Future Learning Tools Infographic
Imagine if students could strap something on their head and automatically do better on tests. They would literally be putting on their thinking cap. Or, rather than downing gallons of coffee and cramming for exams only hours before they begin, students could get a jolt to the brain instead. Science fiction? While these scenarios may sound less like science and more like fiction, these may be just two of the several exciting edtech tools of the future. As a matter of fact, they are already being implemented in some ways and it may be just a matter of time before they hit a classroom near you—perhaps even your own classroom. But anytime physiological changes are being made to the brain, it’s important to temper excitement with solid research and studies. And while it sounds like students could be made into passive learners in the future and rely only on technology to make it through school, no technology will ever take the place of engaged, enthusiastic teachers and eager, motivated students. The Future Learning Tools Infographic presents the learning tools of the future and how they might be used by future students.
