5 biggest trends in education technology in the near future

In the past, various trends in the education sector have been launched with varying degrees of success, but the trends brought to the sector in recent years have completely changed the dynamics in the sector and will certainly continue for the foreseeable future.

From primary to higher education, digital transformation in education has accelerated tremendously and has seen a shift towards online and cloud-based delivery platforms.

Apart from that, the transformation also led to a dramatic change in the relationship between adult learners and continuing education providers such as Edtechs, coaching colleges and universities.

Edtechs are the new School 2.0 and with the current rate of disruption of traditional learning, the value of this sector in India is expected to grow to $30 billion in the next 10 years. Much of the credit goes to mobile technology, cloud services and virtual reality, opening up new possibilities for accessible, immersive learning.

KEY TECHNOLOGIES THAT WILL DISRUPT EDUCATION IN THE SOON FUTURE ARE:

1. LIFELONG LEARNING THROUGH SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES

The education landscape today is vastly different, even from two years ago. At the rapid pace of technological advancement, education providers and learners are moving towards a continuous education model – subscription services.

Another driver is the emergence of online learning aggregators such as DBMCI’s digital platform eGurukul, which, in addition to traditional coaching lessons, offers accessible learning lessons to learners seeking flexible ways to fit education into their lives and shifts online education into the predominant model of education. .

This is one of the trends that is here to stay and is designed to perfectly match the changing needs of companies.

2. A MIXTURE OF REAL, AI, AR AND VR

With time, we get used to absorbing information in ultra-fast, bite-sized and eye-catching chunks. The mix of Reality, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) will impact every field of human activity and education is certainly no exception.

These tools can get better at any task and will be used to provide more personalized forms of education or distance learning.

3. NANO LEARNING

This learning describes a new EdTech concept. In this transformative technology trend, students can get an instant source of learning through ultra-bite-ready lessons, right when and where they need them.

Nano-learning is still popular, but will undoubtedly grow in popularity in the future as it effortlessly meets society’s need for ways to transfer knowledge and skills in today’s hustle and bustle.

4. PERSONALIZED EDUCATION

Gone are the days when one teacher was assigned to at least 50 kids and parents didn’t mind either. Personalized education will become the next new standard as classrooms are now much more diverse and complex, and access to technology helps to better meet the needs of each student.

Technology tools can help educators deliver differentiated learning experiences beyond the established curriculum.

5. GAMIFICATION

Edutainment is a term that has been making the rounds in the industry for quite some time and effectively plastering its presence in the industry. Learning while playing educational games provides an experiential approach to knowledge acquisition that keeps students hooked on learning and encourages greater multisensory engagement.

Paralleling evolution is now a necessity, not an option when adapting to the evolving technological trends is the reality for the future future of education. In the future, these trends will no doubt grow in popularity, as learning today is not only instant and modular, but becomes even more addictive!
