In the next few days, we’ll be releasing our report on ed-tech in APS in India. The report discusses barriers to implementation and gaps and opportunities for education technology in India’s low-income schools.
Yesterday, The Hindu published an article by Sitaram Venkat about ten education technology trends that India’s schools should be aware of. The article identified trends such as better content creation, personal learning, and the role of teachers, which we also discuss in our report.
“The creation of an interactive experience for students is imperative. Similarly the new-generation teacher must be technologically enabled to meet the demands of the student. Establishing technology as an enabler instead of a disruptive force will create a teacher-led pull for technology adoption. Additionally, uniform access to world-class content is essential. The opportunity is available now to build such an ecosystem.”
Here are the 10 trends he mentions:
1. Personal Computing
2. Better Content Creation
3. Anytime, Anywhere
4. Learning Made Personal
5. Cloud Computing
7. Teacher Generated Content
8. Smart Portfolio Assessment
9. Teacher’s Role
10. Learning Spaces
