In this article, we have discussed about new technological educational tools that are used in the Educational field,

Smart Boards

Smart boards have been around for many years. However, more and more schools are now adopting this technological tool into their classroom as it offers many benefits to the students as well as the teachers.

Smart boards are highly engaging and interactive for students. The tactile learners physically interact with the board whereas the visual learners view videos and images. And the students who like to listen to audio can be engaged by listening to the lessons.

The teachers can offload some of their tasks to Artificial Intelligence so that they have more time to guide each student to achieve their educational goals.

Augmented And Virtual Reality

Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) are two technologies, which have transformative potential that will grow exponentially in the coming years. The lower cost of these technologies will attract more educational institutions to invest in these effective and engaging training tools.

Blockchain Technology

The Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) that makes Bitcoin is also applicable in education. The blockchain technology can transform the educational system, by offering a decentralized and transparent way to transact data in a fraud proof way. Additionally it provides cost-effective cloud storage solutions.

Learning Analytics

We all know that analytics is used by social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter to optimize their sales. These days educational institutions are also adapting learning analytics to optimize learning experience using similar tools. Although learning analytics is a new technology in the field of education it is in its mode of expansion.

All the above-mentioned technology facilitates adaptive learning systems that use algorithms to test a student’s current educational level. After which, the system guides the student through the curriculum at the optimal path at his or her own pace.

The traditional classrooms are not able to scale effectively according to individualized learning. But the application of new technological trends in the classroom makes this possible.
