It might sound like science fiction, but we are getting to the stage where technology is having a hugely significant impact on every area of our lives. It’s affecting things like how and where we work, to how we make social connections, and entertain ourselves. But what are some of the most recent development that we should all be aware of?
Something in tech that we should all be aware of is the rise of VLEs or virtual learning environments. As this is something that is revolutionizing educational institutions from school to universities.
The idea is that all the resources, links, and information you need in online all in one place. Freeing up both staff and students to dedicate more of their time to the actual processes of learning and not the duller administration side of things.
Of course, this isn’t the only technology breakthrough that educational institutions are using. In fact, universities and their use of tech are a big deal right now in both fields. As there are things like smart whiteboards, interactive lessons, and social media, that all have a place in the 21st-century learning environment.
Another way that technology could revolutionize your life is through remote working. This when you choose the location that you work, and use a computer and interact connection to stay up to date with your company and colleges.
Some folks use this opportunity to work at home, for reducing their commute time, meaning that they are more present for their families.
While others use the opportunity to remote work to travel the world and see new places while still earning a regular income and holding down a career job role.
Just think how much your life could change if you chose to write that work report of a beach in Bali, instead of at your desk!
Drones are a revolutionary piece of tech that everyone needs to know about. They are remote controlled flying machines and can be used for many different purposes.
Obviously, there are military applications, and some folks even think that it could mean the end of the role of the traditional foot soldier. They also have a business and personal applications. Such as companies using them for deliveries and people making home videos.
However, it is important to know there is there some privacy issue around drones, as well as flight space ones. So always check what the rules are in your area before investing in these items which can be expensive.
Something else that has the potential to really revolutionize our lives is virtual reality or VR. The first headsets hit the market last year, and provide an immersive 3D experience, that is currently limited to visual feedback.
However, once physical feedback starts to be introduced the life-changing potential of this technology is limitless. You may end up using it to speak too long distance relative and give them a hug!
Or to have had life experiences that would not be possible in the real world. It even has the potential to provide a more sterile environment for surgery. As the doctors may use VR to control robots instead of doing the work manually.
