How education will change in the future
As the technological revolutions explode and develop strongly, some educators worry that there will be no more students to teach in the near future because “Professor Robot” can take over. duties and abilities of teachers in the majority of teachers today.
The point is:
Education will never go away. It will just take in different forms. In this article, how will you and I imagine and shape the future of education in the next 20 years? From there, prepare your mind to respond to the future trend of education right now.
Let’s imagine that in the next 20 years and with the development of technology like today… there will be a lot of educational materials, a lot of elearning lectures, a lot of “robot professors”. Therefore, students will only need the support of technology devices connected to the internet to occupy all learning opportunities at any time and anywhere. Students can fully learn remotely and develop on their own. Education knows no borders, one subject, one school unit, one organization can enroll and provide learning materials to all learners in need around the world.
The question is: the theory,
the experimental model via video, the clip is ready, but what will the practical and interactive environment to integrate theory into real life outside of online classes? This is a challenge as well as an opportunity for schools, institutions, businesses and even educational studios. At this time, teachers must be really creative and experienced people like “educational artisans”.
Students will learn with learning tools that match their interests and abilities. This means that above average students will be challenged with more difficult tasks and questions when a certain level is reached. Students who have difficulty with a subject will have the opportunity to practice more until they reach the required level. Students will receive positive reinforcement in their individual learning process. This can lead to a positive learning experience and will reduce the number of students who lose confidence in their learning abilities. Furthermore, teachers can also clearly see which students need help in which areas/subjects.
While every subject taught is directed toward the same goal, the path to that destination can be different for each student. Similar to a personalized learning experience. Students will be able to modify their learning process with the tools they feel they need. Students will learn with different devices, different programs and techniques based on their own interests. Project learning, flipped classrooms (learning theory tied to practice) form key terms in this shift. Students should be familiar with project-based learning in school to perfect their organization, collaboration, and time management skills. These are the basics that every student needs to practice thoroughly right in their learning path.
In the near future, computers will soon take over all statistical analysis, description and analysis of data as well as predicting future trends. As a result, human interpretation of these data will become a much more important part of the educational curriculum of the future. Applying theoretical knowledge to numbers and using human intelligence to make logical deductions and accurately predict future trends… will become a new, fundamental aspect of the subjects.
Exams will change completely. Since the course software platforms will assess the student’s ability at each step. Testing knowledge through Q&A will become irrelevant or may not be sufficient. Many argue that current exams are designed in such a way that students are crammed with knowledge and forgotten the next day. Therefore, a student’s actual knowledge must be measured by applying the knowledge to work on projects in the directly relevant field. That is the most effective and accurate way to check.
Over the next 20 years, students will incorporate a lot of independence in their learning. Teachers will be the mentors who are the foundation for student success. The teacher will form a central point in the forest of information that students want to explore. Although the future of education may seem far away, the imagination to shape education by teachers and educational institutions is crucial for quality and success today.
