5 EdTech trends in 2020

2020 is here. The last few years have witnessed a drastic and dramatic change in the learning model. The way students are being taught today is way different from earlier. Hail Technology!

Technology has brought various changes in the way education is delivered. From self-learning to web-based classrooms, we have seen technology, making a considerable impact on the teaching methodologies. With many benefits to offer, digital learning is one segment which has become an important part of the Indian education system. Schools and colleges are trying to implement the best of technology to improve this teaching-learning process. Here are the list of current trends in educational technology that is embracing and making learning a fun thing to do!

Custom Learning

Advancement in EdTech has offered teachers a wide range of content. One can't deny that students have become more device and tech-savvy and are exploring ways for fun learning and mediums that resonate with them. It might be solving a problem in a digital and modern learning environment, finding new ways to understand things through games or exploring the world through VR devices. Despite all the possibilities, it makes our job easier. With automation and differentiation, it is getting better as it takes less work and time to set students on the right path. It has helped students on their learning journeys. 

Student-Centered Learning

It runs on a simple concept – Passion drives motivation. When we identify students' interest, it becomes easier to build and deliver the right skills and knowledge in the right way. 2021 will see a strengthened focus on building lessons which are not just based on students' interest but also their personal learning goals. As they will learn what is in their interest, they will be able to retain in their memory for a long. 

Adaptive Learning

Adaptive learning systems use the data to adjust learning processes for students depending upon many factors. From medium to pace, it is another way of personalized learning. The goal of the adaptive learning methodology is to provide the customized content to the right audience and the right time. With this innovative method of learning, teachers can engage students and can create experiences. 

Emerging Technology

The goal here is to facilitate more innovative and interesting teaching methods. If used wisely, the emerging technology will give access to cutting edge learning experiences without ever leaving your classroom or study table. Imagine learning about Seven Wonders of the World with a realistic simulation of the monuments. According to a survey, 82% of the teachers think that education through technology prepares students for the future. So, next time when you think of emerging technology, think of all the acronyms – AI, VR and AR. 

Automated Schools

Many educational institutes have already adopted the concept of automated schools. They are flexible and interactive. More smart tools are coming up that includes technologies like face recognition, autonomous data analysis, ERPs and automatic administration tools. Automation not only helps in learning processes but also contributes to saving expenses on infrastructure and manpower.

In years to come, technology will play a big role in this continuous shift. The technologies and instruments that we are using are evolving and becoming more data-driven. This doesn't mean that education will become robotic, but the teachers will be able to build lessons depending upon the trends and the needs of the students.
