Education is one of the most promising segments in India but still we are lagging far behind globally, what needs to be done to improve education scenario?
The mindset needs to be changed at decision-making level. Indian brains are superior in the world, we have been only deprived off infrastructure and facilities. Given these basics in current scenario where technology is available we can be number one and competing in the world at any level.
We should have schemes and schools that provide good education to children living in villages. Also, it should be assured that good and experienced teachers are there to impart education to children.
“Education segment is growing segment in India. We will invest more on technology upgradation and will bring latest innovative products for education field for all level.”
Also, focus on teachers training, our country has already got many training programmes for teachers. Educating parents is equally important so that they do not force their children for careers which do not actually interest them. Implementing Smart Classes though many of the educational institutes are already following this concept, but we should take a step where all educational institutes can be connected with the concept of smart classes. With the help of different audio-video devices, multimedia concepts and other necessary IT elements, we can make our students learn and understand in a much better and modern way.
What do you think of the impact of technology on education? How technology can help in improving educational scenario in rural areas?
Technology has a very positive impact on education. Teachers and students should take advantage of this in good light and eliminate the drawbacks which are pulling back many of students as well as educational institutes from achieving. Students are able to learn on a global scale without ever leaving their classrooms. Technology can enhance literacy development, provide greater access to information, support learning, motivate students, and enhance their self-esteem.
The education system of today demands changes of meet the local and global needs. It is strongly felt that the kind of education a student receives must ensure to be an investment for the future. In a world increasingly dependent on technology whether it is at home or institution students and teachers must be fluent in technology. Digitisation in education has transformed the learning as well as teaching methodologies to a great extent.
We all know how helpful it is to remember something that is taught visually to us rather than the one that is read through pages. Just imagine, how beneficial would it be for students to understand a chapter visually in class. The concept of smart class education is indeed a blessing to the students of the 21st century.
