Learning will never be the same: Big Data in education

It doesn’t matter which era you’re from, it is evident that the classroom has changed significantly of late. With the proliferation of tablets and laptops, some children receive these aids before they can even read. Sixty words per minute is the rate at which second grade students are expected to type, to take computer-based tests. Beginning as early as pre-school, a child can leave a digital trail stretching their entire educational years, with details such as name, address, DOB, media and behavioural history entered into an administrative system.

Data collection and technology in the school system are a reality, with fast changes, it is nearly impossible to predict what the children of the future will accept as the norm for education.
