Blended learning for Gen Z: Smart practice for smart learners
The aim of education should be to teach how to think rather than what to think- to improve the cognitive thinking so it enables us to think of ourselves and goals of the life. In education, the increasing awareness of the learner-cantered, teaching-learning process has generated a lot of attention towards the learners, how long they keep the content learn, how they conceptualize the content and how they help themselves to organize their knowledge to enhance meaningful learning. In 21st century, the learner cantered approach is needed to be emphasized, i.e. we have to shift the focus from teacher to the learner. This can be done by using a blended learning technique. The student –cantered method focuses on the skill development and enables the lifelong learning also. The base of the constructive approach depends upon the meta-cognitive knowledge and meta-cognitive learning. This can be evolved by using the innovative method of teaching which aims to promote learning in communication with teachers and active participation of the learners. It helps to foster the skills such as problem-solving, critical thinking and reflective thinking among the learners.
