IDC FutureScape: Worldwide Education 2019 Top 10 Predictions

This IDC FutureScape provides worldwide education 2019 top 10 predictions."An education IT initiative is not about how many cutting-edge devices or intelligent solutions will be in next year's budget. The focus should be on discovering and attaining strategic educational outcomes, all enabled by digital innovations. Solutions that boost new teaching pedagogies, enhance student learning, and include growing stakeholder involvement such as parents or alumni participation, for instance, will increasingly be pursued," notes Gerald Wang, Head, Asia/Pacific Public Sector, IDC. "Education institutions need to fully understand outcomes-based deliberations when using new digital technologies. This is because an industry-ready workforce of the future is one that requires change-resilient agile mindsets that constantly seek up-skilling and up-tooling developments while balancing independent and collaborative learning habits in equal measure."
