EdTech Is Transforming Events Professionals’ Careers From the Ground Up
It goes without saying that over the years, the international education industry has been through quite a revolutionary transformation. In fact, the education industry is one of the most enduring and yet highly adaptable industries in the world. This has always been the case and it likely always will be. Over the years, the education industry has been one of the only constantly performing industries and for that reason it has been given a tremendous amount of support and growth throughout the years. Even (and especially) now, we are seeing more rising interest and investment in the education industry than ever before.
All this rising interest comes at a time where the very world around us is evolving, getting bolder and smarter all the time. The world around us is a very different place from the world that existed years ago and more to the point, it is a world that is getting stronger, better, brighter ,and more digitally capable than ever. Practically every aspect of life as we know it has been revolutionized in the weight of technological advancement and rapid digitalization – including of course the occasion industry.
Introducing technological advancement into education
The rise of EdTech (education technology) has well and truly kicked into high gear. The result of this is that education today is more technologically influenced then it has ever been, and it continues to become more and more so all time. This is an entirely different landscape than it used to be, and it is only getting better all the time. When EdTech was first introduced to the education industry, there were individuals who had their doubts. Now, EdTech has more than proven them wrong time and again. It likely will continue to do so in the foreseeable future (and even beyond).
The impact of EdTech on the events industry
Today, online education is a more prominent force than it has ever been. Interestingly, it is also a force that seems to just keep growing, essentially and successfully going from strength to strength all the time. Think of the impact of EdTech on the events industry, for instance. This is a field that, like it or not, has been exponentially influenced by the implementation of online education. How? Event planners and managers can effectively work on furthering their professional qualifications while still getting real-time experience in their field, furthering their careers in the process of gaining more qualifications for said career. Additionally, online education has introduced countless online courses surrounding event planning and management, each of which has proven to be valuable in its own right.
The future of the events industry in light of this
The average events company today definitely works with EdTech to a certain point, and the simple fact is that this is a truth that is becoming truer all the time. The future of the events industry has never looked brighter, and that is largely because the vast open expanses of EdTech – and specifically online learning – have created an entirely new frontier in the events industry that encourages and embodies the ideal of consistent learning both in the field and through updated courses.
