In recent years, India has witnessed a significant shift in the education sector with the advent of edtech solutions. The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated this shift, and schools are now increasingly adopting Digital learning and AI-Based Learning tools.
The students have shifted from orthodox educational system to more experience based education which compelled the institutions to accelerate their classes. Technology can also enhance classroom engagement and collaboration, making learning more interactive and fun. Also, there are more than 250 million school-going children in India, more than in any other country in the world!
India is the second-largest e-learning market followed by the US. By 2020, the Indian e-learning market is projected to grow to US$ 1.96 billion with 9.5 million users, which makes it ideal for a booming technology business.
India’s traditional system, across all Boards and states, has been intertwined with rote learning. In fact, over ages and time, irrespective of what scope of education is in question or what the future education system in India comes to be, there has hardly been a huge leap that any portion of the educational syllabus has taken.
With changing educational policy and reformations there has been a drastic change in the country's education system. Some suggestions can be:
Personalising learning for each student’s strengths, needs, talents, and interests is yet another straightforward yet very successful and novel approach to the learning process. This aids in creating a learning plan specifically for the learner.
Giving students a sustainable and high-quality education in the future will be made possible by a mix of teachers’ involvement and AI.
Drive in a way that assures entrepreneurial success while also making the student more employable in the future workforce.
EdTech will play a vital role in society and serve as a solid pillar for the next generation despite the huge shift brought about by technology and new policy reforms like the NEP.
The future will speak for itself if the country where Aryabhatta and Nalanda was built and Destroyed was born will have a bright future for education or not.
