It wasn’t too long ago that the most advanced form of edtech was the trusty overhead projector in a classroom. A lot has changed since then. Today, the learner engagement strategies of an educational institution has progressed considerably with the incorporation of mobile devices, as well as the provision of virtual and augmented learning. And now, as the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent lockdowns have forced students to stay at home and continue with their academic courses, it is driving further evolution of the digitalized education sector.
A myriad of educational technologies, such as student information systems (SIS) that streamline grade books and attendance tracking, smart boards, test prep software, paperless classrooms are now maturating rapidly amid the lockdown. Additionally, the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) in assessing a student’s performance is also gaining momentum. Many online teaching platforms are now integrating adaptive learning technology via AI and ML to understand what learning path or instructional support is most appropriate for a particular student. Virtual and mixed reality-based teaching is another trend that is quickly coming to prominence. These teaching methods are proving to be more engaging than traditional textbook learning. And as these changes are becoming a mainstay for student engagement, there is no doubt that the new ideas and new technologies will endure in the classroom even after the COVID-19 crisis subsides.
