Power of learning with technology!
In the fast-paced, ever-evolving landscape of education, technology is playing an increasingly vital role. From elementary schools to universities and beyond, the integration of technology into the learning process has become a game-changer. This issue, we explore the remarkable impact of technology on education and its potential to shape the future of learning.
Technology has unlocked a wealth of opportunities, enabling students and educators to connect, collaborate, and learn in ways previously unimaginable. One of the most significant advantages of technology in education is its ability to tailor learning experiences to individual needs. Adaptive learning platforms use algorithms and data analytics to create personalized learning paths for each student. As Eirik Wahlstrøm, CEO and Co-founder of Ludenso puts it, “AR is an incredibly useful tool to help students who struggle to learn through the traditional methods. We are currently in the final stages of a research project on accessibility, to empower students with dyslexia, ADHD,and other neurodiverse profiles. We see AR as an opportunity to help engage with these students in a new way.”
Sustainability has become a growing concern in business and publishing is no exception. “The contribution to the 17 UN SDGs via new knowledge creation, dissemination, and citation to further grow hubs and networks in these areas is an ongoing effort. As also the impact of this research on government policy and industry, though real-world measurement of outcomes remains a challenge. Technology supports data generation to take credible decisions for supporting both outcomes and their measurement as we progress on this route,” says Nitasha Devasar, Managing Director and Commercial Lead, South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa, Taylor & Francis Group.
Technology has eliminated geographical boundaries, enabling students and educators to collaborate with peers and experts from around the world. While, Gauthier Van Malderen, CEO, Perlego, shares, “Students’ expectations are changing from technology; people no longer want tech to give them the ability to find what ever they want, but to know what they want and surface it to them. Smart algorithms and AI are expected to play a strong role in this.”
Publishers play a pivotal role in the integration of technology into learning. They are at the forefront of developing and providing educational content that aligns with the latest technological advancements.
Frankfurt Book Fair and Sharjah International Book Fair will offer immense opportunities for publishers and other stakeholders in the industry to network and mutually grow together.
