New Technology in Education Heading Into 2015 Technology has revolutionized the world in all the aspects of life from a single flower cross breed to man leaving behind his marks on skies. You may consider how fast things are evolving and wish to keep up and advance with the changing trends. New methods are also being adopted in education. Likewise, stepping into 2015, we review some new educational trends for this year.

They make different approaches such as project-based learning, game-based learning and maker education will continue to be explored as personalized blended learning models.

Mobile learning Mobile learning apps are expected to be improved in the next year that is great source of “distinct education”. Group chats and conference meeting make a group study stress free. Technology for flipped-learning The rationale behind the flipped class, a method of education in which the students watch online or on board videos, lectures either in class or at home just to make the student realize the beneficial way of using their devices, is to engage learners in and out of the classroom. This approach makes the students learn the lesson in an environment full of fun. Actually a student only gains the root of the concept when he is enjoying it. If you are pressurizing him to pour the lesson into his mind, then you are doing nothing but wasting energy. Experts are agreed that flipped class rooms are far away better than the older LMS (learning management system) as the videos/lectures enhance the interactivity. Analytics should also be recorded so as to measure the students’ interests and adopting those respective modes.
