The education sector in India has incorporated a few changes in the technology but it has still not shown a significant change in its ‘old-school’ practices. A lot of digitization has happened in the sector but the school system has an essence of traditional values with blackboard teaching ways. There are not much transformational changes. It’s high time that the old school practices in schools and colleges need to get a permanent break, and technological interventions on the school level.
