Allowing instructors to do what they were hired for – teach!
AV Tech and The Future of Learning Environments : Over the last two decades, technology has had a tremendous impact on consumers’ lives. Our ability to communicate, learn, and make advances in numerous fields has been enriched by technology and has made positive impacts on the global economy. Year after year, industries are benefitting from rapid technology breakthroughs, a trend that shows no sign of abating.
But perhaps the most significant impact of technology is in education. Digital solutions are already enabling students to connect with instructors, resources, and learning experiences that enhance their learning experience. Supporting students, instructors, and educational institutions with learning technology fosters collaboration and learning that extends beyond the learning environment.
Disruptive learning tools are poised to revolutionize the future of education. Here are some examples:
The Hybrid Learning Environment
As hybrid education trends have shown since 2020, greater independence leads to greater results. Both students and instructors benefit significantly from hybrid learning models, which fully leverage the benefits of technology. By providing more personalized mobility, these tech-driven, blended learning models improve students’ outcomes. In addition, they can learn at their own pace and get past learning insecurities. Recorded lectures can also be reviewed by students, allowing them to grasp complex topics independently.
Adaptive Learning Tools
With adaptive learning, students receive customized solutions that meet their specific learning needs. The ‘what’ taught in learning environments emphasizes the subjects as a whole. The ‘how,’ however, focuses on linking those subjects to the real world and applying skills students already use in their everyday lives.
Future classrooms will be more diverse and tech-equipped than today. Adaptive learning technology will allow teachers to focus on creating meaningful relationships with students instead of administrative tasks. The UN recognizes the advantages of digital learning as well. It has a global objective to advance e-learning and connect 3.5 billion students by 2030.
A Human-led Approach to Learning
Through innovative technological strategies, learning is becoming more engaging and interactive. Using videos, hands-on tools, and AI-based environments, students can visualize and interact with various concepts through immersive learning. Through the application of technology in education, we can reshape the experience of learning in a way that maximizes the time and abilities of students.
Adding smart tools to schools will continue to transform them, including the use of face recognition technology to mark attendance and autonomous data analysis to make learning decisions. By automating some aspects of learning, teachers will be able to devote more time to human-directed teaching.
Hybrid learning and tech-driven delivery of education will define the next decade. Our traditional educational systems and frameworks will be constantly improved, innovated, and agile to implement the rapid technological innovations of the future.
