From the time when we used to go to Gurukuls to the present era where students learn online, Education industry has seen significant changes with the introduction of technology in the domain. We have learnt newer concepts, employed newer tools and experienced various new methods to enjoy a seamless, personalized and interactive ways of learning and teaching.
But, what’s next?

If you are excited to know what new technologies will enter the Education arena and how the technologies will transform the Education realm in 2019 and beyond, here are some of the predictions you must consider:

Mobile Learning

Smartphones and mobile apps will continue to influence the Education industry. The technology will be widely used across the globe to provide education to a wider audience, foster user engagement, ensure higher information exchange, and streamline processes among the students, teachers, and institutions. And this scenario will reach the next level with the introduction of 5G technology.

AI and Big Data

The power of Big Data and AI-based analytics will also revamp the education sector in 2019. The technology will help the teachers and parents to evaluate their students learning capabilities and performance in real-time and take the right steps for improving their grades. The technologies, in other words, will make it easier for the education system to improve their criteria of grading the students and help the students to choose the right career for a healthier and prosperous future.


AR/VR will set up the foundation of a new era of digital transformation in the Education sector. The technology will enable the students and teachers to travel around the world without leaving their classroom and get an immersive experience of studying, which will encourage them to attend classes and learn effectively.

As predicted by the market experts, more than 70% of the educational organizations will invest in VR-based Education app development and VR-based helmets by 2022 to ensure a perfect learning experience. With the upcoming 5G technology, these numbers are also predicted to elevate, ensuring robust connectivity and lower latency.

Digital Twins

We often build multiple digital profiles of people, devices, systems, and physical assets to use for different means. The Digital twins concept will let them synchronize their digital identities/copies and help to analyze the overall performance of the individual and create a far effective personalized learning schedule.


Considering Education sector accounting for around 4.5% of the 2,300 data breaches disclosed in 2018, the industry will head towards implementing the best security measures in 2019. The educational institutions and others belonging to the domain will understand how important it is to safeguard their sensitive information and will look into different elements that put the security at risk. They will integrate various security practices into their existing and developing models. One such security measure will be Cyber hygiene, which enables the end users to learn how to safeguard their sensitive information from getting into the hands of cyber hackers.

Edge Computing

Last but least, another major trend that you will experience in the Education domain is Edge Computing. The concept will ensure that the information is gathered, stored and processed at the edges itself so that only efficient amount of data is transferred to the centralized cloud. This will lessen the load and risk associated with data transmission as well as ease the access to learning material.

Besides, the Edge computing will enable the AR/VR-based applications to easily transmit and receive data, learn faster from the environment, and thus deliver better services.

The aforementioned are some of the EdTech trends that I found to significant enough to transform the domain in 2019, what are your picks? Share in the comment section below.
