Top 4 New Technologies To Be Adopted By Schools Worldwide In 2017
The success of a nation depends on the way its education sector progresses. With the passage of time, various schools around the country have started to incorporate technology to improve teaching and learning process. And why not? After all, the future of our nation depends on the way we shape our education system today!
A few years back, we heard experts talking about education technology regarding audio, video, and experiential technology. Also, they used to mention about how schools should focus to upgrade hardware and use software technology to improve the learning process. The ever evolving technology has made all these things the jargons of the past.
Today, continuous innovations in technologies have completely changed the landscape of the education industry worldwide. Classes at schools are going hi-tech and not remain like they used to be around a decade ago.
This post further talks 4 new technologies to be adopted by schools worldwide in 2017. Letâ€™s take a peep at them, one by one:
It is true that in developed countries, online learning has been around for decades. However, if we talk about developing nation like India, online learning is still not common in schools. It was the introduction of ICT that sparked the trend of adopting technologies in education in India. With the steep rise in the number of schools approving online learning, intellectuals are estimating that soon online learning will become the prime teaching method of every school in India. No doubt online learning promotes collaborative learning because it is highly effective at engaging students by making learning process interactive.
Robotics and Virtual Reality
In developed nations, technologies like robotics and virtual reality have been adopted for teaching and improving the learning process. Experts around the world are predicting soon more schools will be adopting robots for teaching and motivating students to design and create them as part of mainstream subjects like science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
If we talk about robotics, it just has entered the K-12 space and has garnered much excitement. Educators see virtual reality as a way to take studentsâ€™ learning experience to a whole new level. Talking about India, it seems it has to wait for a bit longer for getting adopted in education.
Educators and experts worldwide see artificial intelligence technology making a meaningful impact on K-12 space. Without a doubt, these technologies have tremendous potential to spark creativity in kids and educators. However, for now, it is not entirely adopted by schools worldwide but if AI is introduced in education, needless to say, it will take learning experience to the next level.
Teno is a mobile based powerful communication app for school and parent communication specially created to bridge the communication gap to enhance education system. You would agree that communication is supreme in education, and without it, you cannot improve teaching/learning process. Teno fills the communication gap and helps schools communicate with parents to make a better decision for the best interest of their kids.

The role of technology in the education industry is crucial because education is the most powerful tool to empower a nation. Further, it contributes to its economic growth and development.
In developing nation like India, fully adopting the technologies mentioned above will take some time. However, with the advent of smart mobile Apps, it seems the day will come soon when India become the face of global education.
