In a recent news release, ISTE offered the following top five trends to watch this school year:
1. Coding for All Students: Teachers are helping students hone problem-solving skills by infusing coding and computational thinking into courses across the curriculum and encouraging students to become digital content creators.
2. Real-Time Learning Feedback: In an era when we have electronic devices that can measure everything from heart rates to calories burned, education is catching up with real-time learning feedback.
3. VR Is Coming to Town: This school year will likely be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) make a real impact in the classroom.
4. Media Literacy to Combat Fake News: As more information is consumed online, there is an increased focus on media literacy, particularly around recognizing credible sources and valid interpretations of data.
5. Redefining Digital Citizenship: While online safety is critical, it’s only a small subset of digital citizenship. This school year, ISTE thinks there will be a shift in the conversation around digital citizenship to focus on encouraging students to harness tech tools to do good in the world and incite change.
