At its peak in spring 2020, COVID-19 caused school closures in over 190 countries, negatively impacting 94% of enrolled students, globally, according to the United Nations. Within days, the education landscape underwent a major shift with technology being the main driver of change. Open collaboration tools such as cloud platforms for digital learning can allow students to learn at their own pace while also providing them with valuable skills in digital literacy.

Virtual modes of engagement are increasingly becoming the norm, with the COVID-19 pandemic further accelerating this transition. When used effectively, these new tech-enabled education tools can help standardize instruction, increase learner engagement, and provide effective and differentiated instruction per the students’ needs. Foundational STEM education is more important now than it ever has been to ensure that students are ready for the future of work.

Explore the key learnings from the Education chapter:

  • Educators are utilizing mixed-reality environments, including AR, VR, and XR, to provide them with hands-on experience and engage students in real-world and future-focused scenarios. This immersive learning environment provides students with an opportunity to adopt emerging technologies while also providing better learning outcomes.

  • By employing big data, IoT, and predictive analytics, teachers and parents are able to identify learning hurdles in students and proactively employ more effective teaching strategies. Similarly, teachers can utilize this data to create more effective lesson plans and instructional strategies. 

  • Open collaboration tools are vital to create an accessible learning environment. Utilizing cloud platforms for digital learning can allow students to learn at their own pace while also providing them with valuable skills in digital literacy. 

  • Computational thinking and design thinking skills are essential to a students’ long-term success and their ability to problem solveand troubleshoot. Programs that combine these skills into lesson plans will help students in their future education.
