joint learning environment of all stakeholders.
We want to raise awareness of the potential challenges of education digital transformation and potential of uninterrupted digitalization. We encourage students to come up with a viable solution to help the education establishments to realize potential of uninterrupted digitalization and offer reasonable digital transformation success metrics. Your write-up has to show the education establishments, that aspire to revolutionary improvement of all stakeholders’ experience, a way ahead.
