“I used to walk 10 kilometers daily for attending school…You have so many facilities today!”

You must have heard such stories of struggle where your parents had to walk many kilometers to attend their schools & colleges daily. You probably have got schooled for scoring low grades! Well, that’s quite fair because from that era to this new digital era, a lot of transformation has taken place in the education sector. The young generation of today definitely has got so many advantages that our parent’s generation never had. Having said that, we must also not forget that the bar of education & competition is rising day by day!

Owing to the changing global standards of education, the role of ICT in education has become relevant or rather imperative. Before, we understand the importance of ICT in education; let us understand what ICT is.

What is the Role of ICT in Teaching Learning Process?

As you know, the definition of imparting knowledge in higher education has made a remarkable shift, it has become mandatory for teachers to implement edTech in the classroom. EdTech not just eases the workload of faculty members, but also, helps students to perform better, which in return will help them to build their careers. In simple words, ‘ICT’ in education stands for Information & Communication Technology in education, and it signifies the implementation of ERP technology for promoting innovative teaching & learning processes.

Here are the major benefits of ICT in education…

ICT in classroom for Encouraging Collaboration

Avant-garde approach replaces traditional methods

Everything can be shifted to a digital platform eradicating the boundaries of teaching & learning. It can prove to be extremely fruitful for children with physical disabilities who can’t attend the college frequently.

Access to a vast range of study materials

It enables teachers to share video tutorials, images, and e-books for helping students grasp the curriculum with ease. Also, students get a provision to get access to such study materials merely by login their portals. Thus, it promotes better education with self-paced & impactful learning.

Interactive teaching sessions with greater teacher-student collaboration

Teachers can arrange online tests & quizzes to understand whether the students are getting what they are being taught. For instance, the faculty members can arrange a quiz at the end of every week, and thus, keep track of student progress. The enhanced teacher-student collaboration will surely bring positive outcomes & escalate institutional growth.

NAAC/ NBA Accreditation with Ease

As per the guidelines of NBA & the NAAC, it is essential for an institution to focus on ICT enablement. Therefore, ICT enablement is a sureshot way to achieve the NAAC / NBA accreditation & gaining better NAAC / NBA rankings in the long run.

Is It Simple to adopt ICT by implementing Education ERP?
