​The information and communications technology (ICT) industry has come a long way in recent years and is changing how we live, work, and learn. The use of ICT in education is growing rapidly, with more Australian schools turning to it to improve student outcomes and the overall education experience.1-8

Opportunities for the classroom

8 Opportunities for Schools Through ICT

Personalised and interactive learning: Provides students with personalised and interactive experiences, enabling them to learn at their own pace and remain engaged and motivated. Hopefully leading to a lifelong appreciation of learning.

Improved access to resources: Students can receive a wealth of educational resources, including online courses, videos, and interactive simulations. This can help schools overcome geographical and resource limitations.

Enhanced collaboration and communication: Help schools create a more collaborative and connected learning environment, enabling students to team up on projects and assignments, communicate better with each other and their teachers.

Global connectivity: Allows students and teachers to connect with others from around the world, providing opportunities for international collaboration and cultural exchange.

Increased efficiency: Helps automate manual and repetitive tasks involved in student and staff management, freeing up time for teachers and administrators to focus on more important tasks.

Improved assessment and feedback: Provide teachers with powerful tools for assessment and feedback, including online assessments, grading software, and analytics. This can aid in giving students immediate feedback on their performance and identify areas where they need additional support.

Better data and analytics: Schools can collect, analyse, and act on data to improve student outcomes. Enabling them to identify areas of strength and weakness in programs, adjust teaching methods, and track student progress in real time.

Improved accessibility: Overcome barriers to education for students with  disabilities, providing them with the resources and support they need to succeed.

Impact of Technological Innovation on Schools

Emerging technologies are both challenging and improving the approach of schools and educators. Some of the key ones are outlined below.

  • Artificial Intelligence (AI): AI has the potential to revolutionise education by providing personalised learning experiences, intelligent tutoring systems, and automated grading and assessment tools. Schools will likely use AI to create more effective and efficient student learning experiences.
  • Adaptive learning software: Adaptive learning software uses AI algorithms to personalise the learning experience for each student. These tools are disrupting traditional one-size-fits-all approaches to teaching and allowing students to learn at their own pace.
  • Internet of Things (IoT): IoT has the potential to provide schools with new ways of collecting, analysing, and using data. Schools will likely use IoT devices, such as smart sensors and wearable devices, to collect data on student learning and performance and use that data to improve teaching and learning outcomes.
  • Software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN): SD-WAN allows local break-out for cloud services and helps educational institutions reduce bandwidth costs. It also helps with student accessibility, as they now expect to access their course materials either on or off campus.
