The debate about what role 5G will play in different sectors is on the table, so we asked ourselves: how will 5G technology improve education?
5G refers to the fifth generation of mobile telephony technologies. It is the successor to 4G, the technology that provides connectivity to most of the devices we use today. The main characteristic of the transition from 4G to 5G will be speed. But what effects will this have on the education sector?
- Remote classes and hybrid models: faster connectivity will make remote processes more efficient. This will have a special effect in rural areas where 4G technology is still slow.
- Virtual and augmented reality: so far, existing technology has allowed some programs and pilots with virtual and augmented reality projects. The new connectivity will have the necessary speed and for content designed with these technologies.
- Personalized learning: figures such as virtual assistants will be part of an environment increasingly focused on understanding the needs of each student and creating specific learning paths for them.
- Changing the role of the teacher: 5G will increase the integrations of the so-called internet of things. This can improve the daily experience in the centers and the way teachers operate, reducing administrative work and allowing them to focus more time on the students.
