Agenda


Online learning is helping in educating the masses while achieving its 2 major goals of accessibility and affordability over traditional learning. There is a massive deficit of access to high-quality education & the cost of educating one of the world's greatest populations and how technology is helping by providing  education at every level more affordable by providing courses and content for free or at very reasonable costs.

 

The biggest beneficiaries of this easy access to academic learning and data have been students from Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities who no longer have to rely on institutes that are in the vicinity. With the advent of this digitization drive, education is no longer limited to the four walls of the classroom.

One of the biggest challenges in the education industry that stands out, is the need for good school infrastructure. School infrastructure should include services that make the learning process seamless.  The Classroom-based technologies have improved the classroom experience by introducing audio-visual material and multimedia content, which has led to increasing engagement. The classrooms are now livelier and more interactive.

 

There is a growing awareness among educators and families that today’s curriculum needs to evolve to meet tomorrow’s reality. Yet, in most schools’ teachers teaching the exact same subjects: reading, writing, math, science, history and foreign languages. Problem-solving, creative thinking, digital skills and collaboration are in greater need every year yet are not taught in our schools. Even when schools teach digital skills, they focus on how to use technology – how to create a document or a presentation – rather than how to create technology. Beyond tools and technology, students need to develop new skills to solve tough problems, collaborate effectively, and express ideas in new ways.

Bringing learners up to speed with the demands of the current industry trends became the goal for every educator, and how to achieve this became a burning issue. The increasing ease of accessibility of technology also gives students the ability to learn beyond what is taught in school. Thus, teachers have to always keep themselves a step ahead of their pupils making it imminent that schools hire and constantly train teachers to be ahead of the curve and provide more to students than just textbook knowledge. Using technology to train teachers can help us ensure that teachers have adopted the requisite skills required to impart right kind of education to the new generation of learners.

  • Importance of Upskilling and Reskilling
  • Accessibility of necessary platforms and Tools

The potential challenges across the K-12 education sector presently are engaging varied learners in the classroom, lack of personalization in education, administrative issues with teachers & principals and less involvement of parents. Technology solution providers that adapt to the groundbreaking technologies of the contemporary world can easily address these challenges while creating a new dimension across the education realm of K-12.

  • Evaluating Edtech for k12
  • Design an effective K12 technology

Entrepreneurship education seeks to provide students with the knowledge, skills and motivation to encourage entrepreneurial success in a variety of settings. Education plays an important factor in determining the entrepreneurial orientation in individuals. A conducive environment involving latest technological innovations would interest the students to pursue entrepreneurship and solve real-world problems. There are a few institutes which offer entrepreneurship education as a discipline, and there are some that offer it as a part of their wider syllabus. But the question remains whether these initiatives are enough to push entrepreneurship to a scale that India desires.

Besides imparting education, teachers in India’s education system are also responsible for various administrative tasks. Technology enables education institutions to smooth out their administrative responsibilities, which then enables them to focus on their core activity of teaching. Beyond bridging the traditional gaps in the education industry, technology has the power to help Indian education institutions to not only narrowing the educational gap with global peers but – if implemented well – leapfrog them to become leading global education providers.

  • What's ailing India's midday meal scheme: The scheme's focus has evolved. But a weak monitoring system threatens to cast a shadow on the programme.
  • Discussion on Fake degrees, identity thefts and other scams that government is unearthing at schools

Gamification of learning is an educational approach to motivate students to study by using video-game, design and game elements in learning environments. When learning becomes a taxing procedure, it hampers the quality of student’s attention and education. Learning is never a one-size-fits-all solution, which is why gamification of education is going to grow massively. Engagement with students is one of the major crux points of any classroom and games are one of the biggest engagement contributors.
