Technology face crisis in education system

In this modern age where technology is given priority to help and solve students , it is found that India’s education system is in a crisis and its due to technology. Parents now blame technology for it or the system the education module process in India.

What so ever might be the case, the Annual Status of Education Report (ASER) of 2014 states that more than 70 percent students of class 5 cannot solve class 3 mathematics. Alongside low student learning levels such as these, India also faces a shortage of 1.4 million teachers — meaning many children face even more difficult access to quality instruction.

Educational technology (EdTech) allows students to study at their own pace, which means that gaps in learning are addressed quickly and easily. Self-learning models enable anywhere, anytime learning by reaching directly to students.

Second, the power of technology can also connect students to high-quality resources, regardless of their location. Personalised learning using adaptive tools and allowing teachers to differentiate instruction to meet varying student interests is the best way to think of the classroom of the future.

Third, EdTech can help to promote higher order skills, such as critical thinking, problem solving and creativity by encouraging students to participate in project-based work and allowing teachers the time to engage actively with students in such areas.

With the Internet and mobile infrastructure becoming widely available, the government pushing for the adoption of digital technology, and entrepreneurs and funders collaborating to create innovative solutions, there is tremendous potential for technology to continue to improve the quality of education and student learning levels in India. This is a special time in history when we actually have a chance to help all our students have access to world-class education.
