And, in the times when everything is technology-driven, education can never be left untouched. As the world evolves, multiple trends emerge and disappear in every industry due to technological intervention, and all of those come with a plethora of opportunities for the business aspirants.
Here are some of the trends in education technology that you should consider while starting your educational business.
Decoding the ‘Coding and Robotics’
Today, a concept like ‘Coding Bootcamp’ is no longer an alien term for Indian teens, thanks to the brands that have observed the inclination of students towards programming skills and coding. With the increasing demand for robotics and software, coding programs and programming are someof the hottest trends in education technology. There are different types of coding bootcamps that are attracting students from all across the world. Those people who have gained a mastery over this subject are deciding to do it whole heartedly as they see the scope of the subject.
‘Gamification’ to Change the Game
The process of gamifying the education is gaining a lot of popularity among the millennial. Applying game-like principles in educational concepts is heading towards making education an interactive and fun way of acquiring knowledge. As more and more consumers are inclining towards such a new and vibrant concept, the education industry has picked up the pace and is on a roll.
There are so many online platforms and mobile applications that are picking up the emerging trend of gamification and helping students in achieving their goals. Mobile applications like Udemy, Tinycards, and Blinkist etc are earning great revenues and helping in enhancing the role of technology in education.
Accessing Information with Device Mesh
Device mesh is one of the hottest trends in education these days. It simply means how one accesses application and how information, as well as how one communicates with one another, travels across the internet on both personal and organisational levels. This indcates how a student can access the same information from different platforms as he/she switches between multiple devices, both at home and school. Teachers are looking for programs, which allow device mesh so that students can access information from anywhere. It is something like cloud technology that could be specially designed for educational purposes.
Digital Assessment is the Key
Evaluation is an important part of education. But evaluation has much more to it than just checking the theoretical knowledge of students. With technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI), personal assessment of students is now possible. There is an increasing demand for such tools and systems that can eliminate the limitations of traditional assessment techniques. Online platforms such as online examination systems, photo capture quality etc have generated a lot of opportunities for entrepreneurs in the field of technology to explore the education sector.
Personalised Learning to Continue
Personalised learning includes both face to face teaching as well as technology-based instructions, which ultimately results in better performances of students and ensures maximum retention. This way, classroom teaching is taken to the next level by keeping essential elements of classroom teaching and amalgamating it with technology.
