This is the beginning of a new decade. This means that now is the time to come up with new goals, try new technologies, and keep up with the latest tech trends.
We have made our predictions over the years. In anticipation of what is to come in the new year, we are highlighting 6 educational trends out of 2020 that are sure to be in the minds of teachers, students, parents and administrators in school districts across the country.
These are just some of the goal setting shareware that you can use.
Trend # 1: Embedded LTE Chromebox
We already know that Chromebooks are popular in 12 (we broke five reasons why LTE Chromebooks are an important part of today’s 12 classrooms in the month of October), but expect that L.C. TE Chromebook will be even more popular in 2020.
Chromebooks keep changing games for students and teachers alike. Not only are these simple laptops extremely affordable, but they can also be tailored specifically for students’ learning needs. Some LTE Chromebooks come with 4G LTE internet connectivity and enough data for the entire school year, according to CIPA.
If you are thinking of bringing LTE Chromebooks to your classrooms in 2020, here are helpful tips on what they are and how they work.
Trend # 2: New roles for teachers
Just as the increasing use of technology in the classroom has resulted in students having to adopt new learning methods and subjects, so too teachers have to adapt to new roles and responsibilities.
One of these characters: the student. As Linda Cartwright notes in a blog post for Toro College, “A teacher is changing from one class to another who knows things from a new person.” In this role students are now able to learn and develop. There is more to guidance than in the past when the teacher was seen as a fountain of knowledge in the classroom.
As more and more tools are introduced in everyday classrooms, teachers will have to play the role of explorers just like their young accusers. And this evolution in their character can also lead to them getting certified which helps them to perform better in the classroom.
One such certificate has been presented by the International Society for Teaching in Education, ISTE, which last year launched a pilot program to teach teachers its standards through the “Qualified, Vendor-Neutral Teacher Certification”. What was The certification process requires entrants to complete personal training and online training, as well as create an ePortLive before becoming ISTE Certified.
Trend # 3: More artificial intelligence
Artificial Intelligence (AI) as a classroom tool has been a major topic in ad tech in recent years, and in 2020 it is expected to be one of the top priorities for schools and teachers thinking about the future. Is. According to Cartwright, the use of AI in the classroom is expected to increase by more than 47% in the next three years.
There are many benefits to using AI in the classroom. As a tool, it is agile and efficient. It allows individual learning with feedback in real time. Perhaps most importantly, it’s a lot of fun. There is a plethora of AI-powered apps and programs that can help students understand and apply the most effectively in the fields (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) required for STEM learning. ۔
Doug Bondrand, author of Ad Tech Magazine, has rolled out the next steps AE Learning is expected to take in the coming years. These measures range from AI-powered classroom assistants to smart AI programs that can better capture an individual’s student growth and impact.
Trend # 4: Engaging students in new ways of learning
Video conferencing on the rise
In the old days, you might remember a pen at another school for which you wrote letters once a month. Not anymore.
Not long ago, kindergarten students in New York connected with their younger peers in Ohio, all with the help of video conferencing. His story highlights the growing role of distance education in today’s schools. And video conferencing is a big part of that.
For K-12 students, video conferencing is no surprise to meet hundreds of miles away. It is a unique opportunity for students to practice their communication skills, collaborate on projects in real time and learn from professionals and experts who would not otherwise be able to go to the classroom.
Video conferencing also keeps students connected at home. For example, an Indiana student is able to send a video to her classroom to stay connected, even though she is at home due to a medical condition.
Expansion of the classroom beyond the school walls
School districts across North America are adding filtered Internet to their school buses. Why? Extending the learning day by giving all students access to the Internet for homework.
When Merced Union High School District (MUHSD) in California went 1: 1, the Department of Technology knew that students were still spending hours in their rural community going to school as well as the curriculum journey.
“We’ve considered a lot of solutions, but we’ve all had to ban the supply of hotspots. This was not possible yet. When I saw Kajit’s solution for school buses, the bus clicked. ”
Anthony Thomas, Director of Technology, Merced Union High School District
Trend # 5: Vapor sensor
As you can see in the news, Wanping is becoming a serious problem for today’s youth. Twenty percent of high school students use e-cigarettes, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. So, how can administrators stop vaping in schools?
One possible answer: the vaping sensor. More and more schools are installing vaping sensors in public areas where students can try to hide smoke, such as bathrooms. Already, school districts in New Jersey, Ohio, and Illinois are experimenting with this new type of technology.
According to CNN, vaping sensors have an added benefit: they can help prevent bullying. In addition to detecting THC oil, some of these sensors can also respond to screaming and other unusual sounds.
Trend # 6: More Cybersecure Networks
Last, but not least, at least in 2020, cybersecurity will be a worrying issue for school districts across the country. As hackers devise more and more counterfeit methods to infringe data and slip malicious code into key education systems and programs, IT administrators promote their defenses so that learning can continue uninterrupted. Coins
Forbes recently published an extensive list of cybersecurity forecasts for the coming year. Surprisingly, there are many of them that teachers should also pay attention to. Among them are: the rise of Defax (videos that look real but are still produced) and the possibility of a state of emergency in cities due to large-scale malware attacks.
This makes protecting school devices and networks (and the students who use them) even more important. One way to do this is through Dashboard, which is specifically designed to save the K-12 learning environment through educational filtering, data management, and reporting tools.
