Katherine Myers, Content and Off Page SEO at Add People, highlights 5 reasons as to why online learning has become a crucial part of education
Education technology refers to a range of technology, programmes and software that are used to facilitate learning. Usually taking the form of websites, apps, educational games and online courses, these resources have some unique benefits that make them highly effective when combined with traditional teaching methods. For this reason, technology is being used more often by both teachers and students for lesson planning, self-study, homework and revision. Ed-tech isn’t a replacement for classroom learning, however, when combined with traditional teaching methods, it can provide a wealth of extra learning opportunities, making the lives of both teachers and students easier.
Why do we need education technology?
It makes education more accessible
In the past, getting extra help with your studies outside of school, whether through textbooks or private tutors would be very expensive, which could place limitations on students struggling in school. Today, a huge number of educational resources are available to anyone with an internet connection whether that’s through a computer, smartphone or iPad. With higher education being so expensive today, it’ …

Re-imagining engineering education in a post Covid-19 world

Imagine what we would have done in the absence of the internet and all the technology tools we have access to, during the long and continuing Covid-19 lockdown. While technology has been a huge enabler in these times, one is also left wondering why the world needs 18 months to deal with this pandemic. Has scientific and technical innovation not progressed enough to find quicker solutions? With the advent of data sciences and AI, could we not speed up the making of a vaccine? What is the road ahead for science and engineering education, and how do we create and strengthen our educational institutions to better equip ourselves against perhaps even greater challenges such as climate change, cyber security and urban mobility? Covid-19 is a wake-up call, highlighting the urgency to look at everything in a new way. This situation is also exacerbated by the fact that the state of engineering and technology education in India is far from encouraging. Various reports suggest that a large percentage of the 1.3 million engineers who graduate annually are unemployable. Engineering seats in a lot of colleges are going empty. And the AICTE recently decided not to grant permission for any new engineering colleges. On …

Huawei’s Deputy Chairman Ken Hu gave the opening remarks on how technology drives equitable and quality education.

Improving Equitable and Quality in Education through Technology

Digital technology plays an important role in education. However, 50% of the world’s population still does not have Internet access, and many people lack the skills needed to use digital devices. As a result, the digital divide in education continues to widen. Hu stated, “We believe that everyone, everywhere has the right to education and the equality of opportunity it brings. As a technology company, Huawei wants to help with connectivity, applications and skills by focusing on two important areas of connecting schools …
