Ed-tech sector in 2020:
In the previous year, the Ed-tech user base grew exponentially with the participation of all stakeholders, including students, teachers, and parents. In the era of social distancing, they ushered in virtual proximity to modernize school education. Contrary to the belief, Ed-techs do not dilute the role of teachers or any other aspect of education; instead, it builds a strong bond between the teachers and the students by making learning processes organic and simple.
Global research on e-learning further highlights that it improves the retention power while curtailing the overall time spent in learning a concept. With solitary access to knowledge, some students focus more on their own learning process and cut unnecessary competition of being the “first” to answer in the class. It allows kids to understand themselves and their keenness on any subject better, which enables them to make better higher education or career choices. It also promotes critical thinking among children.
Besides, Ed-tech organically allows students to make the right use of technology focused on self-learning and growth.
Education in the new normal will change dramatically as it did in the past year. By making the right choices in regard to ed-tech learning, schools can successfully modernize their education systems and do away with rote learning methodologies.
