The proliferation of digital technologies is bringing radical changes in the way education is being delivered and received. The outreach of educational programs is improving with the digitalization of education providing both teachers and students new opportunities in skilling themselves thereby ensuring greater participation in the overall learning process. It is also helping in pioneering the concept of collaborative learning where all the minds can converge to create a unique learning experience transcending national boundaries.
Amidst the adoption of such technologies, to assess the impact of the well-established, PC for Education initiative – ‘Dell Aarambh’, Dell Technologies in India commissioned Kantar Research to conduct a study among 435 teachers across Aarambh cities and towns. The study considered outcomes, behaviours emerging from training on PCs for classrooms and the introduction of immersive learning experiences using technology. Some interesting findings on the use of PCs in the learning process include:
92 per cent of teachers establishing the device as a crucial means for education.
88 per cent believing that it has impacted their lives in a positive way.
Having 100 per cent attendance whenever the students have smart class.
