The Use Of Technology In Classrooms Doubles

Tech in schools provides students with many benefits. It can allow students exposure to careers that may not otherwise be visible to them. It can help students overcome difficulties and lack of access from various reasons. From 1995 to 2014, use of technology in classrooms more than doubled, which has given students the digital and tech skills they needed to succeed in the real world.

Giving students access to video gives those students a multitude of advantages. Flipped instruction, in which students learn a topic and then take on the task of teaching it to others, is greatly enhanced with video. Students can be shown what they did well and what needs improvement. Video can also help them to learn outside of classroom time, making instruction more centered upon students.

Helping Students Be More Active Learners

These techniques can help students become more active and engaged learners, which can lead to a lifelong love of discovery and collaboration. The classroom might become a busier, more distracting place, but the benefits could far outweigh the setbacks.

Chatbots are also being used to enhance classroom learning. They can be used to offer students immediate feedback in their studies, to track performance and make adjustments to curriculum, and can be used as a guide to keep learning on track.

The future of education is all about personalization through tech, and classrooms across the country are already taking advantage of the tools at their disposal to create the next generation of engaged and creative members of the workforce. Learn more about the future of the classroom with technology from the infographic below.
