The advancement of technology can be utilized in every sector of life. It is also included in the education sector. The utilizing of technology in learning process can make the process more accessible and affordable. Even the advantage of technology development arose highly during the pandemic last time which led the used of online learning at that time. After the pandemic, some of the school uses the hybrid system which combines the online learning and the conventional learning.
In this 2023, the technology trends become more various. Some of the edtech startups starts to implement the technologies like augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR). Some of the technology below is the innovation of education technology, such as:
- Immersive Learning
The immersive technologies combine the traditional learning and online learning. The immersive learning supports the E-learning which can improve the accessibility and flexibility. One of the Indian startups provides an immersive content creation platform for school and colleges which allows users to make books and lectures more interactive, creative and boost the curiosity of students.
- Artificial Intelligence (AI)
We often discuss about how AI has participated in the learning process. AI and machine learning-based replace some manual tasks such as the attendance tracking and activity monitoring.

During this pandemic, the education technology startup develops customized online platforms. It enables the access into the learning process more flexible and more effective. One of the startup in US offers an online school for students from grades 4 to 8 and provides customized learning routines along with the interactive content.
- Gamified Learning
The innovation of gamification learning combines the learning practices with game mechanism. One of the Turkish startup provides the interactive STEM content through gamified learning experiences. They offer an AR-based virtual platform. This goes align with the US-based startup which is also developed a VR platform that replaces the physical classrooms.
- Cloud Computing
The feature of Cloud enables the cloud-based learning that can digitize tasks in a traditional classroom. Some of the platforms offer the recorded classes over the cloud for the easier accessibility. A Nigerian startup creates a cloud-based school management system which automates various activities from student admission to certificate offerings.
