Why educational technlogy has been failing?

We have reached a point in our lives that would seem impossible to previous generations, thanks to the technological improvements that have bettered our daily lives. We have also seen the rise of EdTech around the world during the last few years however most of those solutions are still lacking in most schools around the globe. It really disappoints me the fact that today’s teachers still use realia, photocopies, and plain books to teach Gen Z students, the so called “Digital natives”, who were born with a smartphone on one hand and a mouse on the other. A variety of issues are to blame for this situation.

Life-long learning

Learning is not limited to a single, specific phase in life, that of the years at school, but also happens in different contexts, over the course of a lifetime. With its strategic framework for European cooperation in education and training, ET2020, the European Union supports the concept of lifelong learning by coordinating cooperation between Member States on training and formal, non-formal, and informal education.

Therefore an extensive variety of educational platforms have been developed that offer courses which spread from business and computer science to public health and marketing. One of the most notable is Coursera.

What is Coursera?

Founded in 2012 by professors of Stanford University, Coursera has gradually accumulated a catalog of hundreds of courses from elite institutions such as Stanford, Duke, Michigan and HEC Paris. Coursera possesses the largest and most eclectic catalog for online higher education.
