A quarter of this year has already passed, yet things don’t seem to get back on track. Students are trying to keep the momentum going with a mix of online classes and offline classes. The good news, however, is that conventional classrooms are witnessing a lot of positive changes thanks to EdTech. But will EdTech continue to stick around in the post pandemic world or is it just another flash in the plan?
I would say that EdTech will continue to stay relevant and help enhance the learning experience of all students in the near future.
How EdTech is driving the change?
Let’s discuss the same through some value points:
- Bringing Innovation to Classrooms:
EdTechs are developing innovative and creative models of learning. For example, BYJU’S The Learning App, is delivering world‑class learning content through movie‑like videos and game-like interactions. It helps students learn in an interesting and engaging way.
- Developing an All New Learning Infrastructure:
EdTechs are bringing a change in the infrastructure of conventional education system. Big data analysis techniques are used to understand the most effective and efficient ways for learners to progress. Consequently, it can lead to efficient education system, reduced education cost, assure new levels of standardization and improve access to education.
- Creating a Flexible Model: EdTech tools help create a flexible and sustainable model of education for the future.
Disney • BYJU’S Early Learning App: It provides an immersive learning experience for children in Kindergarten to Grade 3, this app amalgamates content expertise of BYJU’S with Disney’s engaging stories and beloved characters. The app teaches complex subjects like math and science in a story-like manner using Disney’s iconic characters and by providing real-life examples. The app can also be integrated BYJU’S (Osmo) state of art digital worksheets, puzzles and more, which create hands‑on learning experiences.
BYJU’S – Parent Connect App: This brilliantly designed app helps parents get more involved in their child’s education by providing them real‑time updates on the child’s progress and performance. It also keeps track of the screen-time, and highlights subjects that need more attention. It allows parents to be a part of the process from home and/or on-the-go.
Learning tools such as these could develop hybrid models of learning that combine the best of online and offline education. Teachers can evolve into something more than just knowledge vessels, they can transform into mentors and mundane tasks can be removed by automation.
There is absolutely no doubt in saying that EdTech will stick and will help to create a holistic learning experience for students in the post-pandemic era. What do you think? Let me know in the comment section below.
