A snapshot of how our traditional education is being revolutionized
Since our education system is fast-evolving, a few may think of how teachers approach learning, the ideology on what they teach and how it's structured. However, education is changing with global technological disruptions and they are rapidly being introduced to schools across the globe. Long ago, we had to wait for admissions in big schools to prep our children for college. Now, all the necessary information is readily available in the Internet to choose the right education for your children. Now, children are exposed to latest technologies that sync with their homework tasks which is producing a generation of square-eyed pupils. However, lack of carefully-created learning models and methodologies will fail to push the level of their creativity and coordination during their early childhood life. And that will have a significant impact on their future.
It is evident that changes in schools, more specifically in educational systems, are overlooked by many to ensure quality education. They are set to be the key in advancement of every individual abilities and the entire society. Through updated educational system, each individual’s skills potential, abilities, skills are harnessed and developed further. It helps to make children create and achieve bigger things in life in different facets such as exploration, innovation, progress and many others.
Rise of Creativity and Innovation in Children
We know that creativity is pervasive and that every kid deserves the opportunity to develop, learn and maximize his or her own creative thinking abilities. It's been described as problem-finding and problem-solving abilities by Neuroscience researchers. As the economies change every year in technology, adopting the right teaching methods expands the brain power of every children. Though we’re in a dynamic environment of enormous complex structures and interconnections, kids experience and learn things quickly. Kids’ creative capacity increases with the activities they do on daily basis. As studies in Neuroscience education reveals, clay-based learning is one of effective ways to increase brain capacity and connectedness for children.
Thought fluency and flexibility measures the creative index of a kid, where the creative skills and abilities come into play. Since kids are showing enormous improvements in their creative indexes, schools and parents should help children to maximize their potential by pushing them to explore variety of things. Using practical and collaborative approaches can expand user-centred innovation possibilities and have the potential to radically improve children’s education.
Use of Latest Technologies:
Many schools and education ecosystems now adopt new ways to lighten up the creative and innovative skills in every child. Latest advancements in e-learning, AR, VR, Games, AI etc., creates an enormous opportunity for parents to get their child to use these technologies mindfully. Technologies are not only useful in when one wants to absorb knowledge but also help largely in communication and exploration. Latest tools in technology allow children to indulge in immersive learning and engage visually. It has already lowered the use of old school methods, outdated textbooks and notes. A smart use of technology gives enormous freedom for the teacher to deliver subjects quickly and effectively. It helps build technology-based skills, allowing students to learn early on and to embrace and take advantage of the tools that latest technology offers. The new spur of innovation in classrooms is:
Robot teacher – Robot teacher makes lessons more interesting and entertaining for kids. This enables teachers from anywhere in the world to be “present” in the classroom.
Mobile Technology – Mobile apps let teachers incorporate technological skills with core competency lessons.
3D Learning – Kids enjoy 3D games and movies. This technology offers interactive learning at the highest level.
Assisting Special Needs Students – These technologies are especially useful for students with learning disabilities. For example, phonetic spelling software helps dyslexic students and others with reading problems to convert words to the correct spelling.
Effective involvement of schools:
Technology and other changes in society demand innovation in education. While many schools face challenges such as underfunding, unengaged students, and outdated curriculums, innovation offers a path forward. Visionary schools are using digitalization and latest advancements in technologies to use them effectively for their students to encourage their creativity and innovation. More individual gamification strategies are implemented in their curriculum to get the best out of every child quickly and effectively. Measuring a kid’s Creative Index, assessing their involvement metrics, academic improvement statistics, etc., through data insights can help a parent find the right domain for their kid to progress. Implementing right activity structure in their classes will enrich their thinking and social skills as well. Preparing the kids gives them a productive and constructive future for and improves a cohort of generation as well.
With the evolution of technology, educational capabilities are growing and changing every day. An educator’s abilities will also grow by leaps and bounds with technology. Without the knowledge of these changes and capabilities, a school has a good chance of being left behind. We believe that the future of technology in education is about adapting to the fast-changing world; giving students an opportunity to choose their own way of learning; and combining theory and practice by always taking into account the current demand of the market.
