With technology evolving so rapidly, it’s become important to incorporate new elements into the classroom so that children can keep up with the changes – this way, we are helping to solidify an advantageous future for younger generations.
Through innovation and implementation, modern technology has the ability to have a significant impact on how educators and students approach learning – with students of the future experiencing a larger shift.
Let’s take a look at how the classroom of tomorrow will differ from the norm that we are accustomed to.
Looking ahead, one aim is to introduce personalised learning, so that students can embark on a learning path that is customised specifically for them. This way, they will be part of a learning environment that supports their goals. The idea is to give teachers access to a student-created “learner profile”. This profile will list strengths, weaknesses, preferences, and goals – information that can be used for a tailored teaching approach.
Virtual and Augmented Reality
Augmented reality will open a world of discovery to students. This technology promises to engage learners with “first-hand” experience on the topics they are learning about. For example, if an art class is studying Michelangelo, they can tour the Sistine Chapel right from their classroom in the heart of Melbourne.
Flexible assignments will allow students to draw up their own understanding of a topic. Essentially, the teacher will convey a message and then each learner will have the opportunity to present the information they have learned in a way that best suits their personality type. This way, teachers can test a student’s competency in understanding the material without limiting feedback to your typical written assignments.
When cloud computing is introduced to schools, then the excuse “the dog ate my homework” will no longer have a foot to stand on. Cloud computing is going to alter the way learners and teachers access assignments, documents, lesson plans, and grades. Essentially, it will streamline all administrative processes within a classroom.
At Nvoke, our focus is to make 21st-century technology, solutions, and skills accessible and affordable to our future leaders and partnering schools. We have done this by creating a portfolio of products that give teachers and students the tools that they need for modern-day learning. Our portfolio features:
