Use digital tools to bridge learning gaps: World Economic Forum

The World Economic Forum today launched a new ‘Education 4.0 India Report’ on bridging learning gaps and making education accessible to all through technology. This report is a collaboration between the World Economic Forum, the United Nations Children’s Education Fund (UNICEF) and YuWaah (Generation Unlimited India).

While India has made significant strides in solving some of the most critical problems in education, it has been reported that nearly 70 percent of 3rd grade children in India lack basic reading and math skills. To overcome this problem, storytelling, read-aloud and interactive content, flipbooks and the use of digital tools can be used to make learning fun and interesting for students.

“The most successful applications of online learning and digital content during the pandemic have demonstrated their ability to provide students from near and far access to the best learning resources, as well as enable students to study at their own pace and receive personalized content and rating. the report states.

The report proposes using personalized worksheets and videos at home and creating digital communities with the help of teachers. Among several other solutions, the report also proposes video content, homework and quizzes delivered on WhatsApp every day to encourage goal-oriented learning. According to the report, this can also facilitate sensitization and capacity building among parents.

With this report, the organizations aim to tackle inequalities in the education sector in India and hope to empower and engage young people. It proposes a roadmap to improve the Indian school system and serves as a call to action for all stakeholders in the ed-tech space to come together to transform the sector.
