A few years from now, India will have the world’s largest and youngest workforce. Every student’s potential to meet global standards needs to be tapped. India has numerous opportunities for education technology (EdTech) that can ensure this.
Most technology solutions including the internet have a bent towards the English language. In India, we see software in Hindi as well but our diverse country is home to scores of other languages. This can become a barrier in technology adoption, especially in localized regions where the only language used is the regional tongue. That’s why it’s important to select an online school management system that supports the language of the audience it serves.
India is home to the world’s largest and youngest population of 450 million ranging from 5 to 24 years old. This means India’s young workforce is growing steadily against the world’s ageing population. All the more reason for Indian students to be backed by qualitative and competitive education that readies them to meet the forthcoming global demand. It’s a tall order but India can step up to the challenge by acutely identifying and addressing problem areas.
