With the immense progress of technology in each passing days, the education system is also getting revolutionized. Replacing the old conventional method of teaching, today’s generation is more into the digital platform usage for educating the students. Teaching has laid its emphasis more on practical applications to help the students understand the concept of each topic thoroughly than just memorizing.
In the near future observing the rapid growth of artificial intelligence, it is expected that the education system might be taken over completely by technology. These are the 5 things that are expected in the educational field in the upcoming years.
1. Personalized learning
Students are expected to learn anywhere irrespective of the location with e-learning tools. The capability of each student will be checked technically to see their level. If the student has a good knowledge grasping quality, they will be provided with harder tasks to improve their level while the ones below average should be facilitated to learn and practice thoroughly until they achieve the confidence level in the lessons. The classrooms will be dedicated to practical learning while theoretical learning will most probably be the e-learning tools. This will help to analyze the capabilities of each student and help them to achieve strong confidence with improved knowledge.
2. Student-Centric Learning
The students will be given the opportunity to choose their techniques of learning a particular subject or lesson as well as choose their desired subject. The teaching method is expected to be extremely flexible with different learning patterns providing an array of choices for the students to choose from. They can choose programs, devices, techniques as per their convenience and even carry their own preferred device for the ease of learning.
3. Collaborative Learning
Like today’s teaching method that has the compulsory textbooks and blackboard along with digital media support, in near future the system is completely expected to transform. Instead of just restricting themselves to textbook knowledge, students will have more exposure to each subject with online e-courses. Students will be easily browsing for their needed topics and able to share their knowledge on social media platforms with other readers. As a result, they will be sharing knowledge together and develop their competencies and skills with active participation.
4. Project-based Learning
Students in the near future are expected to learn more from practical real-life situations than detailed theoretical knowledge. Educational institutions like schools, colleges, universities will be offering project-based learning skills and also teach the basics of organization based learning like Time management, task management, collaborative learning, team management to benefit them in their future career.
5. Change in Examination Pattern
Initially, the examination system was marks based to classify each student’s IQ level. Then it transformed into the grading system from A to F which we have today. In the future, it is expected to be feedback based. Replacing the grading system, each student will be provided honest positive feedback so that they have the motivation to improve. The focus will be in developing a positive mindset for the students to help them improve their IQ level.
The future face of the education system seems to be quite impressive. It will not only help students excel in their academics but also train them from the initial level for organization jobs.
