Predictions for 2021: An Acceleration of 2020? – Ed Surge

Lest 2020 be forgot and never brought to mind—a hope more than a few of us hold—existing trends that accelerated during the pandemic will continue in 2021. That’s what lies ahead, at least in the realms of education and employment, according to three college presidents and executives at large companies. Their predictions revolve around the continued acceleration of the use of technology in education and work, an increased reliance on educational offerings that are lower cost and more convenient, and a further crumbling of the false dichotomy between short-term credentials and full degrees. Here’s how it breaks down: 1. Prepare for more people to work and learn remotely with technology. In response to layoffs and demand spikes, companies across every industry made updates to their technology and processes. That meant an acceleration of digitization and automation—efforts that longtime education industry watchers knew would happen, but which occurred faster than many anticipated. “Many Americans who lost their jobs during the pandemic can’t afford to go back to college, but they’ll still need to upskill and become marketable in the workforce,” Wilmington University President LaVerne Harmon said.
