Let’s see what India’s education system will look like after the Covid19 pandemic ends
The coronavirus pandemic has severely disrupted the education system. With the transition from the classroom to the computer screen, almost every aspect of learning is tested. Education, attendance, evaluation, the role of technology, and the forms of human interaction are all innovative, and it is increasingly likely that some of these changes will continue.
The prolonged closure of schools and universities also highlights some fundamental shortcomings in the education system, as we know that different stakeholders face challenges and struggles. bridge the gap and education will change forever. Blended learning will be the expected new standard for NEP2020. On-screen or distance learning continues to play an important role after schools reopen after the pandemic. Digitization of education is the future, and we made great strides in this direction even before the pandemic.
For more than a year, online courses and distance education have been the vehicle for learning for students. Teachers and students are adapted to take full advantage of this learning mode. This does not mean that distance learning is the best or only way. Some small town schools are unable to organize distance learning courses and many students suffer from this disease. Therefore, we need to take steps to make distance learning more accessible and accessible to all.
An important aspect of the pandemic is that formal classroom education with human contact remains the best way to learn. However, technology is a great catalyst and therefore plays an important role in the education system. Most institutions are experimenting with digital learning and teachers need to learn to adapt to technology, so teacher training should also be reorganized to include the practical aspects of technology. into education. Effective use of technology, together with modern pedagogy, will be an important part of future teacher education programs.
Significant progress has been made in digitizing and expanding the reach of distance education. We need to improve the accessibility and quality of the resources available for distance education. Convenient devices for high-speed Internet access and access to online resources are a big problem in cities and small towns. Even within metropolitan areas, the quality and bandwidth of an Internet connection can vary from region to region. This is not an easy problem to solve, and the government is taking steps to promote infrastructure development and identify policies to improve the quality of the Internet in the country.
The main concern for parents and teachers is the learning imbalance that occurs in online classes. Teachers understood little about how well they understood and understood the concept of the subject when they were teaching behind the screen. As educational institutions reopen, academic imbalances become an issue and this gap must be bridged to establish an average. The power of artificial intelligence helps automate tasks like scoring. The AI also offers the ability to personalize learning, respond to students’ needs, focus on specific topics, and help students progress at their own pace. As AI progresses, adaptive programs such as education will only improve and expand.
