Brief: During the last few years, the world has witnessed many new advances in Science and Technology. Today’s children are not expected to do their learning by the same process through which we were taught; today the classrooms are more technology oriented. New approaches towards education have been taken.
The gravest challenge in Indian education system is that education in India is adult-centred. We are following a rather content-based, exam-oriented one sided model of teaching. We need a student-centred, skills-based, enquiryoriented personalised model of learning.
Technology is nothing but a tool. It delivers within the confines of the learning space, be it personalised learning or holistic learning. For maximum benefits, the entire school has to be space for personalised learning. You can’t just segregate one area as the space of personalised learning.
