DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION IN TECHNICAL EDUCATION: CHALLENGES OF REMOTE TEACHING DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC
Keywords:Remote Technical Education, Pandemic, Bloom's Taxonomy, Digital Tools
The focus of the present study is an analysis of remote technical education, with a particular emphasis on professional technical courses such as Industrial Automation, Electrotechnics, Mechatronics, and Mechanics during the Covid-19 pandemic crisis. We investigate the primary pedagogical strategies adopted by educators to overcome the challenges imposed by this scenario and the digital tools that were instrumental in combating the impacts caused by compulsory remote education.
Within the scope of this study, the challenges encountered during this unprecedented period of remote education were analyzed, as well as the identification of the advantages and disadvantages of this modality, observed from the perspective of both teachers and students. The work provides a holistic view of these aspects, giving a voice to the main actors involved in this process.
Moreover, the study explores Bloom's Taxonomy, providing an analysis from its theoretical foundations to its practical applications to better structure and categorize pedagogical content and the skills to be developed in students. We discuss the most effective ways of assessing student progress in this challenging context, providing useful insights for future implementations.
In conclusion, the work also presents a series of digital tools employed during the pandemic to enhance the quality of remote technical education and promote the development of student competencies in this environment. The analysis of these tools offers valuable insight into the role and impact of technology on teaching and learning, which can be leveraged even during regular face-to-face education.
