Key educational technology trends in 2023
Traditional education is no longer the center of attention. The modern education industry is no longer bound by time or space. Various trends in the education sector have been deployed in the past with varying degrees of success, but the trends that have emerged in the past few years have completely changed the sector’s dynamics and are undoubtedly here to stay for the foreseeable future. The digital transformation in the education sector has accelerated immeasurably, causing a shift to online and cloud-based delivery platforms from primary to higher education. Edtechs are the new School 2.0, and the value of this sector in India is expected to grow to USD 30 billion in the next ten years at the current rate of disruption of the traditional learning process. Mobile technology, cloud services and virtual reality all deserve credit for opening new avenues for accessible, immersive learning.
Technologies that will improve the education sector:
1. Learn for life through subscription services
Even two years ago, the state of education was very different. With the speed at which technology is evolving, both educators and students are embracing subscription services as an ongoing model of education. Another factor is the rise of online learning aggregators like Learnbay, which, in addition to providing traditional coaching programs, offer accessible learning classes to students looking for convenient methods to fit education into their schedules and have made online education the norm. It is a trend that is here to stay and is designed to perfectly suit the changing needs of businesses.
Books, blogs, podcasts and videos of various kinds are all at your fingertips, without limitations. In short, as long as we use the Internet for good, it has freed us all and removed all forms of confinement. Distance education promotes equality, and disadvantaged children can receive education at a lower cost. Finally, e-books and digital resources for academic institutions have offered limitless opportunities. Although traditional books may seem irreplaceable, e-books also have advantages. For example, PDF materials can include multimedia to visually illustrate concepts taught in a lesson. Alternatively, include useful links. This method is especially attractive to the younger generation.
2. A combination of real, AI, AR, AND VR
Over time, we’ve become accustomed to absorbing information in ultra-fast, bite-sized, attention-grabbing chunks. The combination of Reality, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) will impact every aspect of human activity, including education. These tools can improve whatever task they are given and will be used to provide more personalized forms of education or distance learning.
This lesson explains a brand new EdTech idea. Students can access an instant source of knowledge through ultra-bite-sized classes exactly when and where they need it, thanks to this transformational technology trend. As nano-learning seamlessly meets society’s need for ways to transfer information and skill in today’s hustle and bustle, its popularity is sure to increase in the future. Students can now submit projects and projects online, share thoughts with classmates and receive feedback as a result of the technological revolution.
4. Personal learning
The days when parents didn’t really care about one instructor being assigned to at least 50 students are long gone. As classrooms become more varied and complex and technology becomes more readily available, individualized education is becoming the new standard. Beyond the prescribed curriculum, technological tools can help teachers provide students with diverse learning experiences. This teacher-centered approach was common for many years. But with the advent of online learning environments and applications, education has taken on a new dimension. The modern teacher functions more as a coach, an example to follow, and a moderator of the educational process.
The phrase “edutainment” has been making the rounds in the industry for quite some time, successfully announcing its existence. Playing educational games while studying introduces an immersive method of information acquisition that keeps students interested in their studies and promotes greater multimodal participation. The fact for the upcoming future of education is that keeping up with innovation is now a need, not an option, to adapt to the growing technology trends. These trends are sure to gain popularity in the future as learning power becomes not only fast and modular but also addictive.
Cybersecurity has been a concern for top state ed-tech, but it appears they are short on funds. When we consider the interactive nature of technology, its influence on education becomes even more significant. Learners can read text, view images and watch videos at the same time. As a result, young people have a strong desire to explore new frontiers. Collaboration and communication are also encouraged through digital learning tools.
Students can now exchange links, videos and lecture notes on a single platform. Furthermore, they choose contemporary education as learning by doing and research is the most effective technique for understanding. No one can deny that technology is an inevitable component of a high-quality education system. Provided you use apps responsibly, they are a powerful tool that enhances learning in many ways. Edtech platforms can open countless doors and encourage critical thinking.
