Technology in Education

Recently a report said that education as such would have a high impact due to mobile broadband, mashups, collective intelligence, social operating systems and other collaborative technologies.

Soon, we would see the use of user-generated video created on inexpensive consumer electronics devices. They can be edited and encoded using inexpensive NLEs. Collaborative technologies are already in use in Education. Later, Mashups would be used by universities to represent their information. Mobile broadband is at a very nascent stage for educational purposes and would be useful for project based learning and virtual trips.

Collective intelligence means wikis and other community tagging. Social operating system would play a critical role in next generation social networking by supporting whole new applications with the contacts we have.

The report concludes by saying these could be the meta-trends in education that we need to watch out in next five years!
