3 tech tips to make higher education ripe for creativity
- Ed Tech Magazine profiles a new survey from Adobe Education, which suggests that more than 9 out of 10 college students believe that classroom technology is an essential part of becoming career ready.
- Technology provides differing levels of engagement, which can help students in all majors discover passions and career opportunities they never thought possible through engineering and design, collaboration and artistic expression.
- More than 50% of students taking the survey believe they are part of a generation that is more creative than their predecessors.
Technology is the catalyst which can help ordinary students think of and develop amazing ideas. Facebook, Napster, and other groundbreaking ideas were the brainchildren of college students, who all gained inspiration and training in college classrooms which led to the ideas which changed the world, through addressing social needs no one knew they had.
Instead of allowing students space and free reign to create these ideas in dorm rooms, colleges should consider collaboration with students through maker spaces and innovation hubs to guide in developing and to hopefully share a piece of the revenue which may come from such development.
