National Education Policy 2020: The need to integrate technology in education is now!


 The National Education Policy 2020 (NEP 2020), which replaces the 1986 policy, has been in the works since 2016. This new education policy intends to integrate the global dynamics and technology in education. The policy emphasizes common access to education for all in the nearing future. It weighs the importance of digitalization in the Indian education system. With the help of an autonomous body, the National Educational Technology Forum (NETF), it will devise technology in higher education. With EdTech gaining popularity and technology infrastructure coming into the limelight, many educational institutes favor implementing a blended learning structure. Blended learning implicates a combination of the physical classroom and online lectures. 

Here are the measures to consider transitioning per the NEP 2020 and advance ourselves with technology in education.

 Online Learning and Online courses 

If we talk about technology in education today, we have come a long way from traditional teaching methods of a physical classroom to online teaching with virtual classrooms. Students and teachers who have been interacting in schools and colleges for many years tend to feel secluded while doing these virtual classes. To retain their interest and spirit in the virtual classroom, it becomes vital to create and design online courses that are more inclusive, comprehensive, and engaging. 

 With the revolution in Edtech, Institutes are gradually adopting distance learning and e-learning formats, changing how education is delivered to students. With a significant number of courses, including technical studies, students in remote areas can access all forms of learning, including the specially-abled and underprivileged students. A recent gulf news report says that India will deploy a 5G mobile network and connect over 600,000 villages through the broadband network in the next two years. 

 Development of Digital Contents

Developing digital content that includes presentations, videos, or animated sketches to

impart knowledge plays an essential role in NEP 2020. Therefore, institutes and colleges should constantly endeavor to develop strategies to deliver engaging content to the students. On the other hand, to do the same, the institutes will have to must train their teachers and staff on content-ICT-pedagogy integration, based on the structure given in the National Curriculum Framework handbook.

The institutes need to be ready with a digital infrastructure that will easily complement the digital content and its accessibility to every student. The higher education institutes should implement a digital library that can store e-books that students can access using the online portals. Perhaps, this access could be given to all the students irrespective of the type of education.

Collaboration Platforms and Competency-Based System

The latest tools, techniques, and software like ERP, LMS, EasyAccredite, all on a single platform, allow cutting-edge innovation in how the ed-tech industry functions today. Digital boards, screen sharing, and chatting promote better collaboration of ideas and higher participation in lectures. Moreover, every student is different, and so is their learning technique and pace. With competency-based education, every student can earn at their own pace and based on their skillset.
