Envisioning the future of education technology

Envisioning the future of education technology tfe Marie Curie FP7 Education lies at a peculiar crossroad in society. On one hand it has This visualization attempts to organize a series of emerging the responsibility of anticipating real-life skills by preparing us for an technologies that are likely to influence education in the upcoming increasingly complex world – but education methodologies can only decades. Despite its inherently speculative nature, the driving trends be formalized after practices have been defined. This dichotomy is behind the technologies can already be observed, meaning it's a particularly aggravated when it comes to technology, where matter of time before these scenarios start panning out in learning fast-paced innovation and perpetual change is the only constant. environments around the world. Classroom Studio Virtual The prevailing paradigm of a single teacher addressing dozens of students unidirection- ally in a physical setting. Peer to Peer learning environments where groups coalesce to discuss, learn and solve problems with each other and the teacher serves as a facilitator. Disembodied environments, where learning, discussion and assessment happen regardless of physicality or geography.

Billed as an evolution in grading mechanisms, gamification brings instant feedback to acquired knowledge through achievements and points systems. Digitization of books Tablets GAMIFICATION OPENING OF INFORMATION Student- developed Dissemination of information outside the physical silos of schools and classrooms, offering feedback and assessment to students anywhere. Formal communication apps #backchannels Student- Portable academic histories designed learning mechanics Inter-school Classroom Rather than considering IT a standalone tool or skill, digitization tends to disperse throughout every facet of the classroom. performance dashboards Self-paced learning teaching platforms Flipped classrooms DIGITIZED CLASSROOMS Comparatively, in studios and virtually, we see ubiquitous, mobile use of technology. 3D printers Assessment algorithms Cascading knowledge maps As classrooms digitize, students are free to collaborate with peers globally. 3.
