VR has a significant impact on educational processes: only through this technology can students safely and in detail, see what they are learning, from the decay of atoms to extinct organisms. According to analysts at ABI Research, by 2022, the global market for VR-learning will grow to a total of $6.3 billion. As early as the end of 2018, virtual technology has been implemented in 18% of U.S. curricula. Let's take a look at how VR is used to enhance educational processes.

The message is stark, urgent and global; the progress of the coronavirus pandemic can only be slowed to manageable levels if we all practice social distancing and self-isolation.
We all have daunting challenges to face in a world of restricted travel, remote working, and limited social interaction. Even after the initial crisis measures have been relaxed, it won’t be ‘business as normal’ for some time to come.
So exactly how can we continue providing essential training and education? How can we meet together at trade and cultural events? How can we nurture personal contacts and convert them to sales?
One way is to use the technology already out there to bring people together in a virtual reality. A virus ca nnot spread when there is no actual physical contact.
Let’s take a look now at how VR can not only give you a socially responsible advantage during the height of the crisis, but will give you a competitive edge in its aftermath.
Coding is becoming one of the biggest trends to hit education since virtual reality. Because of this, parents and schools all over the globe are interested in teaching children to code. While teaching children to code may not turn them into a billionaire like Mark Zuckerberg, it certainly comes with a lot of benefits. Many of the advantages that I speak of are unknown to general public.
So instead of watching people jump on the coding bandwagon because we said so, we decided to write an article that discusses the benefits of learning how to code as a child. That way parents and schools can make an informed decision. Believe it or not, some of the advantages that we are about to share may shock you. Well, without further ado, here is our list of the benefits of learning to code as a child.

The future of education is deeply linked with the development of new artificial intelligence technologies and computing. Even while the debate is still ongoing as to what extent AI will replace teachers' presence. AI in the U.S. Education keeps growing at a reasonable rate. It is projected to go as high as 47.5% by 2021.
It’s always a challenge for many teachers and school administrators to maintain or level up parent engagement in schools. They don’t like attending meetings and school-related activities because they believe they’re not that important. They could always keep themselves up to date by asking their children or fellow parents. However, this shouldn’t be the case because whether they like it or not, it is their responsibility to provide quality education to their children, including having a good relationship with teachers, school principals, and others.
Now, what can schools do to enhance parent engagement? How can they encourage parents to be more active in their children’s lives in school? For many years now, schools have been using Edtech as a way of improving teaching and learning. It’s about time they use Edtech as well to strengthen the participation of parents in schools.
Here are some great ideas for boosting parent engagement through Edtech:
