The Future of Education: Predictions for the Next Decade

The Future of Education

Education is the root of human development and growth. Thus, vital to the development of mental, physical, social and spiritual faculties. It has been imparted through various styles and mediums over the centuries. The Gurukul system of education was prevalent in ancient India. 

So, systems with different names existed in other parts of the world.  Now, education has started focusing on the holistic development of children. So, this involves interactions with children in other parts of India and the world. Even intra-state, national and international trips are conducted as part of the educational curricula. 

But harnessing the full power of technology like AI (Augmented Reality) or VR (Virtual Reality) will take some more time. The new NEP (National Education Policy) framework set by the Government of India gives us a peek into the direction in which education will move towards building India’s future. You can observe the importance given to computer coding skills, soft skills and many other vital skills in the same. 

Trends that’ll influence education in the coming decade.

Expect complete digital transformation: There will be an increasing demand for online education services from third-party providers due to the increasing number of off-campus students. This includes content, tech support, career services, counselling, etc. Top schools have started using cloud-based technologies for marketing and admissions. 

Prospective students would be using social media, video chat and other technologies apart from phone and email during the admissions process. Even alumni engagement would deploy modern marketing and outreach strategies to maintain alumni relations.

Personalised learning: This will be a boon for students as it removes the misconception of ‘One size fits all’. Teachers or mentors will be able to create adaptive multimedia learning modules using simple authoring tools. Hence, students will be able to learn concepts easily in a manner that adapts to their thinking process. 

Learning through simulations: Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality tools will become the norm for learning using simulations. So, It’ll give students a feeling of living what they learnt about. Many top schools use AR/ VR tools as part of their learning process.

 Dynamic education: Modern technologies like AI, AR, VR, and IoT makes learning, assessment and certification a quick affair. Real-life problems can be solved using Collective Intelligence tools like AI-based ChatGPT.

Decentralisation of education: Technology has already started decentralising education. So, this will become the norm with power distribution from the national level to the local level and even internationally. Hence, alongside third-party stakeholders, education will move from consultation to a co-creation process.

  Access to Open Educational Resources (OER): More advanced knowledge resources are accessible on platforms built for the same purpose.
