Effectiveness of ICT in Education

Being aware of the significant role of ICT in our life, especially in the educational activities, education authorities should be wise enough in implementing the strategies to empower ICT in supporting the teaching and learning process in the classroom

By Reetika Bose Feature Writer

Nowadays the role of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), in the education sector plays an important role, especially in the process of empowering the technology into the educational activities. Education sector can be the most effective sector to anticipate and eliminate the negative impact of ICT. Technology in another side can be the most effective way to increase the student’s knowledge.

The use of ICT in education adds value to teaching and learning, by enhancing the effectiveness of learning. It added a dimension to learning that was not previously available. After the inception of ICT in schools, students found learning in a technology enhanced environment more stimulating and engaging than in a traditional classroom environment

Talking about the presence of ICT in Education, Ashok Mehta, President- ICT and Skills, Smartclass Educational services Pvt Ltd, stretched out his views on the industry,” I am trying to work on relevant solutions particularly by integrating ICT.

 He  further added,” Looking at Pratham report highlighting the challenges in education, ICT has a pivotal role to play to address the issue of quality content and quality of teachers. Globally role of ICT has been acknowledged and appreciated. It's successful once teachers have appreciated. MHRD has already emphasised on the importance of ICT in education and there are some schemes already floated by the government where companies like Smartclass have made a huge contribution.

“ICT plays a catalytic role in enhancing learning in classroom and beyond. One needs to do a due diligence before a content provider is selected as content is the fulcrum”, said the President of Smartclass Educational pvt Ltd.

The founder of Kiwami, Ms Mitsuyo Tamai expressed her concern over the effectiveness of ICT on education. She said,” Looking at the present scenario of education, many changes have taken place especially in the teaching-learning to assessment and evaluation. Information and communication technologies are extremely influencing every discipline including Education. It is affecting every aspect of education from teaching-learning to assessment and evaluation. It improves the effectiveness of education. It aids literacy movements. It enhances scope of education by facilitating mobile learning and inclusive education. It facilitates research and scholarly communication. Impact of ICT and its potential for the education field is manifold. A judicious use of ICT technologies together with new functions and roles of education personnel can bring about more efficient and effective teaching learning-process.”

The main concern here is to bridge the differences amongst the students, parents and teachers leading to an effective interaction and a transparency between the three. An equal importance should also be given to promote the culture of learning at school and to support schools in sharing experience and information with others.
