5 DIGITAL TRENDS WILL SHAPE EDUCATION!

Even after the technological advancement, rather than preparing the youth to move the technology forward, the education sector has remained hesitant to adopt digital trends.

That is the sole reason why progress remains hesitant and slow in education but it has yet not stopped. Schools and colleges have started introducing new courses, and the industry would soon transform.

The education sector has always been the last to make extensive changes holding onto old teaching practices. But with digital transformation in education, teachers are incorporating new advanced features.

 

1. Internet Of Things

It’s nothing new but IoT has to be the first in our list because of the advancements in technology. Previously, many educators have focused on aspects like energy efficient schools and colleges when IoT is talked about.

The benefits are great; hypothetically speaking, IoT can enable a student’s teacher to share their test results with parents in real-time, involving them to see potential issues they may face in the classroom or at home.

The real-time process can automatically track when (task) homework is completed, or what the time stamp of its completion is and even gather data about the time it takes the students to complete the assignment.

IBI Operating System is an exclusive feature enabling students, parents and schools to leverage the extensive control over their tasks independently under our advanced sub-features.

 

2. Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality

Augmented Reality is the future, but it’s not sure if any school or campus is planning to take any courses for it. But in the near future, you will start to see more and more schools taking an interest in using AR and VR to aid students to foresee things like travel, history and even input program development.

 

3. Increase In Security
 

Schools nowadays are keeping their security secure by installing large gates to keep strangers and potential threats outside. 

With the increase in digital technologies, the need for better high security is becoming important in the K-12 arena. A report by Securly on ‘Child's Research History’ has concerns regarding the safety of children in classrooms and are incorporating new countermeasures.

But with digital transformation, more threats will always appear because anything connected over the internet through WiFi or by other means will be prone to get affected by cyberbullying, spamming, malware and much more.

 

4. Personalized Learning

Learning can be personalized now, whether it's schools or individual students to mold education as to their needs. There is a concept called blended learning that puts the responsibility on the student as less involvement of the teacher is present and more discovery method of learning is adopted.

Blended learning is a new interactive method where students can demonstrate how they can control the aesthetics of their learning by making decisions according to their intuitive level and thinking skills.

The same applies to adaptive learning where students make critical decisions such as the task to be completed in the timeframe and the path chosen. Adaptive learning involves collecting data about students behavior as they counter and overcome problems and later provide feedback.

With student-centered approach to teaching, IBI shifts the focus from the teacher's needs to the student's. A ‘passive’ learning occurs at home, and then solve problems and apply the new knowledge in the classroom, they get less frustration with their homework and free class time for active learning. >>>Learn more HERE.

 

5. Redesigned Learning Spaces

Educators have realized the scope of un-cluttered classrooms to create collaborative-friendly spaces for eLearning. These classes include SMARTboards instead of chalkboards and pods of SMARTdesks rather than individual seating structures. Students are taken on virtual field trips instead of essential book reading.

The re-structure of learning space is designed in a way to integrate technology as well. Students aren't familiar with these, but they will understand and learn how to use them to provide a good impact on learning.
