EdTech: Technology And Learning

The trend of focused content driven sites achieving success will probably continue until someone figures out the “secret” of engaging students across a variety of topic areas.

Access to different learning materials and resources is the biggest change coming towards Education Technology. We’ll see that students are no longer restricted in where they can find research information, homework help, or other academic support.

The future of edtech lies on replicating in-person training online. This will be done by using detailed analytics and automation to increase engagement and student accountability.

Educational organisations are looking for solutions that provide more fluid use, more customization, and actually make it easy for educators to incorporate new media and technologies into the learning space.

Ed Tech platforms in the enterprise market are beginning to start to shift into 3 distinct pillars: the Learning Experience Platform (think Netflix for Learning), the traditional Learning Management system and the Learning Record Store.

EdTech is at the perfect point to revolutionize the way learning occurs. Technology usage increases classroom dynamics while also increasing teaching tools to facilitate student comprehension.

Connecting students and educators with tools and information beyond the classroom to advance deeper learning. By connecting students, tutors and educators, learners can receive help whenever they may need it.

Micro learning is the best way forward as people have attention spans of less than that of a goldfish. Small chunks in nice visual formats drive higher engagement and better learning outcomes.

At last we’re seeing some of the amazing innovations long used in higher ed and secondary being thoughtfully and strategically brought into the elementary classroom to our ‘generation alphas’.

The future state of Education Technology is a focus on collaborative learning through anytime access. Whether rural or urban, students of all ages will be able to log in to learning 24/7.

WebRTC usage within the educational sector has become increasingly prevalent in recent years. Its ability to deliver knowledge through a more enhanced channel of communication enriches the learning experience for a large number of participants in a single click.

In the future, we’ll no longer be building programs for the masses, but rather building technology that enables learners to customize their own experience with individualized content.

Interest in VR for education is growing rapidly, and we will soon see educational VR content become even more interactive and effective as supplementary classroom learning material.

The future of Education Technology is Academic Social Networks (ASNs), for networking and knowledge sharing. Challenge is a lack of visibility. Future ASNs will have efficient workflows with enhanced profiles.
