There is little question that technology has made a lasting change to the world of education. But what that change actually is remains to be seen. Is the legacy of technology’s impact on education that of MOOCs, iPads, and 1:1 classrooms? I hope not. I think there’s a lot more to come and this infographic helps bolster my case. It details a lot of useful factoids regarding how technology is used in education by both teachers and students.
For example, technology has had a profound change on how students actually study, how they communicate with the school administration, and really how they go about their day-to-day lives. This visualization sheds some light on how important students rank their school website, how many professors have a social media account (80%), and how many teachers actually use social media during class. While it doesn’t go into a ton of detail, this is a great snapshot in time of where we’re currently at in terms of education technology.
