Now that the “new normal” is either fully virtual or hybrid education, Turner Tech knows how important it is for schools to stay protected. The idea of having a kindergarten student’s account getting hacked into and showing a small child pornography is something that every parent and teacher have nightmares about.

Big Data, Machine Learning, and the Internet of Things (IoT) continue to be the biggest educational technology trends. However, distance learning has become the one trend that rules them all. The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically changed the way we teach and learn. Students now have to get used to distance learning via digital platforms due to social distancing. Even though some schools are reopening, this trend may continue.

The latest Educational Technology (EdTech) trends are being revolutionized with a strong focus on connectivity, versatility, and student-centered learning. In short, EdTech is simply the is a process of integrating technology into education to build better teaching/learning experiences that result in higher learning outcomes.

Additionally, the Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) from blockchain brings so many benefits to education, especially data storage. Every time new data is added, it adds another “block” to the system, so the storage is technically limitless. Simultaneously, the data will be encrypted and distributed across multiple computers in the system. It makes transacting data decentralized and transparent.

Blockchain technology is used in Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and ePortfolios to verify skills and knowledge. The DLT systems will answer the problems of authentication, scale, and cost for eLearning agencies. Moreover, it can help student applicants publish their accomplishments during the job-seeking phase.
