In this review meeting pertaining to the education sector, major emphasis was laid on enhancing and improving the learning experience by integrating the latest technology in the education sector. Options like using education portals, conducting online classes, and class-wise broadcast on education channels were also explored.

 

The official statement from the Prime Minister’s Office states that “The focus was on bringing uniformity in education providing universal access to quality education, improving the quality of elementary education, through a new national curriculum framework that focuses on multi-linguistic, 21st-century skills, integration of sport and art, environmental issues, etc.”

In order to ensure time-bound achievement of these goals and effective educational governance, the latest technologies like Artificial technology will be aggressively promoted.

 

Due to the nationwide lockdown expected to continue for another few weeks, it is important for the government to ensure that the education and learning processes do not stop.

As students are unable to move out of their homes and the schools and colleges might not open before July, using technological innovations is the only way forward. In the coming days, some significant announcements pertaining to the education sector can be expected from the government.
