Five trends that are shaping digital technology in education

Having listened to experts who chart trends in education and through our conversations with educators, students, parents and Ed-Tech companies worldwide, we cannot help but note the following observations on factors that seem to be impacting the national school systems in developed English-speaking countries. Broad Trend 1: Penetration of Mobile DevicesNMC Horizon Report 2011 placed the time-to-adoption for mobile devices to be one year or less, noting that in developed countries, one could expect practically all students in the upper grades to carry a mobile.  NMC Horizon Report 20

Another factor is the lack of teacher involvement and training.

Carina Bethea's curator insight, June 14, 4:31 PM

All of these trends are interesting, however, I think that "Learning Anytime, Anywhere" could summarize them all. 

Smartphones, IPads, IPods, laptops, ebooks,...many of the other articles on this curation page are talking about these new tools of learning. The thing that connects them all is portability and flexibility. It makes learning an "anytime, anywhere" activity, versus being confined to the classroom only. 

Always learning might sound like a nightmare to some students (and teachers), but eventually they might be able to see the advantage in the flexibility it offers. Less in person classroom time means more time at home or out in the park. I would prefer studying on my sofa any day over studying at a school desk. 

It offers more freedom and mobility, which is also great for distance learners who are working at the same time. Connect with your peers via your smartphone during a break at work? No problem. I have done it before via Facebook (for this very class). 

While it makes it a bit harder to "turn off", it also makes school a more interactive part of life. And that is perfect, since what you learn in school should become part of your life anyways.

Great one.

Olinda Turner's curator insight, November 20, 2013 5:57 PM

Although directed at content marketing, these ideas translate into technical communications where users are trying to help each other find the best technical content. I totally agree that the fundamental way in which we communicate through content is shifting.

This is right up my alley. Looking forward to reading about trends and impacts.

Erica Bilder's curator insight, November 15, 2013 7:11 AM

I have nothing to add to Robin Good's terrific insights:

 Robin Good's insight:

 

 

Picture these scenarios:
 

The Victoria & Albert Museum, its collections depleted by massive repatriation, becomes a travel & tourism guide and international affairs ambassador in an increasingly globalized community
 The Freud Museum, in the spirit of its namesake, becomes a provider of mental retreat and therapy (I wonder if the docents will be licensed psychoanalysis?)

These, according to the 40-page report “Museums in a Digital Age” from Arups, may actually be some of the likely new profiles of prestigious museums 25 years from now.  

 

The report projects that:

 

"...future museums will see personalised content, new levels of sustainability and a visitor experience extended beyond present expectations of time and space."

 

A rising desire among audiences to shape their own cultural experiences (“Collaborative Curation”)
 The opportunity for museum to become “curators of experiences” that extend beyond the boundaries of traditional exhibits or programs, or beyond the walls of the museum itself.

 

Source: http://futureofmuseums.blogspot.it/2013/11/museums-in-future-view-from-across-pond.html ;

 The idea of "collaborative curation" of museum collections by the actual users-visitors, is particularly fascinating.  "Just as current consumer trends shift towards collaborative consumption, in the future, museums may employ new patterns of collaborative curation,allowing for individually curated experiences and giving the public greater control over both content and experience.
Increased visitor participation will allow people themselves to reinvent the museum experience, enabling content that can adapt to the preferences of users in real-time." 

 

My comment: If you are a curator and are interested in exploring and understanding what the future of large collections and museums may look like and which forces are going to be driving such changes, this is a good report to read.

 

Insightful. Inspiring 8/10
