Transcript of "WES 2014 - Role of Technology in Changing Dynamics of Education - Rakesh Rathi, Head – Education Vertical, RICOH India Ltd."

  1. 1. Transforming Education with Technology 0 Rakesh Rathi Business Head – Education Vertical Ricoh India Ltd
  2. 2. The Demand for Education is Huge 1 573 Million Population falling in 0 – 24 age group in India 314 Million Population of USA 59 Million Population of Australia and Canada put together
  3. 3. The Role of Technology in Education  Higher Volume of Consistent Quality at Low Cost 2  Adam Smith’s Pin Factory  Division of Labor  Specialization  Economies of Scale
  4. 4. The Role of Technology in Education  Can tinkering with tradition classroom teaching achieve all three?  Higher Volume  Bigger Class  Lower Quality  Latest Technologies  Better Quality  Higher Costs  Giving fancier tools to the individual artisan will not make pin making more effective! 3 1980’s – Brick In The Wall……….. 2010’s – Staring At A Wall………..??
  5. 5. The Critical Questions  Is Technology the answer?  What is the question?  Should technology be deployed to improve existing teaching systems?  Or should technology be leveraged to create new teaching systems?  When will we see the ultimate technology that will revolutionize education?  Has Physics found the Theory of Everything? 4
  6. 6. The Ingredients of a Winning Proposition From 1999 to 2002, the amount of new information produced approximately equaled the amount produced in the entire history of the world up to that time (Varian & Lyman, 2003, University of California, Berkeley) Technology must  Enable the learner to learn and use information and tools in more powerful ways  Be coordinated with the training of teachers  Be integrated into their teaching  Be supported by curricular, assessment, and school contexts  Must prepare students to compete for jobs in a technology-driven global economy 5
  7. 7. Technology Predictions! 6
  8. 8. Technology Predictions! In 1922, New York University operated its own radio station, with plans to broadcast practically all its courses Other schools followed, including Columbia, Harvard, Kansas State, Ohio State, Purdue, Wisconsin, Utah and many others By 1945 radio courses had disappeared from the market 7 Radio will become a chief arm of education Classroom will be abolished Child of the future be stuffed with facts as he sits at home Or even as he walks about the streets with his portable receiving-set in his pocket?
  9. 9. EdTech 2.0 #1 Individually Tailored Education / Adaptive Learning Programs / Analytics Assisted Learning / Intelligent Tutoring System 8  Roots in artificial intelligence  The system will be able to adjust to the student/user's learning method  Enables extensive diagnosis of student's weaknesses  Provides unique feedback tailored to the answers  Merges instructional time with testing time – students aren’t even aware that they are being tested
  10. 10. EdTech 2.0 #2 The Flipped Classroom 9  Students learn new content online by watching video lectures, usually at home  What used to be homework (assigned problems) is now done in class  Teachers offering more personalized guidance and interaction with students, instead of lecturing.  This is also known as backwards classroom, inverted classroom, reverse teaching, and the Thayer Method.
  11. 11. EdTech 2.0 #3 Cloud Computing 10  The cloud will make up 25 percent of the IT budget in K-12 education. In four years, that figure will reach 35 percent  Within one year, the percentage of the IT budget they expect to save on cloud computing will be 20 percent, and that will jump to 27 percent in four years (Survey by CDW-G, a division of the US based $10b CDW Corporation, a provider of technology products and services for business, government and education)
  12. 12. EdTech 2.0 #4 The Plugged-in Parent  Social Media Platforms to change the way  Teacher – Parent collaborate  Parent – Parent collaborate  Student – Student collaborate  Student – Teacher Collaborate 11
