CES: How 5G Is Poised to Shape Education in 2021

This MarketScale industry update saw host Daniel Litwin rewelcome special guest Kevin Hogan, host of MarketScale’s Remote Possibilities and edtech industry expert.

It’s an interesting time for technology in education – with vaccines rolling out around the world and many students already back in school with precautions like masks and social distancing in place, it’s likely that the trend of moving back to in-person education will continue.

However, that doesn’t mean the role of technology will be diminished. In fact, in the wake of the transformative COVID-19 pandemic and the rollout of 5G, technology’s role is set to continue on its upward trajectory.

At CES this year, Verizon’s CEO and chairman Hans Vestberg gave a keynote on 5G and linked it to how it will support student learning. Beside its major rollouts of augmented and virtual reality technology to immersive sports experiences with the NFL and museums like the Met and Smithsonian, it also sees opportunities for VR in schools.

Verizon CRO Rose Stuckey Kirk said the company plans to expand its Innovative Learning program by giving VR technology to low-income middle and high schools.

Litwin and Hogan broke down Verizon’s commitment to get 5G to 100 schools by the end of 2021, the potential uses and role of AR and VR in education settings, the edtech needs that 5G connectivity could answer in 2021 and beyond, the viability of 5G deployment at scale, and more.
