Emerging practices in smart learning across diverse cultural communities: A global analysis

The ability to own and use smart technologies cuts across socioeconomic status boundaries, as these tools become a part of our everyday life survival tools. The practice of including emerging smart technologies in classrooms and corporate training has enabled students worldwide to learn from some of the best instructors, especially through Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and other such endeavours. As we progress through the second decade of the millennium, we see more major digital transformations such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Internet of Things (IoT) and big data analytics. These rapid changes, which are affecting the learning landscape, are enabling learners to become more engaged, innovative and empowered. The changes that are being implemented in today’s classrooms, based on technological developments, accord with the demands of learners. Today’s students are more prepared and more willing than previously for innovative teaching and learning to be part of their daily lifestyle. Recently, the demand for learning, from early childhood to tertiary levels, in the workplace and as a lifelong pursuit, has become much more personalized. Academia and industry are focusing on how to create innovative learning practices which will affect future skills development and capacity building.
