Background :-

  • In the past few years, we witnessed a major change in the world with the advancement of technology. Education sector is no exception to this.
  • The way children are taught and the way of interaction between students and teachers was changed a lot with the progress in Technology.

Major changes we witnessed :-

  • Distance education was totally redefined. Online classes bridged the gap between regular and distance education.
  • Many apps, blogs and websites are helping students as well as teachers and changed the definition of formal education.

Positive Side :-

  • With the help technology, now students are learning concepts crystal clear.
  • Online courses increased the access of education and bridged the gap of quality levels among countries. Now, anyone can do any course from any college around the world.
  • With the availability of vast knowledge in the internet, students are clarifying their doubts and can increasing their scope of learning.
  • Those traditional boring classrooms are replaced by the interesting video lessons with the help of technology.
  • Teachers around the world are now collaborating and learning the best methods of education from one another.

Negative Side :-

  • Present Generation students have a lot of things to do, and have a lot of way to learn. This can create unnecessary pressure, confusion and stress in them. We are now witnessing mental health problems in students too.
  • People are now relying on the ready available information, instead of referring to the standard books written by experts.
  • Traditional method of teaching imparts discipline in students.
  • With increasing virtual communication, some students are developing social phobia.

Situation in India:-

  • India is not fully utilizing the technological advancement in education sector. Though a large section of India is benefited, still a section of Indian population is not enjoying the fruits of technology in the field of education.
  • There exists between the quality of education in Private institutes and Public educational institutions.


Technology has revolutionized education. It has improved the access and efficiency of learning. But still India has a long way to go to increase its literacy levels and to spread the benefits of technology.

    yes i believe that online classes helps a lot now a days due to covid 19 but if we compare online classes with traditional classes then i would like to go for traditional lectures because in online lecture and every thing students are feel more relaxed about the exams as well which is not right actually even students dont think about the topic they just apply earphones in and heard the session just for attendance even they dont bother which topic has taught its use and why are we studying it not at ll and sometimes it also happens that their is a actually a wall between student and teacher like video is off so students on the session and do chatting and see Instagram reels as well. it also affects on the physical and mental health of a students and create problem for themselves only. we can also say that tradition study teaches us a discipline, way of life , handling the situations at last moment, punctuality and many more.
    Thank you

    As I read GD ,the Technology in education is playing an important role,now student will not only depend on only source teachers or standard expert written books ,he/she can go through browsing can find many sources of subject ,as of current situation internet is available at cheeper rate in india, rather than going expensive formal classes by paying thousands of rupees .

    No doubt , you have explained very well . Nowadays due to covid 19 , online classes are there to provide education to the students . But many people have some doubts regarding this such as
    Can online classes substitute offline classes?
    Is online studying better than a classroom?
    What are the disadvantages of online classes?
    I have discussed all these questions honestly and you can read it here

    There is an advantage and disadvantage too. In this covid pandamic everyone educating digitally which means through technology.. But no one understanding anything and not concentrating also.. They doing something by turn off videos this is happening in these days so direct class learning is better than these

    In my opinion that the schools in semi urban and rural areas still do not have proper infrastructure and the families of middle class are not able to pay fees and they are not able to give quality education only this technology is useful to urban people and they have improving their knowledge so government should take responsibility of schools in semi urban and rural areas and give them best infrastructure to develop the student knowledge and let them know about what is happening all around the world

    With the increasing involvement of technology in our day to day lives, it has become the necessity of ours to update the way of teaching & grasping the knowledge we are provided with. Today there has been a shift in the culture of learning from memorising to understanding.Now it has become a way easier & simpler for students to clear their doubts by referring to the videos available online which can be accessed multiple times.Students are provided with various facilities along with the classroom teachings which includes online video lectures, educational Cd’s, virtual classrooms, digital classrooms, e- learning, distance education & correspondence courses. The process of teaching is not just limited to the visiting of schools & colleges but now students have all time access to the study material with the help of technology.

    In India govt is not taking care regarding the govt schools and still lot of school are not having the minimum Technology such as computers , Digital labs .This is so sad,we can see the full technology in Private schools only. But now in India A middle class family could not spending for their children’s primary education also, as private educational institutions charging thousands of rupees fees even from the first standard to ssc. Till the Govt concentrated regarding this issue, we cannot achieve full Literacy.

    As I read this I realize that this is mainly applicable in developed countries, but as an educator from India, it bothers me to know that technology is still a mirage.
