Top Trends in Education for the Year Ahead

Heres a pick of the new trends we’re anticipating this year.

1: Distance learning will continue to grow in popularity.

Aided by new online technologies, and as Universities become more comfortable working in this environment, it seems obvious that distance learning will become more and more the norm, and an expected service for students of all ages. We will see more Universities entering into this area, and the number of options for students will continue to increase.

 

2: MOOC’s.

This idea could transform education for large numbers of students.  MOOC stands for Massive Open Online Course, they are usually free courses that require only a computer and access to the internet.  These courses involve open access information and problem sets. Early projects included a scheme in the UK called UKeU in 2003 but this was too far ahead of its time and was shut down amidst heavy criticism. But the number of MOOC’s and there popularity is increasing all the time, and there is talk that they could receive official institutional accreditation this year.

3:  Super Social Media

Everyone seems to be embracing Social Media. Tutors are setting up Facebook pages for classes, classroom focused blogs written by Professors, and student/tutor posted YouTube videos to help others learn solutions to problems and explain subjects.  Social media of various kinds is changing the learning process and becoming an expected extension of the modern classroom, and for many education providers, it has been for some time.

4: Game based learning

Classrooms are seeing increasing use of various kinds of computer game to help students achieve learning goals.  This is still in its infancy but high interest levels and participation are obvious potential goals of this kind of teacher aid.

 

5: Jobs!

There is finally some cheer in the jobs market and graduates should have an easier time of it than their predecessors over the last two or three years.
