With time, artificial intelligence is making its place in every sector of the world. With growing technology and the latest trends, humans are likely replaced by bots. Similarly, one sector that has been influenced by AI is the education sector and with time it will completely take over. Artificial intelligence and technology might take over this sector but that does not mean that education won’t exist. It will be changed in the way it is delivered as compared to today.
Here are a few points that we think will play a major role in the future of education:
The future of education is all about e-learning. There is almost nothing that one cannot Google the solution to. Students shouldn't have to go to a physical institute for learning with heavy textbooks for their backs. Online classes will be the trend. Even now studies have shown that virtual learning is more preferred by students. They believe it is more flexible and allows them to have a work, study, and family life balance.
Online education is much cheaper and could have a deeper impact. Students won’t be “forced” to attend classes by keeping a strict absenteeism policy. They will learn because they want to. Homeschooling will be the new cool. So bullies and peer pressure will no more be a problem.
Students will learn but the focus of the future education will be more towards learning through experiments and by being practical. Such environments shall be set up for students which will let them experience how the real-life works, a life out of books and theories. What they learn shall be implemented which will generate more learning and concept building. There is no more rote learning in the future. We see students cramming up the entire syllabus and forgetting all about it the next day. This shows that today, most of the students have no concepts about what they are learning.
Students shall be given a free choice of making and customizing their schedules. Whichever time suits them and whatever course intrigues them. There will be no peer pressure or lecture-based learning which at times leads a student being left out. He or she will be able to control the pace of studying. If a student is unable to understand a course or a question then he or she will keep practicing it, until, satisfied.
No More Standardized Test
Exams have always been problematic. Students now cram the entire syllabus in one night, take the exam, and forget about it the next day. In the future, students shall be marked on how well the student implements and how well he performs in the field.
Emotional Skills Will be Prioritized
Empathy, sympathy, teamwork, and communication will be prioritized in the future because in the future the market will be focusing more on teamwork and collaboration.
The education system as we know it now will be irrelevant very soon. Organizational silos will be left in the past and a holistic approach shall take over the system.
