Technology has the power to improve student’s access to education and address the learning gaps. From virtual classrooms and virtual libraries to virtual laboratories and virtual educators – EdTech is transforming the education landscape!
Here are some of the features of 21st Century Education
A digital literacy curriculum (Ethics & Ergonomics, Cyber Security, Social Networks, Troubleshooting) equips students with digital citizenship skills. Students learn how to use social media in a safe and effective way –knowing not to post sensitive information, being aware of cyberbullies & scams and being careful not to post identifying/personal information.
STEM learning focuses on the integrated disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Its multidisciplinary approach to learning helps students understand how subjects integrate and work together. Students get the opportunity for exploration and in the process, they develop diverse skill sets required for future careers like Green Power Creator, 3D Printing Engineer, App Developer and more.
Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Students explore and learn about Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Machine Learning (ML) while understanding their real-world applications. They learn how to create AI applications for image recognition, build AI systems that play games and more.
The Train-the-Teacher Program includes in-depth technical training, training on 21st century skills, soft skills and classroom management, gamified approach to evaluation of skills and periodic assessments & reports. It helps in building teachers’ confidence and supports them to effectively deliver ICT courses in their schools.
Gamification in education helps to design, develop, and offer personalised learning to each student by analysing and evaluating their performance. Simulation of concepts, incentive-based learning and level advancement badges make it easy for students to understand the concepts and enhances their learning experience.
Robotics education helps in developing 21st century skills including coding through the creation, design, assembly, and operation of robots in a fun and engaging way. It prepares students for future job roles like Robotics Engineer, Aerospace Engineer, Computer Scientist, Mechanical Engineer, and Software Engineer.
Knowledge Management System (KMS)
KMS helps in educational activities like creating & delivering educational content, making learning interactive, tracking student achievement, collaborating on projects, and assessing students & analysing their results.
3D Design & 3D Printing
While working on design thinking projects, students learn to make their own design decisions and come up with solutions to real world problems. Students can take 3D printout of their projects using 3D printing technology and see their ideas come to life in the form of prototypes.
Immersive learning is a modern learning style that uses technologies like Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR) etc. to engage the senses of students and improve their learning outcome. It changes the way students see their learning content i.e. from 2D to 3D. Students can see, observe, interact and experience the learning for better understanding. From taking a virtual tour of the Egyptian pyramids to bringing 3D images of objects from the textbook pages into the classroom space – immersive learning helps in adding new elements to the standardized curriculum.
ICT 360 in alignment with NEP, provides ICT curriculum with ready-to-use content, design and computational thinking approach to projects as well as interdisciplinary learning material on an online platform that caters to today’s relevant technologies and future skills requirements. It is designed to help teachers improve their instructional practices with 21st century teaching skills through train-the-teacher program, build a strong foundation to empower students with the ability and skills to design & create amazing things on their own in a fun & engaging environment, excel in academics and prepare them to be industry- and career-ready.
With 50+ partner schools across India, it aims to empower students with creativity, problem-solving, design and tech skills from an early age. These skills are essential for future job roles like Graphic Designers, AI & ML Specialists, Software & Applications Developers, Animators, Robotics Engineers, Data Analysts, and IOT Specialists.
