EdTech has significantly changed how information is accessed, from e-learning platforms and student engagement tools in the classroom to skill development and continuous learning options for higher education.
EdTech has played a vital role in revolutionising the way information is accessed, from e-learning platforms to student engagement tools in the classroom to skill development and continuous learning options for higher education.
Furthermore, the beneficial government policies and technological breakthroughs brought about by widespread internet usage and the introduction of 5G have hastened the sector’s change.
There is little question that the new National Education Policy will result in considerable educational reforms in 2023. (NEP).
There have been a number of concentrated policy advances in school education that have been built with tech enabled solutions in mind, with the goal of driving digital literacy and inclusion in terms of access to excellent learning techniques.
We’ve compiled a list of 2023 educational trends that will make learning more flexible, accessible, and interesting for students and teachers alike.
The following are the top five trends that will have a significant influence on education in 2023 and beyond:
Virtual reality and augmented reality
Technology is evolving, and we have entered a new era in which augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) are gaining popularity. Children now have a space where they can grasp hard ideas and get practical learning experiences in low-risk virtual worlds thanks to virtual reality and augmented reality technology. STEM-related programmes, simulations of medical procedures, arts and humanities resources, technical education, augmented reality, and virtual reality all have the potential to improve it. The second reason why virtual reality and augmented reality technologies are on their way to become one of the most promising contributions to the “Edtech” area is their ability to impart knowledge in unique and more exciting ways online.
Growth of Real and AI in tandem
AI, or artificial intelligence, can converse with people and aid them. It has the potential to transform a variety of industries, including education, and to address some of the most important issues confronting education today by providing fresh ways to teaching and learning. AI tools and technologies may give advantages such as speedier paper grading, personalised training, intelligent content distribution, and student access to tutoring programmes or AI-based intelligent tutoring systems (ITS). It is critical to recognise that AI should be focussed on people. A combination of teacher participation and AI will be required in the future to provide pupils with a sustainable and high-quality education.
Personalizing learning for each student’s skills, needs, abilities, and interests is another simple yet effective and creative way to learning. This facilitates in the development of a learning plan tailored to the student. The main principle behind offering personalised learning is that each child learns in a different way and at a different pace. With personalised learning, each student is given a “learning plan” based on their learning style, past knowledge, talents, and interests. It contradicts the ‘one size fits all’ mindset that pervades most schools. The designed plan is project-based to guarantee that the student receives hands-on learning on the specified topics and that they are anticipated to learn as they progress through their schooling.
Emphasis will be on holistic learning
Because of shifting educational environments, the emphasis is now on supporting a child’s whole and holistic development so that they can grow up to be responsible adults with the necessary skill sets. Instructors are increasingly stressing the holistic learning approach to education, which prioritises academic performance while also preparing children to face life’s challenges. Holistic education has various advantages. Students are provided the resources they need to improve their academic performance while also developing the soft skills necessary for a successful professional career. One of the numerous benefits of holistic learning is that it improves academic accomplishment, mental and emotional health, and problem-solving abilities.
The Entrepreneurial Mindset in Education
There has been a lot of buzz in recent years about introducing entrepreneurship into schools. Instructors plan lectures and workshops to assist students acquire an entrepreneurial mentality and outlook as early as possible. This curriculum attempts to develop entrepreneurial knowledge, skills, attitudes, conduct, and drive in a way that ensures entrepreneurial success while also increasing the student’s employability in the future workforce. The covid-pandemic has been a learning experience for educators and politicians, and it has set a precedent for the Indian educational system’s ability to deal with future crises. Notwithstanding the massive shift brought about by technology and new governmental reforms such as the NEP, EdTech will play an important role in society and serve as a stable pillar for the future generation. It is time to celebrate the creative breakthroughs in education that technology is providing, and to look forward to a prosperous and forward-thinking future.
