How Technology Will Shape the Future of Education
Technology used to be seen as a disruption to education; as a distraction from focus and concentration, but now, if you walk into almost any classroom you can expect to find computers, laptops, iPads, smart boards and much more.
Technology is already prevalent in education today, from the devices students and educators use in classrooms to the online portals and resources used to enhance home learning.
"It’s time to think about digitising educational material to make things like workbooks and textbooks more accessible outside of the school setting across multiple devices..."
The latter has come into sharper focus given the recent school closures around the world, and we’re now seeing a rise in the use of technology for education.
From lessons given via Skype and using YouTube for things like P.E lessons and research, to apps like Google Classroom, where educators can set and assign lessons for students to complete - allowing educators, parents and students to see progress and to communicate.
To keep up with the need to modernise the education sector with the aim of giving students the skills and training necessary to be a part of the modern workforce, we’re seeing new technology and software released every day to help teachers engage their students in new and exciting ways, whilst collaboration tools like Google Drive and Dropbox mean that education no longer needs to take place inside the walls of a school and education can be achieved almost anywhere with an internet connection.
So, what does this mean for the providers of educational material?
It’s time to think about digitising educational material to make things like workbooks and textbooks more accessible outside of the school setting across multiple devices, and it’s not as difficult as you might think.
Using, already there, technology such as epubs, eBooks, and web content we can help to bring your educational content to life, making them more entertaining and therefore engaging for students and teachers alike.
