With the changing technological landscape and increasing use of tech-driven devices in everyday life, the nature of educational technology being used across schools is also seeing a shift. In April this year, Shiv Nadar School, DLF City, started such an initiative for students in classes 6 and 7 on a pilot basis. It entailed giving devices to individual students as a direct technological intervention inside the classroom. “We have given Apple iPads to students. Our focus is on ensuring that learning is made fun and engagement levels sustain,” said Mark Nelson, head of the school’s IT department. Parent opinion Children need to be taught through a combination of both digital and traditional assignments. Everything cannot be done on digital devices,” said Tripti Singh, whose children go to two different private schools in the city.
