New Trends in Education

The role of the classical approach in education should not be underestimated. No educational institution can do without the methods and tools that have been proven over decades, and yet, if you strive to keep up with the times, there is no way to ignore the new realities in learning, because every day the things we are used to acquire more and more futuristic features that not every science fiction writer of the past could have imagined! 🚀

Let’s take a look at the 3 most popular trends in education and determine which ones have a chance to stay with us for a long time 🙌

Total digitalization

The pandemic has shown how much we need the digitalization of the educational process. Schools, teachers, parents and children had to switch to a distance or hybrid learning format, and over time it has revealed its pros and cons.

- implementation of educational programs in conditions when children cannot attend schools in person;

- simplification of communication between teachers and parents.

- poor supervision of assignments;

- distracting factors.
In addition, distance learning requires technical equipment that is not available to every family.

Alternative educational platforms

Classical education does not keep up with the pace of information flow. It has a different goal: to give basic knowledge, necessary for everyone, and to motivate pupils and future students to learn and expand their knowledge.

For this purpose, there are alternative educational platforms: online and offline courses, webinars, workshops and so on.

- you can study remotely;

- allows you to update your knowledge in the process of learning.

- there is a chance to run into scammers;

- often there is no consistency, which is important for the assimilation of the material, especially for children.

Engaging VR/AR technologies

Virtual reality allows you to take a fresh look at the educational process, to make it more exciting.

Do you remember literature, physics or astronomy lessons at school when the teacher, besides reading textbooks, offered to watch an educational film, conduct an experiment or take part in an educational game? What could be more entertaining than to diversify the learning process with something memorable and vivid?

- visualization;

- motivation to learn increases;

- students are involved in the process and are not distracted by gadgets;

- technology is introduced in a safe environment.

- schools do not have the necessary equipment to conduct a VR session.
