What's in Store for Education in the Future?

With AI setting in, the output of education sector will grow multi-fold and the Indian economy will likely witness a momentous change in the coming years.

By Reetika Bose Feature Writer

A significant driver for educational change is population growth and the demographic profile. More than 50% of India’s population is under the age of 25 and by 2020, India will have one of the youngest populations in the world, with an average age of 29 years, and India will outpace China in the next ten years as the country with the largest tertiary-age in 2020. The OECD predicts that in 2020, 200 million of the world’s 25-34 year olds will be university graduates and 40% of these will be from China and India representing a huge proportion of the global talent pool.

Technology trends shaping the future of Education 

As a Teacher to discover and be a Door Opener for the students in a rapidly globalising world, it is important to follow the emerging 5 Technological Trends that are shaping the educational landscape in the next few years.

Big Data

Big Data, combined with predictive analytics, has great potential to personalize learning and bring students up to speed in exactly the areas where they’re falling behind.

Virtual and Augmented Reality

The absolute Matrix, ladies and gentlemen, is already there though a really low-level version, but it is here.

As an example of one of AR’s educational applications, the Art gallery, to view each piece through our phone (such as the Samsung VR Gear Handset) to juxtapose the real-life artwork with a complementary piece of art stored in the cloudis possible now.

The Semantic Web and Business Analytics

The web has evolved tremendously since its creation, having moved incrementally from Web 1.0 to where we are today, Web 4.0 and everything is going to be connected.”

Extreme BYOD

The driving force behind the movement of bring your own device (BYOD) is that actually “everybody wants their own individualized workspace.” As educators we need to support students on their BYOD possessions, also helping them make distinctions between their real lives and their digital lives.

Transmedia and Design Thinking

Transmedia storytelling is underutilized in education, as the greatest portal into the multi-universe we have. If used properly, transmedia would give educators and students the opportunity to tell stories in a variety of ways and span the gap between critical thinking and creative thinking, forming a new and exciting “creatical thinking.”

Aditya Malik, Founder, Talentedge said,” Online Education, as the future of India, goes beyond the realms of secondary, post-secondary and tertiary education. It also includes courses and modules for competitive exam preparation, professional skill enhancement, and other non-academic subjects.”

“Education in India has undoubtedly & continually been shaped and reshaped by technology. We are constantly finding evidence that more and more working professionals and college students in India are focusing on their skill enhancement than ever before. This growing trend of opting online courses by the youth has changed the entire narrative of the education sphere. This has challenged companies across the globe to push their limits and find tech-based solutions in learning methodologies and new ways of acquiring skills and competencies, said the Founder.

He further gave an insight about the learning framework of EdTech Companies which, in the long run will revolutionise the Edtech space.  

“A large chunk of the employed population in India is unable to move forward due to lack of skills, while employers find it difficult to select right candidates for the right job. To bridge this gap between employers and employees, Ed-tech companies including Talentedge, use AL & MI, virtual learning programs and conceptual approaches to provide quality education that can create employment for the current workforce, ultimately resulting in changing the job landscape in the coming years”, added Mr. Malik.

With AI setting in, the output of education sector will grow multi-fold and the Indian economy will likely witness a momentous change in the coming years.
