Education has been essential to human progress since ancient times. This empowers a person to progress in his/her life and career. Even the simple act of learning the basic alphabet and numbers empowers a person to confidently communicate and conduct dealings with others.
Education is decreed by law to be a fundamental right. This is irrespective of any distinctions in people, including caste, gender, age, etc. Subsequently, this has shown tremendous results in the number of children and adults getting educated and taking up careers of their choice.
This number has ever kept increasing thanks to the evolving application of technology. The application of technology in imparting education was seen most prominently during the COVID-19 period. One couldn’t have imagined using technology at such a massive scale to conduct school classes, tuition, and even bachelor’s and master’s level degree programs earlier. Yes, maybe at the elite educational institutions in the west. New technologies have made it affordable to upscale the reach of knowledge within hours or just minutes. One such example is that of Ed-tech platforms which have made learning very interesting.
10 reasons to adopt technology in education:
- Learning with an element of fun.
- Supports different types of learning and learners. There are different methods of teaching and students with different learning needs. Technology helps fill the gap.
- Preparing students to face the modern workforce. It arms students with various tools, like blogs, videos, etc., to prepare them for their future.
- Giving students a picture of real-world things. Students know about things they haven’t seen or heard before.
- Encourages students to connect and work together on common goals, projects, etc.
- Trains students to become responsible citizens in the virtual world too.
- Teaches and trains students to find the right information easily.
- Technology helps students expand their scope of learning. With or without assistance, students can research extra information online on the subject they are learning or intend to learn.
