  • Increases individual student learning by helping them to learn at their own pace
  • Increases learning satisfaction due to the interactivity with content
  • It helps address the different learning levels and styles of students
  • Can help to cover course material at a faster pace

What we should remember

  1. Lack of constant electric power means we need off-grid and low-power solutions.
  2. With low internet penetration in many developing countries, having content available offline and creating lightweight but robust courses will help overcome this challenge.
  3. Many developing countries have diverse languages and cultural nuances, so Edtech content should be in local languages and be in engaging and easy-to-understand formats.
  4. Edtech should be a collaborative effort between the technology, students, and teachers. Thus, teachers should be adequately trained in using such technologies, which are great supplements for teaching and student learning.
