Top Education Trends to Look Out For in 2022

It’s no secret that technology in the classroom provides students with an education that’s more flexible and personalized. The Covid-19 pandemic created new challenges and opportunities with technology through virtual learning. In 2022, regardless of in-person or virtual, you can expect to see an emphasis on the process of facilitating learning versus simply teaching.

Here’s a look at the top education trends to watch for in 2022.

Educational neuroscience.

Although it’s still an emerging field, neuroeducation can help identify the best methods when it comes to learning skills and concepts. Neuroeducation addresses issues like attention and focus and uses alternative methods to cater lessons to an individual’s learning styles.


Overloading students with cumbersome lessons are becoming a thing of the past. Microlearning uses repetitive learning to digest smaller portions of a lesson, with the goal of increasing retention over time.

Online learning.

Whether you like it or not, online learning is here to stay. This also includes online courses. Learning Management Systems (LMS) are making it easier for anyone to create and host online courses.

Artificial intelligence.

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) have already found their place in K-12 classrooms. AI is used for tasks like administering and grading in online examination systems. Features such as voice assistance and cyber security will continue to advance, making technology in the classroom safer, easier to operate, more personalized.

Virtual reality and augmented reality.

Both virtual and augmented reality tools have the ability to incorporate real-life scenarios and locations into traditional learning without leaving the classroom.

Science-based approaches to learning will continue to find their place in the advancement of educational technologies. As advances in technology promise to revolutionize not only instruction but also assessments and testing procedures, education will become increasingly inclusive for all learning levels and styles.
