What will be the education of the future?
Let’s look a few years ahead to find out what to pay attention to in training today.
Experts predict that in 15-20 years, the main forms of learning will be play and teamwork.
Gamification will change the attitude towards mistakes — they will become part of the process, not a failure. The ability to complete the mission again is an important principle in a computer game. You can search for a solution as much as you want and find new options every time.
- Immersive learning
In the education of the future, there will not be outdated textbooks and monotonous lectures. Children will learn school subjects with the help of technologies of virtual and augmented reality. For example, wearing a VR helmet, the child will be able to observe historical events and even participate in them!
Such training is called immersive, it creates a “presence effect” and allows you to experience an experience that is impossible in the real world. Since the brain does not distinguish between real events and high-quality simulations, there is a high probability that VR and AR technologies will solve the problem of “live” communication in online education.
- Competencies of the future
With the development of technology, specialists will need new competencies — in the future, about 35% of the skills required for employment will change. These include programming, creative and critical thinking, emotional intelligence, and lifelong learning.
Changes in the labor market will also affect school education. It will move away from the industrial model and become more flexible.
