The education industry is also touched by this phenomenon having the ‘Gen Z’ expectations skyrocketing with state of art tech surrounding them at all times and adding to that accessibility of information at their fingertips. As the world we live in changes to embrace tech futures, how and what we teach in our education system will also be reshaped to keep up to date with the growing demands of the 21st century. As we ride the wave of the digital era, it is becoming easier to get connected with a global reach. A world of information is at your fingertips with the click of a button or a simple voice command, and, as technology continues to advance, students need to grow their learning with it. Classrooms have come a long way since the time of chalkboards and overhead projectors. Now, as students have returned to both digital and in-person classrooms, it’s important to assess the seismic shifts taking place in schools around the nation.

Education- technology is a forever bond                                                                                               

Technology is no longer a motivating factor when it comes to learning – it is a must. It’s something that needs to be incorporated in the future of education to ensure students are equipped with the skills to cope in a world dependent on technology. While some argue that technology in our classrooms creates lazy, disconnected students, I believe this is a myth. technology has created endless boundaries of where learning can occur, with whom, and why.

The reality is classrooms can be anywhere at any time. Students can be working on projects in virtual contexts with other students from around the world at any given moment. Technological advances have enabled the interconnectedness of information and people with the touch of a button. Education in the future will need to demonstrate how technology can be used to students’ advantage, as well as teach future generations how to handle problems that arise from it.

For some time the debate on digital technologies has been present in the educational environment. However, the true challenge is not whether to use technology or not, but to rethink education with it. Today’s technologies define a new learning environment that modifies our relationship with contents, requires new forms of teaching-learning and blurs the boundaries between classroom and home, formal and informal education. In this sense, it is not only a case of developing a set of skills and abilities of a technical nature, but a combination of behaviors, specialized and technical knowledge, working habits, arrangements, and critical thinking. Talking today about digital education is, therefore, something more than just talking about training in digital literacy.

Conclusion

During this past year, we saw a surge in technology adoption to help facilitate remote teaching and learning among students and teachers. Downloads of education apps rose by 130% in the U.S., considerably above the worldwide average of 90%. And, that trend has continued as schools resumed in the fall with a mix of in-person, hybrid, and fully remote learning models.

Curriculum Teaching and learning already extend well beyond the classroom and will continue to do so, and as education changes to suit the future’s needs, the role of a teacher must also adapt and grow. It is each teacher’s responsibility to empower students to take risks, be innovative and seize any opportunity thrown their way. In light of a shift towards a more personalized learner experience, teachers of the future must be prepared to be data collectors, as well as analysts, planners, collaborators, curriculum experts, synthesizers, problem-solvers, and researchers.
