The need for educators and business leaders to capture attention remotely exploded during the COVID-19 pandemic. But as society comes out the other side of the pandemic don’t, expect remote learning to go away anytime soon. The world was already becoming increasingly remote, the pandemic merely served as an accelerant, now many are beginning to accept remote learning as the new normal.
While course instructors have adapted to digital learning some have done better than others, capturing and holding attention can be a struggle as students and employees wrestle with Zoom fatigue.
While instructors struggled to capture attention, on the other side of the coin students struggled to engage with material and information in an online space. According to a Common Sense Media poll conducted with high school students during COVID-19, 59% of students surveyed said online learning is worse than in-person schooling, and 19% described it as “much worse.” Nearly half of students surveyed who wanted to return to the classroom said they learn better in-person and over 61% of the total group reported they were concerned about falling behind academically due to the pandemic.
For many students the move to remote learning led to lagging focus and straying attention. Oftentimes this happens because of the monotonous and impersonal way in which information is conveyed. Learning becomes inaccessible. Students who don’t do well with auditory learning struggle in video lessons, and students who rely on visual support have difficulty with text-heavy readings or long seminars.
