  • Research driven by Educational Researchers explains what the educational experience will be like in the years to come. A greater technological influence is estimated in the classrooms, which will demand greater support and commitment from educational institutions, teachers and parents regarding the use that students give to technological tools.
  • There is widespread concern about the use that students make of technology inside and outside of educational spaces. For example, mobile phones are prohibited in classrooms in Pakistan. The specialists highlight the need for both educational entities and parents to provide assistance to students develop healthier and self-controlled behaviors regarding the use of diverse types of technological tools. The role of the teachers will have to be transformed into that of a guide who assists and supports rather than that of a figure who represses.
  • Computational thinking: The researchers say that the study of STEM disciplines, an acronym for the English terms Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, will be more pronounced and necessary at all educational levels. The jobs of the future are expected to require the development of the skills of systematic thinking, creativity and critical thinking, to name a few, that entails the study of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. As an example, in Sweden since the summer of 2008 programming is a subject taught from basic education.
  • Collaborative classrooms: The classrooms will no longer be static and their elements and design will favor interaction between students and teachers. In relation to the above, the study indicates that the architecture of educational spaces affects up to 25% the academic progress of students in a school year.
  • It should be noted that it is not necessary to tear down schools and build new flexible and adaptive classrooms. Simply rearranging and experimenting with elements and spaces in classrooms can pay off big.
  • Innovative pedagogy:
  • Teachers will be the agents of change that will detonate new forms of instruction supported by different technological tools. The goal will be for instructors to save time by automating many of their routine tasks and to focus on transforming and refining their teaching strategies.
  • Given the long working hours and the overwork of teachers, it would seem impossible that they will also generate new educational strategies. However, the support of their institutions in freeing themselves from daily tasks can motivate educators to experiment with different learning tactics. As well as the development of technology that reduces the time of the administrative tasks of the teachers and facilitates the creation of attractive content.
  • To enhance in Life skills and job eagerness:
  • A more holistic vision of education will be necessary so that students, from the basic levels, acquire skills, attitudes and ways of thinking that allow them to be successful when integrating into professional experiences and the workforce.
  • According to the results of the surveys that the report investigates, the development of socio-emotional skills or values ​​such as empathy will be just as important as the promotion of digital skills.
  • Student-Centered learning: Greater autonomy is seen on the part of students in their learning processes; greater pro- activity and creativity with the help of adaptive education systems or pedagogical strategies that empower them in making decisions about some elements or content of educational programs.
  • Connecting Teachers and schools:To ensure the educational success of students, parents will need to have a closer relationship and commitment to their children’s activities. It is evident that the current lifestyle of many of the tutors prevents enough time to be allocated to student activities; however, technology is expected to support families in these tasks.
  • Likewise, educational institutions will have to generate simpler ways for parents to commit themselves more effectively to the education of their students.
  • Emerging technologies: Educational experiences will make greater use of emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence or augmented reality, for example, which will enhance the effectiveness of educational programs.
  • The specialists conclude that education is evolving so that students are more connected in their lives, collaborate more in class and are better prepared for their future. To achieve educational success, technology and pedagogy must work together. Different educational institutions should empower teachers, in addition to equipping them with the necessary tools to improve their lessons, create more fluid learning ecosystems, and transform classrooms into innovative learning spaces.
