The Changing Picture of Education
Roughly towards the end the last decade, education began changing, and so did the ways through which it was imparted started to undergo a paradigm shift as well. Today, education is at the brink of bursting its conventional bubble and careering its way towards becoming completely technology-oriented. But, it isn’t just education that’s changing. Every element of the education ecosystem is undergoing a similar kind of change. Parents are turning out to be more demanding, students are becoming smarter, and educators that constitute an important element of the education ecosystem, also are bringing a lot of changes in the teaching techniques, and in the education approach as a whole. Education is evolving. Therefore educators too must evolve to keep up with this new-age revolution.
