Information and Communication Technology has permeated in every walk of life affecting the technology fields such as launching satellites, managing businesses across the globe and also enabling social networking. The 21st century is characterized by the emergence of knowledge based society wherein ICT plays a pivotal role. (ICT) in schools has led to a major transformation of the educational landscape.
I remember a time when students and teachers had to make many trips to the library and find the right books for their homework and lesson plans. Now, with various Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in the classroom and the computer lab, relevant information is just a click away. Technology has radically modified the way teachers teach and students learn. There is excitement among teachers and students alike to learn computer skills and be techno savvy.
ICT provides a platform for innovation
ICT, when used effectively, can provide a platform for innovation in the academic process and bridge the gap caused due to various reasons. At TRIZ k12 platform, we understand that a good ICT solution is based on established learning approaches; it incorporates the perspectives of end users and is organically integrated into the school environment.
Future with endless possibilities
The future of ICT in education is filled with endless possibilities. Comprehensive education and IT policies like CBSE’s recent decision to make digital classrooms compulsory, greater focus on integrating ICT as a field of study into the curriculum, using it as a teaching aid, and entry of many private players in this sector will lead to overall improvement in the quality of education and development of the ICT industry.
Education is going to be more interactive, as the dream that of a owning a tablet which was once viewed as a corporate tool by school children has come to an end. The government, book publishers and the technology industry are considering a large-scale effort to push the tablets into schools to transform education through technology.
The tablet a portable medium that can access and store information, images, music, video games and other apps for various needs, with a battery life that could last all day. Putting educational materials into digital form is something new.
Empowering students learn through tablet is seen as a way to address the growing awareness and demand for preparing students to effectively participate in the emerging global knowledge economy. It is believed that, in order to maintain competitiveness in a global economy, traditional classroom practices must be re-conceptualized in a way that enables students to engage themselves in knowledge building, to become more self-directed, and to assume greater autonomy and social responsibility over their own learning.
The role of gadgets in education is often contested and debated, but tablet seems to offer more to educators than any other technology did in the past. With a single investment, schools will be able to provide updated information to students and also make learning more enjoyable for students.
“I like the tablet because, the weight, size and cost.Tablets are much easier to care for, weightless and can be put in a small backpack or in its own carrier. Battery life can be short but for the amount of good it provides I’ll stick with it. The cost is far less than some laptops or pc.
