Various tools such as smartboards, LCD screens, videos, radio among others, make it sustainable for the teachers to deliver information more efficiently.

Technology can become ‘wings’ that will allow the educational world to fly farther and faster than ever before – if we will allow it. – Jenny Arledge, Director of College and Career Readiness/CTE Director (Awarded CTE administrator of the Year 2019), Texas.

Industrial revolution 4.0 has brought technology into our daily lives. With its unremitting advancement, integrating it into education plays a pertinent share in enhancing school education and knowledge sharing. At schools, technology, while supporting knowledge amalgamation, motivates and inspires students to go beyond textbooks and explore a world without physical boundaries. Human interaction, a good teacher, and an appropriate learning environment can never be replaced by technology. It can only be enhanced.
The need
According to the World Economic Forum research, it is estimated that by 2020, there will be 1.5 million new digitised jobs around the world. The same research also mentions that currently, 90 percent of the organisations have a shortage of IT skills, and 75 percent of educators and students realise that there is a huge gap in their abilities needed to meet the requirement of the IT workforce. It is imperative that the school ecosystem is upskilled, and includes digital education to make the students future-ready.
