10 INCREDIBLE WAYS TECHNOLOGY WILL CHANGE EDUCATION BY 2028
TECHNOLOGY and education go hand in hand. After all, there’s only so much that we can learn by repeating lists from memory or staring at words on a blackboard. This is especially true in today’s day and age, when technology has established itself across every part of our daily lives.The statistics highlight this, with the educational technology (edtech) industry set to reach a value of $252 billion by 2020. Even as far back as 2013, a whopping 86% of teachers believed that it was either “important” or “absolutely essential” to use technology in the classroom.But how exactly will technology change education in the next ten years or so? You’re about to find out. One of the most exciting blends of technology and education comes to us via the use of virtual reality headsets to take students on virtual field trips. No longer constrained by the laws of time and space, they could visit anywhere in the world and at any time period in history. If you think that smartphone apps are useful now, you wait until you see what the future has to bring. As designers and developers get better and better and we come up with new ways to use technology in education, expect to see an explosion in the quality and quantity of apps that are available to us.
