Examples of Emerging Technologies for Teaching and Learning

As leaders in implementing IT solutions for education, we are across all emerging technologies for teaching and learning. We have a team of in-house experts who specialise in technologies designed to enhance the learning experience, improve the efficiencies and effectiveness of teaching & how schools are managed. We have teams that work alongside Microsoft and HEA (Home Education Association) that enable emerging technologies for teaching and learning to be accessible in home learning environments. A team that specialises in The Fuse Cup, an international network of schools providing students with an opportunity to participate in a safe, supportive & structured Esports competition.

We have the capability and expertise to implement, manage and provide ongoing support for tailored education IT solutions designed to adapt as new emerging technologies for teaching and learning come available.

In terms of the latest emerging technologies for teaching and learning to look out for, here are three technology spaces that are transforming modern learning environments with new technologies coming through:

Virtual and Augmented Reality

Currently, virtual and augmented reality are already being used in education. Examples include creating immersive experiences such as virtual field trips, displaying 3D objects and developing computing & technology skills. However new VR and AR emerging technologies for teaching and learning will take these applications to the next level.

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning

AI is one of the most topical emerging technologies in education currently. AI has seen significant change, advancement and uptake in recent times and this has and will continue to change the education landscape in terms of how we teach, learn and manage schools. AI can help free up teachers’ time by completing mundane administrative tasks such as grading, assessment, answering student questions & providing feedback – enabling them to focus on other areas of teaching. AI can be utilised for intelligent tutoring systems providing more personalised learning. On the flip side, this emerging technology in education does still require careful planning and consideration in terms of ethics, accountability, transparency and awareness.


Emerging gamification technologies in education are enabling more engaging and interactive learning experiences. Examples of gamification currently being used in the classroom include Minecraft, The Fuse Cup, Kahoot and Archy Learning. This technology space will continue to grow as it is proving to be an effective way for students to learn, engage, collaborate and be more motivated.

Impact of Emerging Technologies on Education

The impact of emerging technologies in education presents both benefits and challenges. Whilst emerging technologies for teaching and learning can open up new possibilities, schools need to ensure they have the right level of knowledge, expertise and support to implement these technologies effectively, safely, sustainably and ethically. Partnering with an IT provider will ensure you have the right solution in place for planning, procurement, ongoing management, training and support.
