Interactive learning is hot and happening. It allows educators to engage with their students and vice versa, which fuels better learning outcomes. In order to stay on top of the latest trends, we are bringing to you the last trends in edtech.
Here are the three key trends in education technology.
Focus on the experience: Teachers are determined to improve learning by getting students more active and more engaged. Flipping the classroom from a passive to an interactive education environment is now the reality in many schools. Educators are using a mix of techniques in the class, for example individual and group dynamics, team project work, digital content, video introductions, games, polls, messaging, 1 to 1 learning and small discussion groups. Collaborative learning environments use edtech to equip students with the skills they need in the future.
Managing and sharing content is now critical: The quantity of educational content is exploding. It is increasingly multimedia-based and difficult to manage. Creating content to inspire, share knowledge and interact is now part of everyday life for many teachers. Technology that allows teachers and students to easily engage with these new content formats are game-changing in the learning environment.
Remote learning provides new opportunities: This is a trend which involves mainly higher education. Providing high-quality remote learning capabilities has become a “must-have” for many institutions. There is also a growing need to collaborate with other schools, faculties or groups across the country or around the globe.
Teachers want to teach with tech and not worry about tech. Allowing teachers as well as students to share, interact and engage in a virtual classroom, even from outside the building, is all about having the right technology at hand.
