In a world where digital technology is reshaping education, it’s not enough to just accept it. We need to adopt new and innovative ways of learning so that our kids have the best opportunity to flourish. That’s why we are excited about the rising tide of education tech. Education tech has a lot going for it. It’s an industry that’s in its infancy, but already it has the potential to change the way education is done by enabling independent study, virtual and augmented reality (AR) learning, and collaboration across disciplines. Let’s take a look at some of the most impactful developments in education technology over the past few years: 1. Online classrooms: As class sizes continue to expand, so do student demand for online learning platforms. Varying internet speed, online storage options, and mobile accessibility have all contributed to a growth in online learning as an alternative to face-to-face instruction. In fact, recent studies show that more than one in five Americans now attend public school via internet route instead of face-to-face due to limited internet access options or lack of skills.
The Rise of Online Curriculum
In the past couple of years, there has been a huge shift in the way that students learn. With the rise of online education, students no longer require a constant source of constant reminder. No longer do they have to maintain a physical schedule with a teacher in order to learn. Instead, they can concentrate on their reading, writing, and speaking until they are ready to go to class. In short, online learning has made learning more collaborative and open-ended. This has led to a rise in online courses, which has also led to a rise in interest across both students and instructors in virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR) learning. This may have significant impact on the availability of virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR) learning across the board, not just in specific subjects such as climate change or data analysis, but in all areas of learning.
Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR/AR) Learning
VR/AR is now a part of our daily lives. We are constantly in the process of “ProjectUV,” where we are actively using our mobile devices to create visual experiences. AR/VR is a combination of digital and visual capabilities, enabling users to experience content in new and interesting ways. You can search for an activity in VR or use your smartphone to create a guided tour of specific locations. You can also view photos and videos from your phone in VR or on an AR/VR device, so you don’t have to take a break from your favorite social media or other apps to take a look around.
A collaboration platform works like an online calendar, a workplace, and a workplace reality. It allows you to collaborate and create virtual and virtual reality (VR/AR) experiences across teams and locations. You can create and manage virtual and virtual reality (VR/AR) projects, assignments, and projects-in-the-realm (PIMs) using documentation and communication tools. This can be used to create virtual and virtual reality (VR/AR) courses, virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR) experiences, and more. Collaborative learning is key to a high-quality education, and collaboration platforms are a great way to make a full-time job of it.
Content networks are a way that educators and students can collaborate on projects, assignments, and other content experiences. Using these platforms, you can create and share digital and virtual reality (VR/AR) experiences, create and share lesson plans, and more. You can create and share virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR) training and product demonstrations, teach and learn new techniques, and more. Content networks have grown in popularity in the last few years, partly due to their ease of use and their wide range of tools and toolsets. Content networks have definitely grown in use as an alternative to face-to-face instruction, and they are now being used in more ways than ever before.
Connected Devices and Apps
The internet confines us to a digital single-screen world, but as we become more and more remote, connected devices and apps begin to follow. With the rise of smart home devices and the connected car, we are now being reminded that we live in a connected world. Not only is our virtual reality device (VR or AR) bearing down on us, but our handheld device is also being targeted by hackers and criminals. Cards and smart home devices are still the most common connected devices, but there are also smart home appliances, even typical appliances that aren’t connected to the internet. These are the most impactful developments in education tech.
Digital technology is changing education, and together it means new ways of learning. New digital platforms are emerging that allow students to become students, not just students in remedial courses. These new digital platforms are designed to help students learn, not to beFostering an open-minded, flexible, and creative culture requires an open-minded, flexible, and creative generation. Digital technology has the potential to shift the way education is done and change the way education is delivered. With this shift in the landscape, it’s critical that educators, researchers, and students have an up-to-date view of how technology is impacting the learning process.
