Personalized learning, though premised on differentiating one student from another, has seemed to work best when it attends, first and foremost, to the needs of teachers as a group. If tech is, indeed, merely a tool of personalized learning, then what does that make the teacher?
In India, companies like Wipro, Accenture, IBM and others are tying up with edtech partners like upGrad, Simplilearn and Udacity to have a ready-trained workforce they can deploy on projects. The edtech companies provide campus recruits the required platform, content, assignments and project work in their last semester of college to ensure they are prepared with programming skills and emerging digital skills before they join.
Countries around the world vary drastically in edtech adoption. The US and China lead the crowd with western Europe and other Asian countries close behind. Reasons for such discrepancy include infrastructure, investment in education, culture, and policies. Looking ahead, developing countries might need more than gaining access to the Internet through mobile phones to close their gaps in edtech.
