Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is growing importance of IoT. The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the most trending technologies used for training teachers. The professional development of teachers is expected to surge in the long run due to the growing importance of IoT. Teachers are increasingly trained about the concept of connected devices to manage administrative tasks, such as transitions, distribution of instruction material, starting or ending a class, and others.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing budgets for teacher training programs. K-12 schools worldwide have witnessed an increase in budget allocation toward the professional development and training of teachers in the latest technologies. This, in turn, has resulted in the provision of various online and offline instructional materials used by teachers to create content and formulate assessments for students. Schools in advanced economies allow teachers to undertake technology training by facilitating mentoring, digital learning, coaching, and informal training.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is expensive training modules. Teacher training can be expensive for various schools and colleges, particularly for newly appointed teachers. The cost incurred on training teachers, particularly, in rapidly advancing technology modules could hamper the growth of the global K-12 technology training for teachers market in the long run. Although the increasing availability of free educational, technological resources has enabled schools to adopt them for training purposes, countries with less penetration of digital platforms still bank on conventional modes of providing professional development to their faculty. This, in turn, could pose a serious threat to the growth of the market in such regions.
