Top 3 Educational Technology Trend to Look for
As students spend more time increasingly online, it is essential to address incorporate innovative technologies in the learning process.
FREMONT, CA: Immersive learning through virtual reality, digital lessons personalized for each student, online games that teach important information have made learning is fun. At the beginning of the 21rst century, these things seemed like dreams or far-off fantasies. Now, technology has emerged to make these and other dreams a reality in classrooms. Here are the top educational technology trends to look for in 2020.
According to reports, by 2021, over fifteen percent of schools in the United States will have a set of virtual reality (VR) classroom kits. Worldwide, about 70 million students will experience immersive learning through virtual reality. Students benefit significantly from VR’s potential; to make theoretical information into an actual experience. VR kits allow students to travel inside the human body. This gives students a deeper, richer understanding of how a particular system works or how the human body fights off disease.
Gamification of Learning
Game-based learning is nothing new. However, gamification was often dismissed as frivolous in the previous years. Now, educators increasingly turn to game elements – including interactive video games to motivate and inspire students. Game-based learning takes away the pressure and anxiety of earning a better grade. It also shows students that learning is an exploratory process rather than mere memorization. Incorporating game-like elements can be as seamless as replacing some grades with learning badges.
Artificial Intelligence Learning
Students learn best when lessons and activities are customized to their individual requirements. However, it’s impossible for a teacher to fully tailor a learning experience for each student in the classroom. From prep to grading to after-school responsibilities, teachers are already loaded with several works. That’s where AI learning comes into play. AI learning apps meet each student where they are, both in terms of their skill level and their learning style. It helps students learn at their own pace by showing them when they need to practice skills. It also keeps track of all of the things a student has mastered.
