Technology is radically transforming the education landscape.The technological innovations and digital progress that marked the last two decades have brought a massive change in the ways education is being conceptualized and delivered, bigger than anytime in the history of mankind. Pessimists would call it technological determinism but we see it as a new window of opportunity into the vast horizon of learning.
According to “Bringing Our Schools into The 21st Century Infographic”, some of the opportunities provided by technology for education include:
- High speed connectivity which will enable a wider access to the net
- Cloud based storage capabilities which will, among others, help develop a professional educational culture, enhance communication and improve knowledge sharing.
- Digital portfolios will be commonplace among students. They will be heavily used to demonstrate knowledge and showcase achievements
- Game-based learning will be incorporated into the 21st century learning on a larger scale.More students will be using learning designs integrated in games to practice and improve their problem-solving skills and creative thinking competencies.
