With the advancement of technologies, the method of learning and teaching in education is also changing. While some universities are already adapting higher technology, at the same time some schools are also using modern tech to teach. We can say that new tech including software, apps, hardware, etc. is a revolution for modern classrooms. Here are some examples that are emerging technologies in education –

  • 3D tech
  • Classcraft
  • Seesaw
  • YouTube
  • Nearpod VR
  • Projectors
  • Smart-boards and tables
  • Digital notepads and tablets and many more.

Children these days are already hooked with gizmos and gadgets and there’s no denying that they will better respond with digital boards, projectors, etc. in short a smart classroom.

Many studies show that learning through pictures and videos increases higher thinking skills. Some schools have even started using school LMS (Learning Management Software) equipped with present-day technologies like 3D, computer games, and augmented reality, etc.

Here are some of the emerging trends –

  • AR (Augmented Reality)
  • AI (Artificial Intelligence)
  • VR (Virtual Reality)

Augmented Reality (AR):

According to Wikipedia “Augmented reality is an interactive experience of a real-world environment where the objects that reside in the real world are enhanced by computer-generated perceptual information.”

So it is a tech where you can see and do things as in the real world. Here are some examples –

  • Houzz
  • YouCam Makeup
  • Snapchat
  • Pokémon Go, etc.

AR in Education –

AR is already a huge success in the gaming and entertainment sectors and it is equally powerful in the education sector.

Let’s see some examples of AR tech in education

  • Dinosaur 4D+
  • Elements 4D
  • Google Expeditions, etc.

Augmented Reality tech can make classes more interactive by letting teachers get actively involved within the process while students on the other hand can learn better by augmenting plain 2D figures into 3D interactive models.

AR tech such as Expeditions can be operated with minimal hardware requirements as a smartphone or tablet camera is enough to scan a picture and convert it into an enhanced 3-Dimensional model.

Artificial Intelligence (AI):

Artificial Intelligence is one of the most powerful and popular technologies in the present time. But when we talk about AI often comes in mind as robots portrayed in science fiction movies.

But let us take some real-life AI techs such as SIRI, self-driving cars, smart beds, Google maps, and many more. While AI is already changing the world from robotics to apps, it is also used in educational sectors by automating the normal methods of administration and teaching.

AI in Education –

Artificial Intelligence is already making huge impacts such as smart administrative tasks, smart content like pictures and videos, video lectures, podcasts, conferencing, etc. Some apps and websites give personalized recommendations for each student and also foreign studies have made easy. With time AI will get more useful for both educators and learners.

Virtual Reality (VR):

VR is very popular in the gaming industry; some examples are Lone Echo, Minecraft, etc. It is also a huge success in movies. But VR in education can transform the way content is delivered. The imagination of a student can become a reality, learn by doing it, developed creativity; high tech training can be achieved with VR, which will impact the learning experience. VR is a better way of learning which will impact in a great way while viewing on their screen.


These trends will be the future in every industry; it is already very much popular in the gaming and entertainment industry. These are also widely used in the manufacturing and production industries for automation. From scientific labs to robotics everyone is using AI, VR, or AR. These emerging technologies in the education sector will help students to be more effective learners and productive in their work.

Here are list of some apps and tools that you can check out –
