National Education Policy 2020: Role of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) for Implementing the Modern Education System



One of the most effective strategies for changing the whole country into a digitally empowered society and knowledge economy is education. Education and technology are intertwined, and technology plays a critical role in delivering education under challenging situations, such as the Covid-19 issue. People have been compelled to remain inside due to the worldwide Covid-19 virus pandemic and the government's following lockdowns to contain the situation, which has significantly affected the education sector. Learning has risen to new heights thanks to ICT in educational institutions. Even though students from various backgrounds, particularly those from the economically disadvantaged, face numerous challenges in continuing their education with the help of the online education system, educational institutions worldwide are doing their best to address the situation using information and communication technology. The National Education Policy – 2020, if implemented correctly, can alter the Indian educational system and bring about significant improvements. The fundamental goal of the National Education Policy – 2020 is to close the gap in the current education system, which is completely automated and enhances students' cramming strength but limits their independent thinking ability. Switching from rote to activity-based or experiential learning will increase the learners' learning experience by providing hands-on training opportunities. It will allow the development of scientific temperament in young students.
... This paper attempted to provide information on current e-learning trends. Although e-learning is a relatively new notion in education, it has advanced rapidly, and many new ideas have emerged due to the fast advancement of e-learning [4] . This paper lists the following topics: Mobile learning (m-learning), gamification, blended learning, cloud-based e-learning, Internet of Things (IoT), beacon e-learning, micro-learning, and adaptive e-learning Above all, it is critical to recognize that e-learning is an essential component of learning and that learners may get instructors from anywhere in the world via this method. ...

In today’s information and communication technology age, e-learning is critical to an individual’s growth and, by extension, a nation’s future. The prime objective of this paper is to study the emerging e-learning trends in education. The data used in this study are secondary data which are qualitative in nature. Traditional education is teacher-centered, and teaching the same topic in the best possible way every time is challenging. Moreover, a skilled instructor cannot simultaneously teach in numerous places in traditional learning. However, e-learning overcomes this disadvantage of conventional education, becomes a powerful weapon for individual intellectual progress, and contributes to the development of an educated society. Apart from repetition, traditional learning has several disadvantages, including high costs, confinement to the classroom, set-time learning, fixed idea learning, and so on, all of which may be avoided by the current e-learning trends. In every country, e-learning is essential for developing intellectual think tanks. E-learning will highlight artificial intelligence (AI), mobile learning, gamification, blended learning, cloud-based e-learning, Internet of Things (IoT), and other emerging e-learning trends. In this chapter, more focus has been given to presenting new e-learning trends, the goals of each technique for simple e-learning, and the subsequent technological advancements in e-learning.
