  • Technology has fundamentally redefined lives for us, penetrating each facet of our existence including education. Over the last few years, the growing technological footprint in education has not only enabled an easy exchange of ideas and information but also expanded access to resources and revolutionized the way students learn. With a growing dependency on ed-tech platforms that facilitate round the clock engagement and learning assistance, education in India is no longer confined to classrooms.

    The pandemic has further demonstrated the need for tech based solutions causing a paradigm shift in India’s K-12 education system. Modern technology has made it easier for educators to facilitate transfer of knowledge and ensure quality learning, thereby enabling the students to have a more personalized and engaging experience. Today, more and more Indian students are waking up to innovative pedagogical methods in schools coupled with access to a plethora of online educational resources from the comfort of their homes.

    On the Brainly education app, numerous solutions to such study problems are provided daily to students, parents, and teachers, allowing for instant doubt-solving, and supporting pupils in their learning. Brainly’s Knowledge Base has approximately 48 million answers across Math, Science, English, Social Studies, Hindi, Technology, Arts, Music, and other subjects in India alone.

    Every month, 5.5 crore Indians use Brainly to resolve their educational queries. Doubt resolution is an important part of the learning process because each student has a unique question or concern. Brainly’s Snap to Solve feature instantly takes one to the best solution, be it Community Q & A, Textbook Solutions, Teacher, or AI-powered Math Solver.

    Traditional schooling in India has always been defined by a one-size-fits-all technique, which often led to extreme pressure, shorter attention spans and gaps in learning. Not every student learns at the same pace nor do they have similar interests and skills. By integrating technology into the existing curriculum and making learning a more personalized experience via apps and platforms, digital intervention has significantly bridged this gap in the recent past.

    However, quality learning benefits from cooperation. It’s no secret that peer-to-peer learning facilitates a deeper grasp of subjects and helps students obtain a fresh perspective. By erasing geographical limitations, online education has paved the way for student collaborations and boosted engagement. On the Brainly platform, users can post questions and have them swiftly addressed by a community of other students, parents or teachers. Students receive a badge for answering questions, which helps them gain confidence and stay motivated.

    There’s no denying that today’s generation of students are more privileged to have access to multiple online resources, which their parents or previous generations were bereft of. Modern technology has increased the interest in learning and reshaped the entire ecosystem by many folds. Here’s a rundown on some technological advancements that have empowered our classrooms digitally, making education available to everyone who wants to learn, beyond languages and geographies.

    AR/VR – Artificial intelligence and Virtual Reality has made education a much more immersive experience. Around the world, AI has made significant progress across diverse academic services such as automated admissions, learning, tutoring, examinations, and assessments. Moving ahead, both these tools will continue to curate a further simulated environment for real-time learning.

    Virtual classrooms – Availability of high-quality education has never been greater! Virtual classrooms have enabled students across backgrounds and social strata to access high-quality education right from the comfort of their homes.

    Podcasts– Podcasting is a valuable resource that teachers can use to help students learn and teach a language. It is a different way of learning that can help you improve your listening skills. Many podcast producers are educators who use this technology to communicate with their students outside of the traditional classroom setting.

    Gamification – Gamification, as a tool is also gaining prominence in digital learning. Integrating a learning situation with a game, stirs curiosity and boosts engagement among students, motivating  them to focus more. Not to forget, its potential to turn something monotonous into an engaging affair.

    In India, there can’t be a more opportune moment to witness the impact of technology in education. Not only has it made learning affordable and engaging, but has widened its potential to pupils beyond metros, who were deprived of quality education before. With the online education industry set to grow by 11.6 billion, India is the second largest market for digital learning after the US. Around 36% of India is young and learning today which offers a stupendous opportunity for the ed tech sector to tap into. The pandemic has caused a definitive shift towards online education and the trend from here is only set to strengthen further.
