Over the years, technology has been travelling at an enormous speed and the world has witnessed a string of technological innovations in all sectors. So, the industry of learning couldn’t be left out. The industry has changed its face through adoption of technological solutions for streamlining teaching-learning experiences. The sector has also paved way to rapid expansion in the number of education e-solution providers in the country. From campus management solutions, to K12 education technology providers, to cutting edge education products – there seems to be no dearth of solution providers in the market.
Learning with technology has become essential in today’s schools. Worldwide, governments, education systems, researchers, school leaders, teachers and parents consider technology to be a critical part of a child’s education. Developing students’ knowledge and skills related to ICT in the school years provides an important grounding for later in life. It also provides equity of opportunity, regardless of background.
The huge expansion of IT enabled learning in India also necessitates a guide, which can help academicians to be informed and also choose from the various solutions available. The digitalLEARNING Resource Guide, since past years, has been playing an instrumental role in helping academicians and education stakeholders in choosing e- services and infrastructure to suit their requirements. With the influx of new technology and increased connectivity, a focused strategic planning is important to ensure digital learning opportunities for all students and educators. Most school districts have made investments in technology equipment, bandwidth and networking, training teachers and are supporting both the technology and those using it.
The year 2015 brought Elets Technomedia Pvt Ltd and digitalLEARNING, a platform to engage stakeholders and players of the industry under one ambit during the World Education Summit, held in August. The event was a perfect blend of innovators coming and exhibiting their products and showcasing and synergising learning to a new level. It also encouraged a large number of private players to come up with new solutions and to productively utilise their existing technology services for educational concerns.
Taking forward our previous year’s success and tremendous demand in the market, we bring to you a new and improved digitalLEARNING Resource Guide 2015 for better insights and to enable the consumers make an informed decision. Campus and school technologies are becoming more and more viable and consumer friendly and our objective with this Resource Guide is to present consumers a clear understanding on the education technology solutions. The issue not only highlights existing technologies, but also informs them about the latest development and innovations on offer.
