About the event
As the debate over whether education technology, or "ed tech," can offer a good alternative to traditional education has continued since the closure of schools due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the JKAF aims to add new dimensions to the “crucial debate” by organizing an online event on December 27 which is aimed at bringing diverse stakeholders, policymakers, educationists, philanthropists and social entrepreneurs of Jammu and Kashmir together to share their views and opinions on the chosen topic.
The event will be focusing primarily on:
· Why do we need to take away the digital divide to ensure equity and non-discrimination in access to education?
· What are the challenges and differences in building a technology driven ed tech solution to develop solutions and education opportunities for all?
· How technology has changed how to teach and learn as well as the ability to collaborate over distances.
· How technology is eliminating the physical barriers to change the way education is delivered, accessed, assessed and perceived.
