Summing up 2020! - A Year of Digital Adoption and Transformation
“One of the very few positive aspects of COVID’s effects in 2020, was that traditional resistance to adopting Edtech in the classroom by schools & colleges around the world was broken. Institutional faculty and administrators had to quickly adapt to new pedagogies to facilitate effective online education of their students. I believe that some of these advanced methods of teaching will remain even after physical classrooms restart in 2021.
Additionally, the Indian government released a very forward-thinking National Education Policy which emphasized the need to move the education system away from exam-oriented rote learning and adapt to more interactive pedagogical methods that develop critical thinking & employability among graduates. It also planned to streamline regulations to encourage Indian edupreneurs to start and run high-quality institutions with less government interference. NEP 2020 needs to be quickly implemented by Indian states to ensure our country is able to benefit from our demographic dividend.”
