On my last practicum I have a year two class, and once a week during maths, they would do online activities surrounding the topic theory at the time and actively work individually with their own ipad on different exercises that were mathematically based! What a fantastic way of incorproating Technology into another sub-strand!

New educational technology and customised education | ICEF Monitor

New educational technology and customised education | ICEF Monitor | education | Scoop.it

Education technology is in the midst of an historic shift toward a less centralised, more learner-directed model. The trends relating to this are rapid and overlapping, but are driven by student preferences for customised learning. Today, ICEF Monitor returns to the ever evolving subject of technology in education with a focus on the customisation demands driving change.

 

What do learners want?

 

By now it’s no secret that students are demanding more technology in education, and another new study called “The Future of Education” – conducted by Internships.com and the research firm Millennial Branding – further backs this belief: 50% of students feel a physical classroom is unnecessary for learning, 53% trust in the reputability of online colleges, and 39% expect education to be more virtual in the future.

 

Other findings from the report show that:

 

84% of students use a computer to study.19% use an iPhone and tablet device to study.69% would participate in an online internship if they were able to.43% believe online education will provide them with courses of the same or higher quality than traditional colleges.

 

Instructors out of sync

 

These findings highlight modern learners’ embrace of new technology; however, university instructors are not quite in sync with students.
