Tech Trends in Education 2018
Education often falls behind the business world in realising the potential of new technologies. There are, however, a few bright spots where the timing might be right for the tech trends in the business world to have a positive impact in education sector.

Intelligent Apps and Analytics
Intelligent apps are the human-interface to AI. The big idea here is that the human experience is improved when informed by AI. It is not just AI – it is AI interacting with human intelligence, preferences, and dispositions, including motivational dispositions.
Things connected to the internet increasingly have access to AI. Everything from smart phones and cameras, to robotic vacuum cleaners, to refrigerators that remind you by text message to buy milk. In education, innovation has been enabled through a growing a collection of internet-connected technologies and devices – such as interactive whiteboards, ebooks, digital highlighters and pens and much more to provide real-time data and valuable insights to students,teachers and administration.
