Innovation and Technology are the two words that have been defining the 21st century. When Charles Babbage invented the computer in 1832 nobody knew that it will write a new Age for the world “Computer Age”. But today nothing in this world can work without technology. There was a time when people stand at long queues to make an STD call. Then who knew that they will be face timing on a 4g network. During lockdown due to Coved-19 pandemic the digital education is giving a big relaxation to students to continue studies through digital plantform, even Bihar board 10th result is also going to be announce digitally.
If we go by history then the first innovative tool that entered the classroom was the projector. It was used in those institutions where a lot of pictorial representation or diagrams were used. But today we have switched to Digital classes, video classes by teachers thanks to Coronavirus. In this article, I will try to assess the important benefits that have made Online Education an important part of Indian education.
Study/Teach at your comfort
Although technology has a plethora of benefits to offer to students or teachers. But the most important reward it has given is Online Education or digital learning. Growing online classes has let the students study in the comforts of their house. The classes are taking up by reputed teachers on various e-platforms in the form of video classes. Take for example earlier a student preparing for govt exam has to roam attend coaching that drains his time and energy. But with Online Education, he can attend the same class while staying in his bedroom leading to 0 exhaustion and more productivity. Recently India a website called Sarkari Naukri Ind is giving very innovation and effective online study material and education video for students.
Today everybody is talking about climate preservation, dying natural resources are a question of worry for many. But the problems need an effective solution and not just words. Online Education has led to the development of e-books in the form of pdfs. It can be accessed through PC or smartphones and educational institutes are also encouraging its use amongst students. This has reduced the production of paperback books causing less deforestation.
Opens up creative thinking
Creativity is the most important element that is required in the recipe for a good education system. Why America or Britain have more creative people in their country? This is because they have such a creative education system. In India, we have a traditional way of teaching/learning in which just mug up the syllabus and appear in the exam. Top the exam and you are good to go but do good marks mean a productive or creative mind? There are many instances where we find that the students who topped the class are doing nothing happening. But the average students of the same class are in a better position than him. Online Education helps in illustrating the lessons that a student learnt making it a more creative approach. It goes like this the lessons can be presented through video or image for wider user engagement.
A boon for Specially-abled Children
Specially-abled children have to face a lot of difficulties in education as compared to normal students. It becomes really difficult for special children to adjust to that environment. Also, it becomes difficult for a teacher to give attention to those students in a crowd of 60 students. Online Education is a boon for those children as teachers who are trained for teaching those children can upload videos on interactive platforms. The online education helps the children in learning easy through a lot of diagrams, videos, 3d images.
