As student needs continue to evolve, Matthew Rascoff joins the dean of the Stanford Graduate School of Education (GSE), Dan Schwartz, and senior professor Denise Pope to discuss the future of digital education and how well-designed technologies can take into account student needs from the start. K-12 programs that prioritize digital for basic education, complementary support and personalized intervention are becoming increasingly popular. Our executive leadership team and our visions for the future of education are clear: the future is digital. New advances in technology, such as augmented reality and cloud-based learning, offer students the opportunity to keep up with our ever-changing world quickly, as well as to bring students from all over the world closer together.
The digital revolution has helped to level the playing field when it comes to the quality of education available to students. Lamar University's online applied digital learning is ideal for educators involved in incorporating digital learning into their schools. Over the past two years, the education industry has seen a whole new chapter in digital learning as the pandemic spread around the world and forced classes to move to the Internet. Today's students have much more access to digital materials and can enjoy the benefits of digital learning.
A master's degree in education can help you adapt to changing digital trends, whether you're a teacher, learning technologist, or even working in another educational environment, such as a museum. Fortunately, digital and hybrid educational models have helped many students reach the end of the school year without being left behind. However, from top-down initiatives to individual examples of innovation, it's clear that digital learning will shape education for years to come. In the same way, digital learning is changing the future of education, as its acceptance by government bodies is manifested in initiatives. As learning resumes on university campuses, Rascoff highlights the importance of differentiating between true digital education and improvised remote learning.
Over time, digital education is at the forefront, as educators look for new ways to keep their students engaged and help them excel. Digital citizenship is also becoming increasingly important, as students learn how to be good digital citizens and remain professional in a digital environment.
