How Technology has Revamped the Education Sector?

 Yes, Technology has touched our lives in almost all arenas, right from transportation, medical sciences, infrastructure and everywhere. But whenever we talk about technology aiding the education sector, there arises a doubt, specially among teachers and parents that, “Use of tech in education won’t be of much use.”


This cliche is now about to shatter as Technology has proved its usefulness to the kids. With the help of tech, heavy weight books have been compressed into e-books, which are much easier and lighter to carry. Online exams have saved paper-wastage and made the exam evaluation much easier. Leaning form a 3D animated videos have made learning a fun experience rather than a burdensome process for a kid. Not only this, it is proven fact that for a longer retention, visual mediums are more effective than others.

Lets see what are the various ways technology has enhanced the experience of learning.
Being attentive in a classroom and listening to what a teacher is explaining is an effective way to understand and grasp a topic, but is a usual tendency of kids to be unattentive and daydream in the class. Whereas they wait eagerly to watch their favourite cartoon program. This is where the concept of learning with a visual medium came into scene.

Adaptive Learning is a concept which evaluates a student’s intelligence and skills. The understanding capability of a particular topic or chapter in measured by the amount of time s/he is taking to answer it’s practice question. This evaluation on a regular basis improves one’s learning & understanding of a topic and increases speed as well.

When a student is well understood (through a visual medium of course), about a chapter or any concept, then they tend to develop a self confidence among themselves, which makes them a better person, an influential speaker and boosts their self-esteem. They interact with other students in the class and teachers confidently. This learning also develops a capability to generate query or doubt regarding various subjects.

All major competitive exams like JEE and NEET, are conducted online, which means, a student needs to be familiar with technology and gadgets like computer, tablet or a smartphone. Hence, introducing them with tech at an early stage builds their confidence in handling such products.
"If we teach today as we taught yesterday, we rob our children of tomorrow." John Dewey

Yes, as a parent, you need to understand the fact that the true meaning of education is not about filling a pail of bucket but igniting a fire within them. The fire to gain more knowledge, by experimenting and experiencing new encounters every day.
