Across all the technological transformations, we cannot avoid talking about how technology has helped in making the education sector more efficient and accessible. Technologies like cloud computing, AI, and IoT have made it possible for scholars to learn their favorite lessons at their own pace. Here is an overview of how technology has made the education sector more efficient.
Interactive learning with “Smartboards”
To begin with, today we have Smartboards, which makes learning more interesting. The tutors can explain complex concepts with much ease to the students using infographics, tutorial videos, and highlighters which is not possible with the ordinary boards. Other than this, Smartboards makes learning more interactive and fun with the help of IoT technology. (Source: Smart Technologies, Interactive Classroom 1987).
Improved engagement of more students
Another interesting application of IoT in the education sector in attendance. This technology proves out to be very effective in monitoring the regularity, punctuality, and presence of the students more accurately. Further, in case any of the students is found missing from the classrooms, then an electronic message can be sent to the guardians as a safety measure.
Made the educational institutions safe
A natural calamity like an earthquake or an accidental outbreak like short-circuit can occur at any point of time. In such cases, an IoT sensor can prove to be a life-saving tool. It can alert during such outbreaks, and report the concerned authority to take the necessary measures in the minimum time-frame.
Providing better education for disabled
Education is for everyone! No matter, whether one is disabled or impaired. To bring the miracles of education to the disabled, IoT proves out to be a very effective technology. It accelerates the process of learning among such learners and helps them improve their knowledge.
Overall, technologies like AI, IoT, and others have improved the overall education quality. It has not only improved the accessibility but also made it easier for the learners to learn their favorite lessons at their own pace.
