Transforming Education and the Digitization of Learning - Wei Oania

 

The education revolution is here. Digitization of learning, although critical, wasn’t on the fast track. The pandemic changed all that. Educators, administrators, communities, and students face new learning challenges, and technology is key to improving access, engagement, and outcomes. Wei Oania, Global Education General Manager for Intel’s Internet of Things Group, shared Intel’s vision and plan with Mariya Zorotovich, host and customer experience advocate at Intel.

“Technology is enabling students to receive the education they deserve and desire without location boundaries. We’re using a data-driven approach to find intuitive ways to teach. Now is the time for smart learning with multiple different delivery methods to ensure learning can be conducted everywhere,” Oania said.

Oania discussed three main areas of focus—equality, efficiency, and personalization—that technology can address. She commented, “Equality is about accessibility, it remains a priority for us. Efficiency improvements can occur with the use of AI to support repetitive tasks so teachers can focus on higher value work. Personalization is key, as education isn’t a one size fits all. We need to make it easier for different learning styles to thrive.”

How does deployment of technology to the classroom work? Some countries have adjusted well to the disruption of COVID-19. Others are struggling. “We’re looking at student-centered approaches and creating an engaging learning environment, whether that be virtual or in-person. Those schools succeeding early already had a digital foundation,” Oania noted.

The mission is to support digital transformation through four stages, which require communities, schools, and the technology ecosystem working together. “We welcome those education solution providers to collaborate with us for pilot programs and define solutions to solve these challenges. The disruption happening now is also an opportunity. With the right technology, we can deliver improved outcomes,” Oania said.
