by The Scalers Offshore Development Teams In India

What's in store for the future of education? In today's uncertain social, political, and economic situation, this is one of the main questions on the minds of education professionals across the globe. 

While technology will significantly contribute towards reshaping the education sector, what new trends can we expect in the coming years? Let's explore.

1. Interactive learning

EdTech or educational technology has gained significant momentum in recent times. And according to experts, this trend is only set to accelerate in the future. EdTech allows educational institutions to use digital tools to creating one-of-a-kind interactive learning experiences.

Through technologies such as mixed reality, simulation programs, and gamification, students can develop real-life skills like problem-solving, decision-making, and analytical thinking. And because these technologies make learning interesting and memorable, it also enhances the cognitive and psychomotor skills of the student.

2. Micro Pods

Micro-Pods or Home-school pods have become increasingly popular in recent times, owing to the pandemic. These pods are small groups, usually 3-5 students, who get together virtually to complete their schooling. While different educational institutions approach micro-schools differently, the universal theme is to provide students personalized learning opportunities, access to teachers, and support individual growth.

3. Personalisation

One of the primary drawbacks of traditional classroom teaching is the lack of personalization. And so, over the last few years, EdTech companies have been creating programs to promote individualized learning — a trend that we will continue to see more of. Personalized and self-paced learning will give fast learners an edge, allow slow-learners to study at their pace, and highlight learning challenges more quickly. For instance, customized programs can cater to students with specific learning challenges like ADHD or Dyslexia.

Wrapping up

From conventional classroom teaching to digital-age learning aided by technologies like Artificial Intelligence and IoT, the education industry has grown leaps and bounds. And yet, we're only getting started.
