Harnessing the unremitting advancements of technology and digital modules, the education sector has been quick to adapt to the ever-changing ecosystem of adaptive learning. The changes have enhanced the process and prompted students, teachers and parents to go beyond and make an environment that fosters upskilling, supports knowledge amalgamation, encourages interdisciplinary education and bring reforms that make all the stakeholders future-ready. While smart classes, flip classes, and digital learning are being explored extensively – the need to improvise methodologies and provide multimedia teaching tools at a large scale is challenging and troublesome. However, educators are coming forward with innovative tools and ways to lead the wheels of change.

Despite the initial hiccups and paucity of adequate infrastructure and training – learners and educators turned the challenges into opportunities. They charted fresh avenues to impart knowledge, access information, and attain increased participation, ensure engagement of the students and promote productivity.

Through exploring the varied offerings of the digital platforms, fostering remedial and remote classes, workshops, live sessions, and seminars; schools have ensured there is no dearth of knowledge and exposure to the new world of learning and opportunities.

Technology led e-learning

The school curriculum and learning process in academic is poised to go through an incredible transformational ride. Digital education has introduced educators to a wide variety of tools to enhance and make the teaching process more effective. Google Classroom, ZohoClasses, Zoom for Education, TalentLMS amongst others has helped teachers mitigate through the transition seamlessly. Digitalization also allows them to provide and receive immediate feedback and information to children in remote areas.

While online classes have its limitations up to a certain extent, it has given teachers a chance to learn something new. Many of them have enrolled for courses to learn about the effective online tools for teaching and how well they can use it. They are now forced to think out of the box to come up on the best way possible to educate and empower the children of tomorrow. While it is at a nascent stage, it is mushrooming with myriad opportunities and limitless possibilities.
