Role of ICT in education system in India


Priya Pallavi, Dr. Niva Bara, Dr. BK Jha and Pankaj kumar

In this digital age, it is difficult to think of any event in our daily life that is not using information and communication technology. UNESCO has defined ICT as forms of technology that are used to transmit, process, store, create, display, share or exchange information by electronic means. It includes not only conventional technologies such as radio and television, but also modern technologies such as cell phones, Internet and Intranet, hardware and software, satellite systems, expert systems, teleconferences, etc., as well as the various services and associated applications. Within education, ICT have begun to have a presence, but the impact has not been as extensive as in other fields. Education is a very socially oriented activity and quality education has traditionally been associated with strong teachers who have a high degree of personal contact with students. The use of ICT in education lends itself to more student-centered learning environments, and this often creates some tensions for some teachers and students. But as the world moves rapidly towards information and digital media, the role of ICT in education is increasingly important and this importance will continue to grow and develop in the 21st century. This document highlights the various impacts of ICT in contemporary higher education and explores possible future developments. The document argues the role of ICT in the transformation of teaching and learning and seeks to explore how this pact will be offered and delivered in the universities and colleges of the future.
