Read on to know how TechEd differs from EdTech.
Technology in Education (TechEd)
Technology in Education (Technological Studies) focuses on learning how technology works – it provides students with the opportunity to learn about the processes and knowledge related to technology that are required to solve problems and extend human potential.
The primary goal of TechEd is to develop technological literacy in all students (grades K-12) and enable them to use, manage, understand, and evaluate technology in general.
TechEd is concerned with a broad spectrum of technology, which is any innovation, change, or modification of the natural environment to satisfy perceived human needs and how technology/coding/programming/computer science accomplish this through design, making, problem solving and the interrelated disciplines of Math, Science, Engineering etc.
Technology in the future will play a more demanding role as it affects us as individuals as well as our society and our environment. TechEd will empower students to create their own tools rather than become plain consumers and inspire them to build a sustainable future.
ICT programs can help deliver TechEd in schools. Its integrated design and advanced tech curriculum enable students to identify, consider and solve problems through creative thinking, planning, design, and by working with different media, materials, and tools.
ICT programs offer courses on Graphic Design, Movie Making, 3D Digital Design, Game Design, Mechatronic Design, Web Design, Coding, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT) etc.
Educational Technology (EdTech)
Educational Technology or Instructional Technology focuses on the use of technology (computers, information systems, audio-visual equipment, media) across all subject areas.
The primary goal of EdTech is to use technology and enhance the teaching and learning processes in grades K-12.
EdTech is concerned with a narrow spectrum of technologies used for communication and the dissemination of information. It teaches using technology, instructing students in the use of a relatively small set of tools developed by technology.
Schools can use EdTech with the help of ICT programs to enhance their teaching and learning processes.
ICT programs provide KMS (Knowledge Management System) or LMS (Learning Management System) for students & teachers with ready-to-use content which allows them to learn anytime, anywhere. With advanced tools and tech curriculum, the Innovation Labs deliver experiential & futuristic learning in schools.
Through Train-The-Teacher program with Certification which includes in-depth technical training, training on 21st century skills, gamified approach to evaluation of skills, periodic assessments and reports – ICT programs help teachers deliver ICT courses effectively in their schools.
ICT 360 provides NEP aligned, STEM accredited 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 advanced tech skills from an early age. These skills are essential for future job roles like AI & ML Specialist, Game Designer, Graphic Designer, Software & Applications Developer, Animator, Robotics Engineer, Data Analyst, and IOT Specialist.
