With the advent of the digital revolution, nearly each element of our life has been impacted. More than 3.5 billion people have internet access. Further more than 5 billion people anticipated to own a mobile device, half of which are smartphones. This amount of connectivity has changed how individuals interact with one another, get news, and view the world.
It’s no surprise, however, that these digital transformation trends have had a significant impact on the education sector. The digital transition has had an impact on classrooms. Also, how teachers communicate with their students, from elementary school teachers to those in higher education. The COVID-19 pandemic, which shut down schools in innumerable locations around the world, has expedited these changes.
Modern students’ needs are evolving as a result of their extensive usage of digital sources. They are always on the lookout for new ways to learn outside of the standard classroom setting. To address the dilemma, schools and institutions are looking for ways to establish alternate teaching models. Today’s students engross in a virtual world via the internet and cellphones, consuming a vast amount of information. It leaves schools and universities with little choice but to adapt.
Gone are the days when education was only available to a select few. Students from all walks of life can now compete on an equal footing thanks to technological advancements. The educational ecosystem is driven by constant technological innovation. As well as the growing popularity of social media and the Internet of Things (IoT).
Rise of Inkclick:
To help students keep learning and excel in their lives, two young and powerful ed-tech enthusiasts Ankit Sanan and Parul Uppal founded Inkclick. India’s first digital social learning platform, helping students network with their peers and industry professionals for free and learn from global teachers at low rates and so that they can fight against today’s competitive world and make a place for themselves.
