Edtech trends students should leverage

Online learning has been instrumental in keeping students engaged during these difficult Covid times. However, the one good thing that came out of this whole situation is that digital learning is one step closer to being the new normal for all. The amount of time students spend learning through digital methods has challenged companies to amp up their innovations and cater to these rising trends. This means that students have a wide arena of options to choose from. Now that we have spoken about the various options available to students, let’s see what some of them are.

1. Personalised Learning Tools:

The name is suggestive of what it stands for. Personalised learning tools use artificial intelligence to cater to a child’s learning needs specific to their requirements. It can track anything from a student’s learning level to their pace of learning and the skills they need to focus on. We also make a very strong case for our app, Class Saathi, when we suggest that it is one of the most refined forms of leveraging personalised learning tools in academics.

2. Digital Masterclass:

Digital Masterclasses have found a new avenue of importance in the field of digital learning as there are no physical restrictions that can stop hundreds of students from accessing virtual classrooms. This makes it easy for scores of students to access quality teaching resources from A-listers in their fields. This is one way of truly learning without any boundaries.

3. Block-based Coding Systems:

Much hue and cry have been happening around children coding. Though there are conflicting opinions about coding systems for children, experts believe that it is an essential skill in these times that demonstrates the true capabilities of children to assimilate to learning techniques instead of simply learning by rote. Block-based coding systems allow students to pick up programming languages in blocks, allowing them to create a foundation for future programming needs. There is a lot of space for growth in the IT space and it is a good idea to encourage coding in children now so they’re naturally aligned with interest when the time comes!

4. Immersive Learning:

This is honestly an expensive undertaking but one that has a lot of return on investment. Augmented reality is by far the most visual and immersive learning experience you could ever empower your students or children with. Granted that it is not the most feasible option but immersive learning tools engage students on a multi faculty level by activating all their sensory systems to the learning environment that they’re a part of. This is also thought to increase interactivity since students experience a simulated ecosystem where their lessons come to life in front of them!

5. Subscription Based Learning Models:

Online courses are a great way to build additional accreditation in students. However, the big challenge here is that concepts taught may not be able to cater to the diverse learning needs of students. To combat that, Subscription Based Learning Models have emerged in the field that gives students access to a whole avenue of resources they can pick and choose from to support their learning needs. They also have the benefits of choosing specific topics, tailor resources for their needs and also dismiss content that does not ignite their interest or cater to their needs.

The ed-tech world is rife with opportunities for learning and it can be a confusing and stressful experience for parents to pick some. To make this task easier, we have compiled a list of ideas that parents and educators can leverage to make online learning the most immersive it can ever be!
