I remember my childhood where I used to hate going to school. The tables have entirely turned today.
We are in the last quarter of 2019 and I must say kids these days enjoy going school or to be more precise staying at home because there is no need for them to attend school to learn regularly.
All they require doing is open their school app and can easily access their classroom lectures then and there.
However, this is just the beginning of how mobile apps are changing and will eventually change the future of the education realm.
The concept of e-learning via mobile apps seems to be growing by leaps and bounds. Not just education from food to groceries, shopping, transportation, beauty care, banking, and the list goes on.
Gone are the days when we had to rely on the traditional mindset of learning; with a severe boom in the corporate and business sector, the current generation is compelled to grow tech-savvy.
Which is good! Furthermore, more and more institutions and organizations are seen adopting smart technologies in imparting education.
The convenience of mobile apps is loved by all
Cut to the present, mobile apps especially the ones which belong to the education category are a popular pick on play stores, Blackberry apps, and iTunes.
And with the arrival of M-learning, learning is now possible hassle-freely wherever and whenever we want.
Day in day out, people are becoming self-motivated, well organized and self-responsible. And above all, education won?t be all about taking in information and sharing it back but at the same time figuring out what to do with that information in the real world.
If simply put, it will be the practical implementation of theoretical know-how.? In the following post, you will know how M-learning is changing the future of E-learning.
#1 Personalized and Innovative Content
I am sure you must have come across apps like Byju?s offering individuals personalized content with offline learning.
The best part of these apps is they offer a huge amount of flexibility, learning patterns can be modified by student?s capabilities.
Time to get rid of mugging things up; all you require doing is turn on your phones and repeat the content until and unless you don’t get a grasp over it.
Another interesting example is having a virtual personal assistant such as Amazon?s Echo, Google Now, Siri, Cortana, BlackBerry Assistant and much more.
In the present scenario, the process of learning has become more personalized in a way reducing the workload of the employees too.
Turn on your phone?s camera and you will be able to identify a wide range of plants, animals, or even gaze through the stars.
Using the Google glass or Facebook?s Oculus Rift will be somewhat like taking a virtual trip to some ancient castle during the history class.
#2 Interaction like never before
Education won?t be a bore especially with more and more mobile apps turning into an interactive experience.
Have you ever tried using any apps which focus on improving a child?s vocabulary and pronunciation skills? If yes, tell me why do you think children do not get tired of using such apps.
Simple, these e-learning apps comprises of a plethora of functionalities that engage the end-user so that these little ones can learn better and grasp quickly.
#3 Learning beyond boundaries
There is no denying the fact that technology has made the education sector more fascinating and interesting than what it used to be in the earlier days of note pads and course reading. Even a lot of schools have implemented learning through apps and several
sites like Coursera, Udacity, and TED that are helping students and teachers gain knowledge in an easy, fun and convenient way.
With the emergence of smart classes, children are seen getting more acquainted with disruptive technologies like Virtual Reality (Google Expeditions), Augmented Reality.
With education-based mobile apps on smart devices, working on assignments remotely becomes feasible. Moreover, they can even get them reviewed.
Overall, those students who are located in remote areas are largely benefitted by this technology. It allows them to learn from everywhere.
On and all,
Instead of widening the gap, e-Learning apps seem to have strengthened the collaboration between teachers, students, and parents.
All of these require upgrading themselves at regular intervals are not being limited to gain knowledge up to a certain extent. We have crossed the boundaries and by incorporating mobile apps in the education industry; the sky is the limit!
