Online PR News – 16-April-2012 – Gurgaon – Everywhere you look, people are using their smart phones, iPads, and tablets to access the Web. With the proliferation of such devices, it's only natural to start tinkering with the idea of exploring opportunities that can be created and explored. The increasing usage of smartphones is causing a tectonic shift in the education and publishing industry. Some of these changes include:
• Increased proliferation of tablet and smartphones in the market, forcing schools to relent and allow devices into schools.
• Improved broadband access to account for increased mobile tech use.
• A surge in “bring your own device” (and the need to accommodate for it) in schools as students use their own mobile tech for school and home learning.
• Expanded use of ebooks and online instructional materials as the main learning resource rather than as supplementary pieces.
• Rise of digital content curation services to help users make sense of all available resources.
• Growth in creation of and use of open source materials that allow for greater collaboration and cross-device use.
• Further integration of social networking integrated into learning to increase student collaboration and connections with teachers.
• Move to cloud computing and online classroom management systems that gather student achievement data and allow for more personalized instruction.
• Adoption of the flipped classroom, where the traditional lecture is accessed at home through videos or podcasts, and the students spend their class time working with teachers and peers on projects, discussions, and collaborative learning.
• Explosion of “truly educational gaming.”
