16 November 2022 | 11:45 - 12:45 | English | Edtech By and For Digital Natives – Engaging, Enabling, Empowering
Digitisation is here to stay but the demand and need for offline education is equally robust and relevant and in fact, has grown stronger post the pandemic. However, inroads by Technology in the educational process have been deep, diverse and long-lasting. The question that confronts educationists is no more ‘Why tech, but what and how much of tech?’ The ideal hybrid is continually in the making and is totally contextual and domain specific.
Session will cover:
• EdTech’s existential dilemma - More Tech or more ED?
• EdTech: Complementary or supplementary?
• Engagement - Is it EdTech’s raison d’être?
• Digital Native Students: Role & Skill demanded from our educators?
