By now we are ALL aware of how Digital Marketing has taken the world by storm. We really don’t think about it because it was a process that happened so gradually. One minute we were flipping through the Fall Preview Guide of the TV Guide to see all of the next seasons shows and the next thing we know, we are viewing that edition ONLINE.
I was recently having a discussing about things and I mentioned to the person about the changes that have occured and how quickly. They gave me a puzzled look until I used the TV Guide Analogy. We have really quite literally been taken over by Digital Media. We use mobile phones for conversations, taking pictures, interacting with people and occasionally even talking on it. :-P Although I prefer traditional paper books, the sales of traditionally books have been on a steady decline due to the increasing popularity of book readers like Nook, Kindle and iPad. We have come a long way baby!
There will be NO industry left untouched by this historical growth of technology. One of the industries that I would love to be enveloped, altered and changed for the better by this amazing Digital Technology boom is Education! I just had a conversation that started with politics and ended with education that detailed how education needs to be pulled from the manufacturing era into the technology era. Well, due to the growth of this technology era, I believe it’s a possibility and I would LOVE to see how things could evolve.
Take a look at the infographic below that displays how education could benefit from a strong boost of the digital era.
