Digitisation in education is trending. Many schools are turning towards teaching methods that use the concept of visuals, videos and diagrams to make the lessons more interesting. By using a combination of traditional training with digitisation, one can ensure that future generations become global contributors who can connect across culture, time and geographies, says MANAS KAPOOR
The growth of Information Technology and its introduction in every sector has had a significant impact. With the induction of IT in education, it has completely changed the teaching and learning process. It has induced a lot of ease and has made the entire process stress-free both for students and teachers. Schools are gradually implementing digital teaching solutions to make the learning atmosphere more advanced and participatory.
Even coaching and consulting institutes have adopted the digitised form of education and designed it in ways where a student gets day-wise study plans. They follow the concept that visual understanding is long lasting so the video lectures are enriched with diagrams.
These institutes also have Adaptive Learning System. It is the concept of artificial intelligence under which the gravity of questions changes according to the students’ calibre. Hard questions are given with higher understanding of topics and easy questions are given to the students who have lower understanding. The level of questions increases according to the understanding of the student. Such technology provides end to end solutions to the students including assignments, test series and doubt clearance sessions as a whole.
The information and communication technology in the educational sector has enhanced the understanding capacity of the students. They are conceivably the most open to external teaching and are more receptive when they are in the classroom. Modern-day students live in a world which is constantly connected and therefore the traditional methods of education might not be the apt method to adopt anymore. The evolution of the education system shall only be achieved with its digitisation so that the students can learn at their own speed within or outside the classroom.
