40 Ways Education Technology Will Be Used In The Future

Do you know what technology you’ll be using in the classroom 5 years from now? What about 10 years from now? A new visualization may be able to help.

Thanks to the hard work by Envisioning Tech, it’s simple to see what we could expect to happen in the next few decades. From today’s iPads to holograms in the year 2040, there’s a lot coming to a classroom near you.

Better still, the visualization below is categorized into color-coded topics. This is one of the most impressive visualizations / infographics I’ve ever seen (and I get like 5-10 every day, so that’s actually saying something) and hope you enjoy it as well.

Want to post this up in the teacher’s lounge or on your desk? Use this PDF for easy printing and in-person sharing.

Do you agree with the what this visualization says about the future? Do you think we’ll be seeing some immersive virtual reality, holograms, telepresence, and an influx of algorithms into the classroom? Weigh in down in the comments or on the Edudemic Facebook page!

    Great article! I have no doubt we are moving in that direction. In terms of technology, I am pretty sure will get there, when more virtual reality and other futuristic tools and programs would be available for teaching/learning. However, I am not sure how feasible would be to implement in terms of cost/effectiveness. It is hard to imagine, when still today, with all the technology available, lots of students are carrying heavy backpacks filled with huge textbooks to school … :S
    In a possitive tone, i really enjoy and support the transition from the traditional (digital) classroom to the studio setting as described in the visualization ;) I think more and more educators are experiencing the benefits of this learning/teaching approach…. Which hopefully would be more widely inplemented in the near future.
