Vienna (ots /PRNewswire) The tutoring platform GoStudent, together with the British futurologist Tracey Follows, today published the report “The end of school as we know it: education in 2050“. This innovative report looks ahead to an era of education that is highly personalized, location-independent and technology-driven.

  • With AI-driven learning methods and immersive technologies, the school of the future could be anywhere – an era of 100% personalized education is upon us
  • Current report by EdTechs GoStudent in cooperation with British futurologist Tracey Follows shows what learning could look like in 2050 thanks to technological advances
  • Brain computers, immersive learning worlds, learning independent of time and location: What still sounds like science fiction today will be reality in 2050

“Learning through life”: independent of time and place thanks to AI

The often rigid school system as we know it will change drastically as a result of technological progress. In 2050, “school” will no longer be a physical place, but rather an activity that is integrated into the most diverse facets of life and thus becomes “close to life”. Pupils will be able to access teaching units at any time, breaks and holidays will be taken according to individual needs. The review of learning success is AI-supported and continuous, which eliminates the stress of exams.

Recent surveys show educational deficits

According to that GoStudent report on the future of education 57% of German and 53% of Austrian students think that school alone does not optimally prepare them for their dream job. 43% of parents in Germany and 51% in Austria believe that everyday skills are more important for the development of their children than school alone.

Personal interests and talents determine the curriculum

30% of German and 34% of Austrian children state boring lessons as the reason for difficulties concentrating*. Flexible, individualized learning can soon provide an answer to this. In 2050, for example, brain-computer interfaces in the form of glasses or earbuds could support teachers and students in the development of individual curricula. Thanks to neurotechnology, not only personal interests and talents, but also cognitive factors such as receptivity could be included, thus creating optimal learning conditions.

Immersive learning worlds are becoming reality

57% of 14-16 year olds in Europe believe the Metaverse can help them learn effectively*. While GoStudent with Go VR already offers immersive learning experiences today, by 2050 virtual learning environments will be the norm and open up new possibilities. For example, thanks to virtual reality, historical personalities could give students unprecedented, lively insights into history.

Felix Ohswald, Co-Founder and CEO of GoStudent, on the results:Education is at a turning point. In the past, learning was exclusive, highly individualized and highly inaccessible. Later, when education became compulsory, accessibility increased, but as a result it became much less personalized. With the advent of new technologies, especially artificial intelligence, the field of education will change significantly once again. Finally, accessibility and personalization come together! In order to actively shape the future of learning, we must engage with the future. We are excited to see how education will evolve and what that means for us and our mission to reshape education.

Tracey Follows, futurist, author and visiting professor of digital future and identity explains the findings:The future of education is incredibly exciting and dynamic. With the rapid technological advances, we are at the beginning of a technological explosion that will change the entire world. Education will be at the epicenter of this change. The transition to immersive learning, AI-driven personalization, and continuous coaching will revolutionize the way we learn. The educational journey will be tailored to the interests and talents of each individual. At the same time, the classroom will grow beyond its physical limits. Looking ahead to 2050 gives us a glimpse of what’s to come – and the results are fascinating.
