EdTech companies in India 2021

What are EdTech Companies in India?

Gone are the times when teachers had to teach on chalkboards using books. The whole class was led by a single teacher using the same technique; whether the student is weak or strong at subjects, a child might be good at maths may need special attention in social science. But the traditional method uses one teaching methodology, fit for all, which is not much efficient for the overall growth of every child.

EdTech companies in India is the answer and the solution to traditional methods of teaching. It refers to education in which tech tools are used to teach students and make classrooms interactive, for example, instead of teaching on chalkboards, using Smart screens. Using Tablets, laptops instead of old days desktops so that students can learn anywhere, be it on the bus or playground.

Recording lessons and class notes so that students focus on what is being taught rather than taking notes. And recorded lectures help students to learn and revise concepts quickly as and when needed.

EdTech companies in India have tools that help teachers conduct test paperless, and making a question paper digitally is far easier than getting them printed. Students can take thousands of tests online, be it subjectwise, chapter wise or topic wise. Artificial Intelligence or AI is there to help students analyze their results and their weak and strong areas.
