Artificial intelligence has pioneered new technologies in the education for classroom engagements and in school systems on a broader dimension with huge potential to promote education. Haugeland defines AI as the exciting new effort to make computers think… machines with minds, in the full and literal sense. This article focuses on engineering education in a knowledge society with effectiveness in view. It examines the technologies in current use, applications, and future possibilities. It concludes that effectiveness is a continuously improvable process as we iterate towards a desirable future. Today's education model largely focuses on one instructor providing information to several learners at the same time.
Education technology (Edtech) applies to any digital innovation that impacts the education sector, from schools and universities, to multi-academy trusts (MATs) and private, individual learning. In 2021, the global Edtech market was valued at $254.8 billion in 2021, and is expected to reach $605.4 billion by 2027. Like most industries, education was rocked by lockdowns brought about by the global pandemic, and institutions of all kinds needed digital solutions to maintain operations remotely. Now, as we gradually come out of the pandemic, these approaches look set to continue evolving to stay relevant and valuable. With this in mind, we explore how Edtech is making an impact in the education sector today.
This series is about the future of testing in America's schools. Part one of the series presents a theory of action that assessments should play in schools. Part two--this issue brief--reviews advancements in technology, with a focus on artificial intelligence that can powerfully drive learning in real time. And the third part looks at assessment designs that can improve large-scale standardized tests. Despite the often-negative discussion about testing in schools, assessments are a necessary and useful tool in the teaching and learning process.1
Online classrooms, learning management systems, and other groundbreaking technology advancements are increasingly becoming an integral component of our educational system. As a result, what was once thought to represent the future of education is now becoming the standard. Students are now using ed-tech platforms and tools to study at their speed, and the education system is no longer synonymous with the conventional classroom setup. By 2021, the ed-tech sector is anticipated to have 9.6 million users and a market share of US$1.96 billion, according to research by KPMG and Google. The education sector will continue to evolve as a result of the industry's influence.
