The model of education has largely stayed the same for centuries. But with new technology, the classroom is now rapidly changing. Startups and investors have realized the huge opportunity to digitize the teaching-learning experience, and the results have brought benefits to them, students, and educators.
From virtual degree programs and online courses to apps that boost student engagement, the industry has exploded with hundreds of companies in the last couple of years. Education technology has given students and teachers easy access to a variety of materials and resources and has allowed teachers to experiment with new models, such as the flipped classroom.
As the focus in education is placed on personalization and analytics, tech will continue to grow to allow teachers to optimize and measure students’ progress at every stage of the learning process. New technology, such as wearables, will also continue to create opportunities in the space. The possibilities in the field are endless as the classroom is reimagined and enhanced with new tools.
