Education Technology, also known as EdTech, is the advanced practice of using technological tools in classrooms to create an exclusive and more engaging learning experience for students.
This custom has significantly grown in the pandemic, where the students couldn’t physically attend the classes and therefore had to depend on Zoom and other online mediums for their education. These obstacles gave rise to an innovative solution that is now being widely accepted and adopted by top universities and schools worldwide.
The upside to embracing technology for education is that it can be personalized as per the needs of the students, which can make the whole experience more engaging.
Education technologies can be adopted in many forms, like Virtual Reality Sessions, Gamification, Artificial Intelligence, IoT devices, etc. EdTech provides plenty of alternatives to choose from, which has made the whole adoption of these technologies alluring and acceptable on a larger scale.
And while we have Byjus, Unacademy, which is changing the face of EduTech in India, Israel is forging a brand-new educational model that focuses on creating a lasting impact and transforming the education sector across the globe.
