5 education trends to watch in 2023
By India Today Web Desk: Today the focus has shifted away from conventional education. Various trends have been used in the education sector in the past with varying degrees of success, but the trends that have developed recently have fundamentally changed the dynamics of the sector and are here to stay for the foreseeable future.
The boundaries of time and space no longer apply to the modern education sector. From primary to higher education, online and cloud-based delivery learning platforms are becoming more common due to the exponential acceleration of the digital transformation in the education sector.
The value of this digital learning industry in India is expected to increase to USD 30 billion in the next 10 years at the current rate of disruption of the established education system. Edtechs are New Age schools.
New ways of teaching and learning have emerged. New careers have taken shape and education has also been transformed, giving shape to a variety of career opportunities.
1. METAVERSE MEETS REALITY
The technology industry has come a long way from a mere computer in the first phase to the interactive sleek smart phones in the second and now graduating to the 3D highly interactive augmented reality.
It is noteworthy to know that CBSE has partnered with Meta for the application of Metaverse in education. Online learning will be more real with the help of metaverse, which involves the concept of Augmented and Virtual Reality (AR & VR). In the post-pandemic environment, Metaverse can be a tremendous resource for distance learning and operations, effectively supporting remote operations and training and advancing the sustainability agenda.
The availability of accessible, affordable technology for all and the skills needed to create and consume immersive entertainment are just two of the many obstacles that come with this huge potential. By overcoming these obstacles, the education community will be able to create a resilient educational ecosystem that will be able to withstand future global disruptions such as COVID.
2. IMPETUS ON SPORTS, ESPECIALLY FOR WOMEN
Earlier, sports was an alternative career option, but lately and in the last two or three years, women have actively come forward in sports and chosen it as a full-time career. Also in school education, sport is an integral part of learning and in the coming years schools will also focus on utilizing sport as a component of and as a main subject.
3. SKILL DEVELOPMENT
After the implementation of NEP 2020, skill development programs conducted at schools have taken a new shape. At every level of education, children are introduced to new skills. Currently, ‘Skill India’ mission is working in full swing 24×7. India has the responsibility to train about 104.62 million new entrants to the workforce in the next four years, by 2023. Today’s technological advances permeate all elements of our lives, including our work and personal lives. Therefore, a professional with a more technical skill set will do better in this atmosphere. Therefore, the year 2023 will see an influx of technology-driven learning skills.
4. GREEN TECHNOLOGY
One of the biggest problems facing the world is the deterioration of soil quality and erosion of its nutritional value, leading to unhealthy vegetative growth. Children are already learning about soil conservation, but the year 2023 will see an advanced version of learning and working towards green technology and agri-technology. This will help children learn from an early age the use of technology and science to reduce human impact on the natural environment. Therefore, it will lead to sustainable development.
Ranked as the third largest FinTech market globally with an expected market size of $150 billion by 2025, India has the potential to reshape the landscape of financial services and financial inclusion in fundamental ways, thereby providing an abundance of opportunities for more integrated learning curricula for open up students. can contribute to the underlying demand growth of India’s ever-evolving digital infrastructure.
After the pandemic there was a shift in the mindset of people and so the learning system evolved.
The 21st century skill that promoted cooperation is finally taking shape and getting kids to work together. Very soon, under the NEP 2020, the competition will decrease at the secondary and higher secondary level, making it healthy and bringing in a sense of teamwork for the betterment of every child to build a better and wiser nation.
Let me conclude by saying, no matter how much technology learns to take over, what remains at heart is empathy, kindness and the virtue of giving back to society.
