As the drive for learning to more closely reflect life becomes greater, pupils will have higher expectations of the technology available to them; they’ll expect it to be seamless, as it is in their homes and personal lives. Educators from all grade-levels are coming to realize the benefits of technology in the classroom. Typically, education is one of the last industries to make extensive change, holding on to antiquated methods and practices. But through digital transformation and the rise of educational technology, teachers have begun making drastic changes to their instruction, assessments, even the physical make-up of their classrooms, and at a much faster rate than expected.
Educational technology is no longer relegated to computer labs or media rooms. Instead, laptops, tablets, Smartboards, and even cellphones are incorporated into everyday learning tasks. The result? More opportunities for students to access expert tools, collaborative learning, and tech-savvy skills. This SlideShare explores the current trends in technology in the education domain.
