Top 6 emerging technologies in education

Education in the traditional sense of a teacher holding a book and speaking to a class full of kids has changed. The inventions of modern science and technology have been blended with traditional teaching techniques to make learning an interesting and interactive experience.

Cloud computing and mobile technology are in vogue as schools and colleges cut down on expenses by using Google Apps and complete and review projects at writing tasks online with collaborative and constructive feedback. Mobile phones are becoming increasingly powerful and students are using i-phones and Android devices increasingly to complete their school-work.
Gaming as a teaching concept is in its development stages and in the next two years will be deployed as a teaching mechanism. Open source or ‘free content’ is where the world is heading to as the emphasis increases on the ‘one world - free knowledge’ concept. 
Learning Analytics and Personal Learning Environments - In five years these will be the future of education or rather ‘intelligent education’ as learner behaviour, preferences, test marks, etc, will be incorporated to provide an enhanced and customised learning experience to the student.
