With COVID-19 onset, the integration of technology is necessary and inevitable in today’s classrooms. The digital transformation of education has been heralded as a vehicle of change; a great equalising force with the potential to drive social reform. Given this emphasis on technology in recent years, and the value it has been accorded as almost a silver bullet for improving education, it is unsurprising that India has adopted a nation-wide policy for the integration of technology in schools. Its purpose is to bridge the digital divide amongst students of various socioeconomic and other geographical barriers. For technology integration in education to have a real impact on learning outcomes, and for this digital transformation to effectively enhance the learning experience of students, the role of the teacher is pivotal.
Emphasizing on the role of teachers in the digital era, digitalLEARNING Magazine in association with Dr. C. V. Raman University, Bilaspur, Chhattisgarh will be organising virtual “School Leadership Summit, Chhattisgarh” on 21st August 2020.
