The iPads, tablets, and smartphones are the ‘present’ and also will play a significant role in the future too. The iPad did not even exist about a few years back, but are now in a huge demand and will continue to be so. The future is all about the access and also the everywhere, anywhere learning along with collaboration, locally as well as globally. Learning and teaching processes will go more social. The schools of the future generation may have the traditional unit of students. Some of the changes have already taken its wing with the exposure of educational apps, mobile learning sources or say e-learning programs, massive open online courses (MOOC’ s), etc.
Below are some of the top educational trends or education technologies that would put a new light in the school system and change the face of learning and teaching the system.
Future technologies and trends in education
Technology always remains at the forefront of the social education. It is pushing the capabilities of learning and the school system to new levels. All this is mainly possible with the implementation of some of the new tools and methods of which some of them are given below-
- Mobile Learning or E-learning
The mobile learning apps, structure more information to the students about the subjects and chapters for all the classes including the NCERT etc. The mobile learning apps are said to be a useful resource also for the aspirants who appear for the competitive and civil service examinations like UPSC, IIT, JEE, GMAT, etc. They cover all the topics and moreover, the apps, have online content and also video lectures that helps a student in critical problem-solving skills.
Consider the Byju’s-The learning App, one of India’s best-known education app in the technology and education platform. The apps serve several friendly features and attributes that are making students fall in love with the learning. This education app is incorporated with 1000+ of video lectures from India’s best trainers and teachers. The app fosters adaptive learning techniques so as to build the thinking and learning capabilities of students.
- Virtual Reality or Augmented Reality
This is one of the whole new technologies in the education system. And also the implications of this technology are known to be enormous. The Virtual Reality technique is the implementation of the three-dimensional way of learning in the classrooms. It consists of a device which enables a student to visualize the topics and images in a three-dimensional arena.
The motion and the pressure sensors incorporated within these devices VR and AR make it more relevant for activity-based learning. It is also known as virtual-based learning.
- Digitalization of Classrooms
The classrooms are going digital these days. The old blackboard way of learning is fading away. This change is due to the implementation of new equipment and tools like interactive whiteboards, educational games, digital projectors, video-based lessons, open courseware and e-learning.
Biometric technology is used to recognize the humans based on the specific behavioral or the physical traits. In the coming future, this kind of technology can help the intelligent software to understand the emotional and physical state of children while learning in the classroom.
- 3D Printing Technology
This technology allows the students in transferring the digital information into a reality. At a point, the 3D labs is going to be created in the same way as that of the computer labs are like today. The 3D Printing technology will provide students an eye on detail into the digital world which enhances them to users to build logic modules or the programs.
