You may forget to carry your books to college but cannot go a day without your phone. Well, since technology has become a vital part of our lives, why not use it in the right way for a gain. If technology and technological innovations are used in education to improve the quality of education, it will promote a better education system and increase the standard of education. There are many new fascinating innovations that are making education not only informative but also fun and interesting.
Machine Learning is one of the best innovations in the educational field. E-learning is a form of learning that makes student self-dependent, confident and creative. When student learn something by themselves it boosts their confidence and enhances creative thinking. Machine learning also helps in reducing the stress on educators giving them more time to focus of developing better content. Virtual classroom, online chats, virtual mentors, assessments are all technological hacks that are incorporated in online learning.
It may sound unfamiliar but digital library is not an alien terminology. In fact, it has been adapted by many schools and colleges. Student love to read, especially things that interest them. However, many a times conventional libraries do not offer the books that the student is looking for due to unavailability or space issues. Hence, to address this issue, many schools have now start digital library wherein all books are available online as e-books. This is accessible and convenient for students and also portable.

It is an essential and effective form of learning especially in situations like these where schools and colleges are shut due to the pandemic. In crisis like these, virtual learning and teaching bridges the gap between teachers and students so that education is not hampered. Virtual classroom is a fascinating product of technology that can connect students and teachers from any part of the world at the same time making education convenient and accessible.
Robotics and Automation
Automation and robotics have taken over many business fields and has proved to be a beneficial resource. In the field of education too, automation and robotics is very helpful in keeping students engaged. Introducing robotics in the curriculum, especially for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), is in high demand these days. Robotics can be highly motivating for students and can help in keeping them focused on the subject.
Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality
Empowering the system with automation, artificial intelligence is a huge vault in the education industry. Automating every kind of learning resource is a significant aspect of availing artificial intelligence. AR/VR is a new form of learning that is being adapted gradually in education and is proving to be very effective.
In a generation where students are unable to live without technology, it is best to use this power for their benefit. And there is no better way to do this than incorporate technology into learning.
