Student Engagement In E - Learning

10 Hottest K 12 Solution Companies- 2021

 

Technological innovations for learning had already been steadily growing over the past years, before the accelerated acquisition in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The crisis has mounted pressure on the educational institutions to deliver enhanced digital learning experiences marked by connectivity and collaboration. To that end, cutting-edge technologies are playing a vital role in enabling these hybrid and remote e-learning environments.

In that regard, a technology that is hugely benefitting educators in improving teaching and learning methods is artificial intelligence (AI). Besides easing the workload for teachers, AI aids in customizing the curriculum, enhancing the feedback process, and personalizing learning experiences. Especially during online classes, AI can derive data from student information systems (SIS) and activity logs. Based on that information, AI can provide customized and actionable recommendations, which will enable both educators and students to focus on areas that need to be improved.

Notably, cloud-computing tools, including infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), platform-as-a-service (PaaS), and software-as-a-service (SaaS), are giving the K 12 system the much-needed agility and flexibility during this crisis. They allow educational institutions to store and handle massive volumes of data while also supporting distance learning initiatives. Meanwhile, gamification is another technology that has started to pick up steam in the K 12 education realm. Gamification is helping students to break away from the age-old monotonous way of learning and adapt to modern learning environments.

At this juncture, there is a variety of K 12 solution providers available in the market that cater to the different needs of educational institutions. To help them choose the solution provider that best fits their requirement, Education Technology Insights has compiled a list of the 10 hottest K 12 solution providers.
