New group of developmentally challenged?

I think soon there will be a revolution in the global education market.

After all these years of continuous studying and teaching, I think students can be divided by two seperate types:

1. Observation type
They can learn just by observing others demonstrating a skill, or, reading instructions and examples.
They don't really need a lot of real-time following up to get them motivated or invest concentration into what they are to study.

2. Interactive type
They need strong social cues to initiate the process of learning, and this is often done by real-time interactions with tactile and emotional play. Their concentration can only be kept by constructively building the flow of instructions.

Online teaching is good with type 1 students and type 2 often fails miserably. Traditional big class lecture-based teaching is basically type 1 so it is to be predicted that a lot of these educational institutions are going to face huge revolutions in how they run, even with the COVID-19 gone.

It is the type 2 students that are of concern. They will start to exhibit typical behaviors associated to students with the developmental challenges.

Bascially speaking, most departments in the universities will gradually switch to research-based ones since current technology will enable the whole world to enroll in the best online teaching providers, and people will ask for it.

I can't see why we all shouldn't be instructed by better lecturers. It is too sad that college students often skip classes because they don't find it rewarding enough.

Since economically education will soon favor type 1 students, cultures that build on strong social interactions will soon find the highly-educated members distancing themselves from them since economically this will become less and less sustainable.

I see learning disorders or developmental challenges as modes of learning that deviate from economical models of teaching. As the matching supply dwindles due to economic return becoming more and more unsustainable, less grew up being able to support such modes of learning, finally the ones with that demand become those with "special needs" and few could cater for their prefered methods of learning.

人類有很多不同的屬性,有一兩種偏離正常(就當是十分之一吧)是很平常的。假設人有5種互相沒有關係的屬性,五個數值都是「正常」的機會只有一半左右。
但是如果五個數值之中,同時有三種是「不正常」的,那麼100人之中,就只有不到一人,堪稱「異界人」了。
