In the decades to come, schools will be very different from what they are today.
Much of this is because of advances in technology, which will be used to make
school more fun and effective. In my opinion, there are three key things that
the school of the future will have that we do not have now. They are mobile
learning, use of multimedia learning, and learning designed to fit each student.
mobile learning will enable us to learn even without coming to school. The main
tool that we use to do this is the Internet. The Internet, when integrated into
the school, will enable teachers and students to communicate with each other
instantly, no matter where they are. This concept also includes the virtual
classroom, where everyone can see and speak to each other within a virtual
environment. This lets schools provide education to students in any place,
removing the limitations of travel time and distance.
Technology will also allow the school of the future to increase the use of
multimedia instead of textbooks. In future, schools will be equipped with
screens or even holographic displays, which will be used to show students
videos, pictures, and sound in order to teach students a topic. Examples of this
would include showing videos of historical events instead of just reading about
them in a textbook. This would certainly improve learning among students.
Finally, technology will allow teachers to design lessons to suit each
student. Using computer software, teachers would be able to monitor a student's
progress quickly and easily, and make more advanced topics available to the
student if he or she is capable of handling more. This would ensure that no weak
student would be left with an incomplete understanding of a topic, and no strong
student would be frustrated by a lack of more challenging topics to learn.
Technology would also make it easier for teachers to test each student according
to his ability level, removing the frustration of competition in today's
In conclusion, the schools of the future will be quite different from the
schools of today largely because of technological advances. Nevertheless, all we
can do for now is guess, as no one knows for certain what will happen in the
