Emerging Trends in Higher Education Technology

Teachers that use technology solutions like interactive whiteboards, video collaboration systems, and advanced visualization are creating learning spaces equipped for the way students want to learn. And as Brawn Consulting points out, they’re also taking important steps toward preparing their students for their lives after school.

Eighty-five percent of jobs that will exist in 2030 will be new — and will involve technology at a high level. Giving students access to technology solutions can also help them develop and hone life skills, including how to learn and think critically and create presentations.

Brawn Consulting, a venerable consultant to the audio-visual industry, has identified emerging trends in higher education, particularly those related to technology:

  • Students expect seamless technology in the classroom
  • Machine learning will predict student performance
  • Outsourcing more IT systems
  • Remote technical support will be more important to systems security
  • Increased group work and collaboration
  • BYOD adoption will be standard
  • Scalable school systems like cloud-based applications, infrastructure, and collaborative platforms
  • Collaboration tools and video communication will become more prevalent

In light of these trends, Brawn recommends that schools and their teachers:

  • Experiment with the technology that engages students and helps them retain their lessons
  • Focus on scalable cloud-based collaboration systems that include managed support
  • Rely on the International Society for Technology Education, a nonprofit that provides technology and learning resources

You can rely on AVI-SPL to help navigate these trends and integrate the seamless technology students expect and need. To create the classrooms that engage students and prepare them for the evolving job market, contact AVI-SPL at sales@avispl.com or 866-559-8197.
