The “first wave” of digital education focused on creating, sharing, and accessing instructional content in digital forms, including online courses, digital libraries, games, and apps. But with government, schools, and businesses now demanding connected learning, the near future sees a second wave of digital education that moves from content to connections.
The new digital education system is driven by 3 connectors:
- The integrated digital education ecosystem consisting of parents, teachers, peers, administrators.
- An integrated student learning lifecycle where educators and trainers connect in-classroom and real-world learning in a way that is tailored to the needs, learning styles, passion, and potential of each student.
- Integrated technology solutions so Ed-tech solution providers can draw upon their individual technology strengths and competencies to partner and offer integrated solutions.
