Emerging Education Technology Trends to Watch

Education and technology have always evolved connected at the hip – and technology has constantly informed the manner in which we teach. However, we are a long way from the finish line of history in education innovation and there is a lot of change still ongoing, in fields from machine learning and AI, to cutting edge analytics. As educators re-evaluate the learning experience, we trust it will be essential to also reshape educational spaces to help this development.

This implies that education innovation will turn out to be better, increasingly accessible, and more affordable for your classroom in the near future. 

Mixed Reality

A developing trend that will keep on changing the educational domain is mixed reality (MR) — a range between augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR).

AR utilises a cell phone or headset to overlay content or pictures onto the physical condition (such as Pokémon GO). VR completely immerses users in virtual reproductions (ordinarily with a headset and PC-generated condition). Mixed reality is a mixture of the two.

Specifically, MR is appropriate for experiential learning. It can empower users to visit places they may, some way or another, not have the option to get to, such as art galleries, archaic exploration sites, a refugee camp, or Mount Everest, as well as spots that are totally out of reach, for example, onboard the Titanic, the Mesozoic, or even Mars.

Learning Platforms

Online learning platforms are intended to make learning more convenient for students. It is not new, but it’s constantly adapting. There will be a greater amount of an accentuation on developing content that is responsive rather than versatile and on making micro-learning experiences that can synchronise over numerous devices and give students the flexibility to learn on their preferred device. That is why GIBS facilitates its educational programmes online. Our online learning platform is advantageous and easy-to-use and accompanies an encouraging group of educators and peers to help egg you on when you need a motivation boost.

Advanced Analytics

Big data and advanced analytics have also been around for some time, but educational institutions haven’t yet benefited from everything they can do with the information they gather on student reviews and faculty research. This information can be harnessed, analysed and set up as a regular occurrence to draw in students and increase enrollment.

The following influx of cutting edge analytics will, in addition to other things, enable bespoke, customised student experience, with educators taking into account individual learning styles and competency levels of the student. 

With cutting edge analytics, our team of academics can tailor offerings to their target student populace, better understanding measurements for student achievement and even pinpoint those who are battling to realise their full potential.

Artificial Intelligence

AI also tackles big data, utilising machine learning to settle on predictions and decisions. Pretty much every industry is being changed by AI, and education is no exception. It holds incredible potential to customise education as the innovation is adopted in the years to come.

AI can help with the analysis of big data indexes for predictive modelling and decision-making, which can also make increasingly customised learning experiences. AI works with institutional information to help schools and colleges better understand retention rates, intercession needs, and program execution.

GIBS Online, a leader in education innovation, takes pride in making sure that delegates are up-to-date on the latest disruptive technologies and trends taking place in our global village.
