In today’s changing world, innovation in education is no longer a luxury. It’s a necessity, and one that requires boldness and vision. As the Chinese proverb so eloquently put it: "Do not confine your children to your own learning, for they were born in another time." Today's students demand a level of education that blends technological innovation and new, more creative ways of learning. In the following infographic, WebWise Tutors delivers a thought-provoking and visual look at how innovations in education have evolved over the years.
The infographic delves into the tools that were used several hundred years ago to keep students engaged in the learning process. Back then, teachers weren't bound by the conventions of modern society, which is why some implements served double duty, as both pointing devices…and corporal punishment tools. From the chalkboard to the #2 pencil, the handheld calculator to the high-powered tablet computing device, innovations in education have always served to create a better learning environment for students of all ages.
According to WebWise Tutors, innovation in education is an ongoing process that all educators must embrace, a process that can be reduced to a three-step approach. First, it is crucial to appreciate how far we've come in terms of technology in the educational field. Second, it is vital that we stay on top of current trends and understand where the path of technology is taking us. Finally, we must continue to innovate and to create the change that will help refine and improve the entire educational field. The following infographic walks through each of these steps, and reinforces the message that through innovation, education has never been as comprehensive, thorough, and engaging as it is today.
