Literature review: Technology problem for Education

This “Ten Problems for Education in the 2020s” booklet identifies ten relevant areas from very recent contributions put forward at academic level in the form journal articles, conference proceedings and students theses. Ten freely accessible internet references have been selected for each area and direct links are provided at the end of each chapter for own consultation. Our selected references do not intend to mirror ranking indexes nor establish novel classifications. On the contrary, they are meant to represent peer-reviewed, diverse and scientifically-sound case studies for vertical dissemination aimed at non-specialist readers. They will also be able to scoop even more references through the bibliography that is reported at the end of each selected reference.

Without further ado, these are the ten problems that we are going to introduce in this booklet:

  1. funding, 
  2. safety,
  3. technology,
  4. standardization,
  5. teachers,
  6. lifelong learning,
  7. diversity,
  8. creativity,
  9. accreditation,
  10. new trends.

Each problem has its own dedicated chapter made of an introductory section, a short presentation of the ten selected references and a conclusions section.

The final chapter of this booklet will report the conclusions from each chapter again in order to provide a complete executive summary.

3 Technology

THE PROBLEM — The study of educational technology is under-theorized and often criticized as methodologically weak. There are challenges that include hardware (hardware), software (software) and brainware (users). Centers for teaching and learning can provide crucial leadership for creating a rich teaching and learning culture on a campus. Artificial intelligence and big data uses are also being assessed, while distance and online learning are expected to play a bigger role in underdeveloped countries. Countries are assessing their options individually and locally, though, without any agreed and global framework as a reference.

CONCLUSIONS — The study of educational technology is under-theorized and often criticized as methodologically weak. In many cases, hardware, software and users do not cooperate well, which leads to imbalances and diminished outcomes. Centers for Teaching and Learning support faculty to hit targets while fostering a generative teaching and learning culture, and a supportive community. The application of big data and artificial intelligence technology to university information teaching is still at early stage. Distance learning and technology are creating a positive impact on the educational services of underdeveloped countries. Decisions are being made about which technologies, institutions, funding lines, research, pedagogies, relations, designs, etc., to prioritize. There has been no shortage of exciting technologies, but the failure to engage teachers has meant that most did little or anything to improve educational outcomes. E-learning implementation during the COVID-19 pandemic gives a variety of practical benefits to university students in the virtual English class. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Chinese government has taken active action and the unprecedented large-scale “Cloud Examination” has been adopted in the graduate entrance examination. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the need for transformation of remote learning to not only survive a wave of crisis, but to potentially fit the new normal.
