Like any field out there, the education field is always finding out new ways to innovate and make the industry a better place. If you are unaware of what kind of changes are happening in the education space, then this is the perfect post for you!
In no particular order, here are some of the biggest changes that are happening to the education field in terms of new technology to help students and teachers. Some of them are already in full use, and other examples are not that common at this moment.
Text to Speech
The text to speech industry is making a huge impact on the education field, as well as many other fields. In the education field, some of the text to voice on the market is making it easier for people that are impaired to process information that would be tough to do.
For instance, if a student has a reading or visual impairment, then reading from a book or laptop would be a struggle and could frustrate the student. But, with text to speech, they will be able to listen and process the information just like they had read it. Since you can customize TTS, then it is very effective and does not get boring to listen to.
Artificial Intelligence Learning
The next innovation that I will mention is all of the artificial intelligence learning platforms. Schools are finding these useful in some cases, and it really does make sense to use them. For instance, an AI-powered platform could help students learn at their own pace and tailor to their own strengths and weaknesses.
Platforms like Carnegie Learning have adopted artificial intelligence into their programs, and they have been very successful in the education space. Educators are seeing all of the benefits from a more personalized approach with AI instead of a cookie-cutter course that is not tailored to specific individuals.
The last thing that I will mention is that virtual reality is something that is really making an impact in the education world. Virtual reality makes a perfect situation set up and can go a long way with teaching, and not even having to leave the classroom.
Most experts only feel that we are just scratching the surface with virtual reality, so it will be something to watch to see how many advancements happening in the near future. We have already seen some advancements in the gaming space.
It will be interesting to see how virtual reality is used in the classroom and if it can improve the learning process for students. It will likely take over any education fields that are physical and dangerous to teach because obviously virtual reality is much safer and can be just as effective.
