Trends that will have a significant impact on the future of education in 2023 and beyond are focused on mental health, hybrid learning, and prioritizing students.
Looking ahead to 2023, we expect more innovation and inspiration for learning communities.
Hybrid Learning Model
In 2020, the sudden emergence of online classes caused many students to miss out on learning opportunities. Since then, we’ve learned that online learning can benefit educators and students if appropriately implemented.
In the next year, schools will continue developing hybrid learning models that allow students to take in-person classes while participating in the virtual classroom. With the necessary equipment and lesson plans, administrators can ensure that the hybrid classroom is successful.
If a few students get sick but are well enough to join the class virtually, they’re less likely to drop behind.
According to a survey, over 90% of hiring managers consider soft skills such as collaboration and problem-solving more important than hard skills when hiring.
Schools and colleges are starting to implement new strategies to promote the importance of soft skills. In the UK, for instance, officials are trying to redefine these skills as power skills.
Project-based learning is one of the methods used to integrate these skills. This type of teaching model allows students to solve problems using hands-on activities.
In the US, almost 100 percent of children play video games regularly. The increasing popularity of electronic games has been attributed to the rise of online learning.
Games can provide students with a variety of ways to experience certain concepts. Gamification can also help develop a more balanced learning process.
