The OECD has identified the following as the most important developments in education moving forward:

  1. Online education's rising popularity

  2. Improving Employee-Employer Communication

It meant that more people would be able to afford higher education, and that students would have greater say over their professional futures.

Katie Grey argues that advances in AI will make education more engaging, more accessible, and more in demand in the future.

  1. Amazing, Modern Technology

  2. Adult education is becoming more important.

  3. The dedication to learning is becoming permanent (in a positive manner).

  4. Stronger Reactions.

  5. Helps for students.

  6. Cooperation between companies.
