Emerging Tech Trends in Education for 2024

The future of education is evolving just as rapidly as technology. 

Emerging tech trends impact the way students learn and what skills they should be prepared with for the future, making it our responsibility as parents to be in the loop to support our kids best. 

We’ve put together a list of the top emerging tech trends in education for 2024 and how you can help your child stay on top of their tech education. 

Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Ever since the introduction of ChatGPT, AI has been evolving rapidly. 

In 2024, we can expect a shift toward the use of AI in STEM education. More educators are using AI tools to build curriculums, as well as grade assignments, but students also get the benefit of using this amazing technology in their STEM courses. 

AI in education will come to a point where assistive technologies will make it possible to create learner-centric virtual classrooms that allow students of all backgrounds to get a quality learning experience.

In preparation for these advancements, Lavner Education offers Artificial Intelligence Camps, giving kids and teens hands-on experience with AI programs and bots. AI can be used in anything from giving robots personalities with AI to creating a bot that can play chess against you, and more. 

Of course, it will also be paramount for students to learn about AI ethics, the limitations of AI, and more, with all of the above taught at summer camp by Lavner Education. 

Robotics and Automation

In the same way artificial intelligence is taking the world by storm, robotics and automation are other tech trends making an impact on education in 2024. 

Machine learning can be found in all sectors, from medical to industrial, and robots are going to be a huge part of the workforce by the time your kids begin their careers. It is estimated that the Educational Robot Market will be worth around $8.1 billion by 2032.

Educational robotics in 2024 will help your kids learn how to interact with, create, and maintain these machines so that they’re ready for the future. 

Lavner Education offers several robotics camps and courses that teach student how to build and code robots while learning critical thinking and problem-solving skills. 

3D Printing & 3D Modeling

Once a new and unreliable technology, 3D & 3D Modeling in 2024 has several applications. 

Sure, 3D printing can be used to create toys, jewelry, and other fun things, but today, it can be used in ways that once seemed impossible. 

The technology for 3D printing has come a long way and now serves as a reliable way to create things like prosthetics for people with disabilities and parts for robotic creations. Teaching children about the art of 3D printing technology and software is the best way to prepare the next generation of professionals who can use it to change lives and create new, more affordable, and reliable technologies. 

Lavner Education makes learning 3D printing engaging for kids by combining the process with the ability to make their favorite video game creations come to life, putting an innovative spin on STEM education.

Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality

Virtual reality has come a long way, and 2024 has seen high-powered VR and AR devices like the Apple Vision Pro and Meta Quest 3 hit the market. These technologies have a wide range of applications, from home entertainment use to giving teens the opportunity to experience different civilizations and STEM demonstrations from the comfort and safety of their homes.

Courses like coding and computer skills from Lavner Education are a great way to introduce your child to the innermost workings of these technologies that make VR and AR possible, while game development and web development can help your child develop the necessary skills to work on creating the programs that can run on these devices. 

When it comes to wearing AR and VR headsets, it is paramount that you check the age recommendations on the devices and ensure that your child does not use these devices until they are old enough to do so.  

Sustainable Tech and Green Computing

2024 is critical to teaching kids about sustainability and climate education. 

Green computing—also known as sustainable computing—aims to maximize energy efficiency and reduce the carbon footprint left behind by computer hardware and software design and production. 

The rising use of electricity is contributing to rising global temperatures, making it important for educators to help children understand how to look at these concerns and how to develop technologies that can offset the negative impacts older technologies have had on the environment. 

A combination of 3D printing, robotics, computer skills, and AI courses from summer camps like the ones offered by Lavner Education is a great way to introduce kids to sustainable tech and green computing in 2024.

Additionally, introducing your child to the world of tech start-ups can inspire them to go on and establish their own organization to tackle these challenges in the future. 

Health Tech Innovations

Virtual doctor visits and at-home testing kits are here to stay, and that means 2024 will continue bringing new health tech innovations that will impact the medical field. 

In terms of education, one such prediction is that digital lab spaces will become a more popular way to educate the next generation of medical professionals. These labs empower educators to proctor immersive online simulations, giving more students access to hands-on experiences.

Lavner Education offers a STEM and Medicine Camp that introduces your children to the medical field. They’ll get the opportunity to learn about the body’s structure, body systems, and skills that are used to treat patients along with how STEM principles like math relate to medicine and standard medical tests.

Lavner Education Is Paving The Way Towards The Future of Education

There’s no doubt that these emerging tech trends in 2024 will represents important pathways in STEM for years to come, so let’s make sure your child is prepared. 

Lavner Education offers a wide range of courses in our summer camps that help children keep up with these important tech trends. From AI and robotics to coding and web development, we’re dedicated to ensuring your kids stay ahead and do not get left behind.
