Among the many utilities and conveniences that technological innovations impart to mankind, one specific industry with an array of possible applications faces the most stigmas: education. The world today revolves almost exclusively on the millennial’s infatuation with the next, most cutting-edge digital marvel. Companies in their respective marketplaces are witnessing a highest level of competition than ever previously recorded, yet education technology seems to lack the necessary gusto that parents understandably seek, their children’s future quite literally hangs in the balance.
For this reason, to combat all the nuances of the stigmas that education technology faces in Europe, a slew of well-adept organizations have come into the spotlight, featuring and boasting the best-in-class artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), IoT, and cloud-based applications to help students learn better. Alongside these innovations, with the advent of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR), an institution can transform a classroom from the conventional chalk and blackboard to the revamped smartboards. Having been in the market for over 30 years, the digital whiteboards are highly interactive, engaging, and gamified to ensure every individual in the room is either learning or presenting projects together. With regard to AI applications, organizations leverage proprietary ML algorithms that conduct extensive analyses of teachers’ techniques—in order to recreate the same—and students’ study patterns to create learning modules that help both parties achieve the same goal more effectively.
Leveraging AR/VR innovations, education technology organizations empower parents to convert their living room into an interactive classroom that helps student indulge in realistic and interesting learning games, stories, tests, and puzzles as well. Additionally, via AI’s deep learning and cognitive functions, a user’s preferences and interests are recorded to help generate more user-centric scenarios and games to keep them engaged and improve the overall learning experience.
With the continuous adoption of such technologies in education, the industry is set to witness a new culture and norm for how teaching and learning is perceived in the days to come.
