What do you think will be the main things we'll be seeing in ed tech in 2018?
I believe there will be more personalised professional development for teachers in 2018; edtech-savvy teachers stand at the core of seamless integration of technology in the classroom. Also, another trend that I think will continue to grow this year is the increasing use of artificial Intelligence (AI) in classroom technologies.
What do you think will be the main ed tech challenges in 2018?
The main edtech challenge for this new year will probably remain people’s innate resistance to change. No matter how much technology there is in the classroom, there will always be someone in the school system who’ll avoid any change in it. And if this fear of change will be overcome, then the workload involved in implementing and maintaining ed-tech in the classroom will get on the podium of challenges.
