TECHNOLOGIES & EDUCATION


For a period almost greater than a century, education has remained undeveloped; in most of the classrooms, traditional rules of teaching are still prevalent. THE DIRECTORATE OF TECHNICAL EDUCATION has committed itself to work towards "Infusing contemporary techniques and current trends by introducing new courses in the current syllabuses of educational institutions in the field of technology."




THE TECHNOLOGICAL AGE

The 21st century is often called the Technological Age. Technology plays an extremely important role in our lives today. It can be seen as the cornerstone of the nation's economic progress. In today's scenario, an economy that is weak in the sector of technology can never progress. This is because technology makes our work much easier within a short span of time. Its impact can be felt in every possible area and aspect of our lives, education is one such area.



THE IMPACT OF TECHNOLOGY ON EDUCATION

India's education system has brought revolutionary changes in the last decade, this revolution has been possible not only due to the recruitment of well-trained teachers, better curriculum, better school campuses, but also due to the introduction of ample new technologies. In schools, the computer knowledge that children acquire reinforces the fact that it will open up brighter opportunities for them in the future, even though they do not use computers in the subject of their interest. In order to progress ahead, schools today have brought technology into classrooms with the use of iPads, which can make education more effective and impactful. However, in order to increase the impact of technology in classrooms, many essential steps must be taken.



CURRENT AND FUTURE TRENDS

Communication is the key to grab the attention of a child. Thus, efforts should be made to introduce features such as interactive white boards in place of textbooks, 2D and 3D display using video and animation, as this will generate inquisitiveness in children and make them more interested to learn more. Apart from this, the internet should be made compulsory in India's schools and colleges for all students as it is a medium that allows you to learn new things anywhere in the world at any time during the day. During the old days of distance education, teachers would have to wait for students to submit their homework the next day. Rather, if both parties equipped with an Internet connection, all the homework, assignments, projects, and copy can be shared between them at any time during the day. Technology not only helps to establish better communication but also enables knowledge acquisition with one tap of the finger. It makes the process of learning interesting things and gaining knowledge of concepts much easier. Thus, it is clear that the Indian education system lacks one thing - The Government is not playing its vital role in bringing the boon of technology to schools and higher educational institutions. This is the reason why most of the Indian families are not convinced to get educated in private schools. Children from such families find it very difficult to get job security because their knowledge about technological advancement is quite limited. Ultimately, it is education which makes one understand the difference between one country and another. Again, it is education that leads to the birth of a true global citizen. It is like a world where the boundaries are breaking, where education can be classified from bad to worse and good to great! It is now time for India to welcome a more technically advanced future in the area of education.

In the past few decades, the role of technology in education has increased rapidly, though lots of difficulties have been encountered in the process of technology making its impact on education. Many institutions have disapproved of uncertified technologies that can be expensive. Thus, new systems are being developed every dalwaye which are more economical and capable of delivering an enriching educational experience,a which is otherwise possible.
