How Digital Education is Transforming Indian Education
Education in the 21st century has undergone a major transformation since the advent of technology in the classroom. Today’s students benefit greatly from the ease of access to information, efficiency and more opportunities.
But how exactly has technology transformed classrooms? Listed below are a few points that describe the role played by digitalisation in transforming the learning system.
Digital classrooms: Classrooms are no longer restricted to textbooks, blackboard and chalk. Digital learning facilitated through smart classrooms is fast becoming a part of the Indian education system.
Distance education made easy: Remote classrooms and digital learning are a boon for students who cannot come to school because of distance, illness and other such reasons. Online schools and even robots are coming up to assist those who are in quest for education but may not be able to physically attend a school or college.
Flexible learning environment: Students need not keep their queries to classrooms anymore. Computer modules and apps are there to clear doubts and provide an individual learning experience.
Online webinars: Digitalisation has made it possible for schools to conduct online webinars, enabling students to engage in vital lectures and communicate with people across the world and even outer space. The NASA program that allows students to interact with astronauts in space is one such example.
Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality-based learning: The advent of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality in e-learning has greatly improved the efficiency with which knowledge is imparted to students. Students using e-learning platforms can directly interact with the study materials using VR ensuring that the engagement levels remain high.
Greater exposure: The Internet has made it possible for students from across the world to communicate and exchange information. They are thus exposed to a variety of cultures and languages while sitting in their classroom or home.
India is fast becoming a top destination for education and with the right pedagogy and technology, we can make our classrooms much more interactive, engaging and fun.
