The world is changing. In other words, the way we study and learn to succeed in the world must also change. For a long time, education has spent a good deal of time sitting in the classroom absorbing information before going out to put it to work. But the pace of change today means that what you learn one day can be redundant the next.
This means we have to change the way we learn. Concepts such as technology and lifelong learning must be incorporated to better prepare for today’s rapidly changing world. So, here’s a roundup of the most important trends driving this change over the next 12 months and beyond.
artificial intelligence (AI), explained As the most innovative technology of the 21st century, it is reshaping every industry and field of human activity, including education. In the classroom it is found in the form: virtual assistant It helps both students and teachers manage their time and complete assignments.Individual guidance system that can be provided personalized learning An experience for students of all ages and abilities. Empower remote and online learning systems that can pace education to meet student needs. Language translation in educational settings where students speak different languages, and many other applications.Some have even been reported chinese school To monitor whether students are paying attention in class, we implemented facial recognition technology using a computer vision system.
according to UNESCOAI has the potential to help tackle some of the toughest challenges in education today. This includes addressing inequalities in the schooling provision around the world and improving global access to knowledge. But it also creates its own challenges. Efforts must be made to ensure that the deployment of this highly disruptive technology is done in a way that is fair and does not itself contribute to inequality.
Remote, online, and hybrid learning
The global Covid-19 pandemic has forced schools, colleges and course providers to develop their capabilities to deliver education in remote areas. But even before that, the explosion in popularity of Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs) was revolutionizing the realm of online learning. In schools, remote and online learning allows educators to reach out to students no matter how isolated their communities are. This could be a big step forward in providing equal access to education. about 270 million Children do not go to school because they live in remote areas or in the countryside.
For those living in cities, the rise of online and remote learning facilities offers the opportunity to continue their education even when their busy adult lives make it difficult to attend regular classes in person. This is being driven by the emergence of online educational technology (ed-tech) platforms such as Udacity, Coursera, Udemy, and EdX. These platforms are designed to enable a “lifelong learning” approach. This is likely to become more prevalent thanks to the accelerating pace of technological progress, requiring frequent skill updates and “topping up” through new models such as: microlearning Or nano-learning. One of the recent emerging trends in the online learning space is courses taught by celebrities and prominent practitioners. The Masterclass and Maestro platforms (the latter created by her BBC) offer opportunities to learn children’s writing from Julia Donaldson, filmmaking from Martin Scorsese, business from Bob his Eiger, and more. increase.
not just college
In 2023, high schools plan to increase resources to prepare students for future paths that lead to places outside traditional college courses. Vocational and technical courses that teach diverse skill sets are likely to become more popular as schools work with employers to develop new solutions to the problems posed by skill gaps. In the United States, the Bureau of Labor Statistics suggests: 43 percent of high school graduates go on to college. Nevertheless, a disproportionate amount of school resources are focused on preparing this minority group, and students who plan to continue their education through non-traditional methods such as apprenticeships and on-the-job training. There is not much education that focuses on can be expected to be seen in the future. In Europe, 2023 has been designated as the European Year of Skills. This is because, in the face of a global economic slowdown or recession, a focus on vocational education and training alongside traditional academic, subject-based training will develop new drivers of economic growth. We recognize that it may be the key to
virtual reality and augmented reality
Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) are two forms of Augmented Reality (XR) that are becoming increasingly important within the education system. VR allows users to step into virtual worlds, enabling everything from going back in time and experiencing history with your own eyes to training in difficult and dangerous tasks such as making repairs. There are a huge number of “experiences”. in dangerous environments. Other use cases that will grow in popularity in 2023 include: virtual classroom, enabling remote learning and class activities to be delivered in a more immersive and experiential environment. In healthcare training, VR is already being used for everything from enabling nursing students to experience delivery. emergency medicine train doctors perform surgery.
Augmented reality requires a device (phone, table, headset, etc.), but it differs from VR because it requires computer-generated images superimposed on what the user is actually seeing. The advantage here is the ability to provide real-time information. For example, warn trainees in a manufacturing environment that a piece of machinery may be dangerous. This is made possible thanks to her computer vision algorithm that analyzes images captured by the headset’s camera. at school, AR textbook Images and models that “look lifelike” when viewed with a smartphone camera are becoming available, giving students a closer and more in-depth look at everything from ancient Roman architecture to the inner workings of the human body. can. There are also more and more museums and sites of historical or scientific interest. Add AR Modify environments and exhibits to create more immersive educational opportunities.
Soft skills and STEM
Soft skills include communication skills, teamwork, creative thinking, interpersonal problem solving, relationship management, and conflict resolution. In other words, they are human skills that are unlikely to be replicated by machines anytime soon. I guess. This means that as these skills are more valued by employers and industry, they are increasingly taught as part of technical education. According to HR expertssoft skills are becoming increasingly important to a company’s success, but are much more difficult to measure and evaluate than “hard skills” such as mathematics, engineering, and computer programming.
In 2023, STEM education will place increasing emphasis on these critical skills, and increased efforts will be made in measuring and evaluating organizational competence in this area.
