The future of learning is rapidly evolving, and Lumen™ Touch is not only eager to see what the future brings but is also actively helping schools embrace the technologies that are at the forefront of this revolution. From online learning to virtual reality in the classroom, technology is changing the way students learn and interact with information.
What Does the Future of Learning Mean for the Traditional Classroom?
As technology continues to change the game for learners, educators, and institutions, how can we harness technology’s potential to create a brighter future for education? According to a study conducted by EdTech Magazine, 90% of students were already using technology to learn by the year 2020 and 60% of teachers reported that their students were more engaged in lessons when technology was used. Rather than resisting the ways in which technology changes the classroom, most educators are embracing the empowerment it provides to them.
Technology Makes Learning More Accessible and Flexible
As most of us discovered during the pandemic, technology helped make education more accessible to more people. Technology also offered the kind of flexibility that allowed educators and districts to provide a wider range of educational opportunities. More personalized learning – not just for SPED but for all students – can be achieved through technology in education. We’ve seen the power of technology in action, connecting students with others around the world for unique learning experiences, improving interaction between students and their teachers, and increasing engagement from both students and their families.
Secondly, technology has made education more flexible. Gone are the days when students must attend classes at specific times and locations. With online courses, students can learn at their own pace and on their own schedule. This has led to an increase in personalized learning, as students can choose courses that align with their interests and goals.
The Rise of EdTech
We are not proponents of edtech for edtech’s sake, but we do believe that the right edtech solutions can enhance learning and provide tools for teachers that allow them to spend more time working directly with students instead of just dealing with mounting paperwork and compliance requirements. As VR and AR become more commonplace in classrooms, technology will open up even more opportunities for educators to provide immersive experiences to their students, enhancing learning and engagement.
The Future of Learning Is Now
As technology continues to enhance education, we believe it will result in a new generation of teachers who are able to spend more time working directly with students and providing enriched experiences, without feeling overwhelmed with the teaching process. Technology offered by districts may even be a way of attracting and retaining teachers. Affording technology in education is made simple with Lumen Touch. With special modules for special education, a full library, and modules for individual user data dashboards, Bright SUITE™ is an all-in-one enterprise management solution that allows districts to save money, improve student retention, and create a secure and connected school district.
