Gen Zeducation Educational tools for the web savvy generations, from elementary to university Implications - Computers and technology are being integrated in courses for students from kindergarten to university, and their evolution must be on par with the development of the students. Progressive institutes understand that their level of new tech integration directly correlates with the success of their students.

Gender-Neutral On the way to becoming a more “genderless” society Implications - Androgynous clothing created waves in the fashion industry last year, countering conventional ideals of what constitutes men’s and women’s fashion. This year, the gender-bending aesthetic continues, with more designers entering the “genderless” territory with makeup and jewelry made for both men and women. What is more intriguing, however, is that even schools are beginning to implement gender-neutral teachings, educating children at a young age to be less concerned with traditional masculine and feminine stereotypes and more concerned with individuality.

More and more students are doing their parts and contributing to the cause, and schools everywhere are being built with the environment in mind. Thus, a merge has begun between eco-minded businesses, green organizations and educational institutions alike.

Educatecture Learning facilities promote creativity by getting innovative with architecture Implications - With people leaning towards fulfilling personal rather than professional achievements, a value has been placed on the happiness and wellness of individuals.

Social Media Academics Networking tools make learning an integrated experience Implications - Going beyond today’s teaching tech is social media aimed at the classroom. From virtual internships to Twitter scholarships, social media tools and sites applied to education appeal to the modern day student—and teacher—who requires more than just a textbook or computer. This person is used to a constant stream of information, especially from peers, and as such, demands more integrated and interactive academic tools.

Techademics Once a source of student distraction, gadgets now act as digital learning tools Implications - Technology is often blamed for shortening the attention spans of students and distracting them from their studies. More gadgets, however, are crossing the line between attention-diverting nuisances and education-enhancing tools. Perfect for today’s digital-savvy students, these tech learning devices not only improve the learning experience, but also make it a more engaging one.

Eco Schooling Green practices and innovation become a large part of today's schooling Implications - An emphasis on eco-friendly learning is pushing tomorrow’s graduates to make the green lifestyle choices which our generation may have ignored.

Smart Scrawling Note-taking across platforms has never been easier with these hi-tech devices Implications - Not even a decade ago, our first choice for jotting down notes was a physical notepad or notebook. With our growing dependency on computers and mobile phones today, however, digital notes are quickly overtaking handwritten notes, with engineers and designers introducing devices with the primary function of merging offline and online note-taking platforms. These gadgets make the act of recording astoundingly more convenient, effectively turning your scrawls into easily accessible digital files, and have potential applications for work, education, design and more.

Building Benevolence Youth entrepreneurship training focuses on social change Implications - Social organizations are recognizing that to spread a message concerning social change, it's a good idea to start young. Not only do young consumers provide a springboard for making a message go viral, as we've seen in intense social media campaigns like Kony 2012, they possess the dedication and courage to develop and implement projects that tackle the social issues they believe in. Thus, the number of social business education programs for youth are on the rise, promoting social entrepreneurship among aspiring young business owners and building a foundation of social purpose in our future leaders.

Visualized Education Infographics provide data in a design-conscious way Implications - The age of instant gratification calls for all information to be presented in an attractive way. This concept is taken to new heights with design-conscious data visualization circulating online. This caters to consumers' need for extra stimulation while also acknowledging a more visual-based learning style, opening doors for consumers to receive information faster and more effectively.

Atypical Training Education explores unprecedented teaching methods & subjects Implications - Education is straying from the norm as some institutions recognize the importance of particular skills and knowledge not usually taught in traditional school programs and classroom settings. These atypical training grounds, methods and courses range from crisis preparation to celebrity studies, showing that education shouldn’t just be about sticking to the tried and true (math, science, geography and the like), but about exploring new boundaries and ensuring subjects are relevant in today’s world.

Snap Discourse More language-learning tools means less lost-in-translation moments Implications - With the rise of the Internet and other innovations in global connectivity, we are steadily becoming a more ubiquitous world. Aiding in this ubiquity are language-learning and translation tools that help people overcome language barriers both on- and offline. Learning a new dialect is easier than ever, and for those who don't want to learn, there are real-time translators that can be used on-the-go. What's more, an increasing number of brands are willing to include multi-language platforms in their wares, a strategy that allows for greater market capture and heightened brand loyalty.
