Advancement in the technology is transforming the way students are getting educated. Technology in education is making significant strides forward.

The expectations of students by teachers have increased with the increase in the availability of information. The use of internet and computers in schools has allowed students to fully utilize the information around them.

Some technology trends in education are mentioned below.

Cloud Computing

Cloud Computing represents a significant advance in technology’s potential to improve access to instruction, content, and collaboration. Cloud-based learning platforms provide users with the ability to access any material easily and stimulate a connection between students, parents, teachers, and school. 

Educational Apps

According to a survey, almost every student overwhelmingly has access to personal mobile devices. There are various educational apps that help students in their academic performance. These apps have various features with the help of which students can enjoy and learn at the same time. Mobile learning provides “anytime, anywhere” access to content so that students can learn wherever they go.   

Visualization

Let us say that a student is learning the reaction between oxygen and hydrogen. In school, his/her teacher will just draw the chemical reaction on the blackboard. But with the help of today’s technology, students can visualize how the oxygen and hydrogen atoms are reacting with features like 3D animation and in-air projection.

E-Books

An eBook is a book in the electronic format. It can be downloaded to a PC, computer, laptop, Mac, smartphone, tablet, or any other kind of device that allows reading. It can have a table of contents, numbered pages, graphics, and pictures exactly like a printed textbook. EBooks are delivered almost instantaneously and students can download or purchase and start reading them within minutes.

Educational Games

Games are one of the most effective ways to engage students in learning. Most educational games require students to think quickly and revolve around the utilization of their memory.  Playing games allows students to get used to how a computer works and thus it becomes second nature to them which is very important because we live in a world which is dominated by technology.
