  1. 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.

  3. In science technology has also increased the medium of know how weather and know your all information. Impossible of help technology world is not possible. With the help of technology now students are learning doubt Clear and increasing the scope of learnings.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.
