Education Technology has been witnessing a continuous and dynamic change within the past few years. Both the Teaching and the Learning models are constantly in flux for effective outcomes. Innovative technologies have brought incremental changes in the way education is delivered and received.
Breakthrough technologies are making a considerable impact on the teaching and learning methodologies from self-learning to blended-learning to flipped classroom approaches to hybrid learning models.
Online learning (eLearning) has become an important part of the education process/system. Online Learning brings multiple benefits for online learning and student centric engagement in order to improve the teaching and learning process.
The following are the current trends in Education Technology:
a) Collaborative learning:
Online Learning incorporating the innovative trends in education technology has made it possible to stay connected for both students and teachers within the ecospace. Students, Teachers and Parents can connect, discuss and enact upon situations collaboratively, thus fostering collaborative learning approach which is gaining prominence.
When students team up to work on a problem/assignment/project, they build their collaborative skills, which improves their understanding and increases engagement.
eLearning includes collaboration with features to discuss and share, thus narrowing the gap between teachers and students than in traditional classroom settings.
While teachers have become more accessible, students have opportunities to interact with their peers and build their interpersonal skills.
b) Smart learning:
The use of smart devices, especially mobile-based learning (mLearning) outside the classroom environment in eLearning is growing in popularity, where students can learn anytime and anywhere at their convenience-both in pace and time.
Designing mobile-first responsive content is on high rise and with online learning it is expected to be a convenient method-in delivering and receiving the learning process.
With offline reading capabilities, internet connection is no longer an issue too. The rise of eBooks with enriched digital features are enhancing the learning experiences.
More and more educational institutions are embracing and adopting mobile learning into their learning ecosystems, benefiting both teachers and students alike.
c) Social Media Learning:
The elevation of Social Media platforms as a part of the learning process to turn it into a powerful communication tool for further enhancing the education system is being embraced by educational institutions, enabling students to interact with their peers and faculty team.
Students can, not only share images and videos with their friends and followers, but, with the social media features embedded in the eBooks, they can also share learning materials/projects. Sharing links and comments will enhance online learning experience.
Incorporating social media in learning modules is building a culture of collaboration, increasing engagement leading to enriched learning experiences.
d) Interactive learning:
By welcoming technology in the classroom, classrooms have been made lively and interactive. eBooks are further encouraging the interactivity of the students with course lessons made available in digital rich formats.
Interactive learning with the increased use of digital technology in the online learning process is taking the front seat.
e) Learning Analytics:
With the advent of rise in technology, data management has been relatively been in a comfortable state and hence the associated analytics. Teachers can have minute details of their students in measuring their performance and defining personalised paths for their overall improvement in their academic scores and understanding of the concepts, in the learning process.
Homework, assignments, projects etc, can be assigned by the teachers to the entire class at once and can evaluate them in an automated manner.
With automation in place, teachers can focus more on students’ course modules and offer in-depth guidance.
With analytics in place, online learning models are enabled to measure a students’ engagement and performance.
f) Immersive learning:
The making use of simulation in the Education System in the form of classroom learning experience for students mixed with augmented reality & virtual reality has brought a tremendous change, in facilitating learners to enhance their learning abilities and capabilities.
Learning has become much more immersive with hands-on compelling experiences thus paving digital learning to new dimensions.
g) Gamification learning:
Gamification in classrooms is being used in different forms such as leaderboards, reward points, badges, stickers etc, thus surely ensuring increase in participation, engagement and competition within the learners.
Gamification also results in improved performance and increased retention as students become actively involved in the classroom learning process, to increase their scores and leaderboard rankings.
Gamification boosts motivation as it incentivizes students to learn, practice and improve their overall learning process.
Enhanced learning models with a mix of gamification techniques will further facilitate, to evolve the learning landscape with innovative technologies, in the coming future.
With evolving digital technologies and hence learning, data security is at an all-time high. Cloud storage usage which has become the new norm of the day comes at high risk and is prone to prove disastrous at times. While a shared environment paves a way for the data to be easily accessible for everyone, it also comes with a ransom of being hacked.
Educational institutions must incorporate cyber security measures in their digital learning environments. Best data security measures need to be implemented and put in place to protect the online data of the students and their interests.
