Technological development continues to affect our lives, dictating new rules. In recent times, all spheres of our lives have undergone significant transformations. Education has not escaped that phenomenon. It is constantly changing, becoming more flexible, accessible, and advanced.
The value of the education technology sector (EdTech) is expected to increase to $680 million by 2027. It is more due to mobile technology, cloud services, and virtual reality, which will create new opportunities for affordable, fascinating learning.
Forbes has compiled a list of the biggest education and training technology trends in 2022, so let's take a look at them.
Lifelong learning (subscription services)
Lifelong learning aims at a person's independent desire to learn and explore the world. In the current reality, we no longer need to limit ourselves to educational institutions to work in one field for the rest of our lives.
Now, the education model is very different from that known to our parents or grandparents. Access to technology provides fast, high-quality, and up-to-date learning from anywhere in the world. For example, the world-famous online services Coursera or Udemy give access to thousands of "micro-courses." Everyone can choose what they like and learn new skills in weeks or months.
