Top 20 Education Technology Companies - 2018

Education is what transforms a crude rock into a polished diamond. It refines the thinking and actions of people and molds them to be citizens who contribute positively to society. The importance of education is now acknowledged by all levels of society and everyone is willing to take extra measures to embrace it. The old saying, ‘you cannot teach an old dog new tricks’ is unfounded in today’s world. Be it the child of a farmer or a seasoned worker at a factory, education has something for everyone.

However, in this day and age, it is irrational to expect that the archaic teaching methods of the past can prove to be effective. The field of education has evolved just as rapidly as all other industries. Smart classrooms and cloud computing have developed an inherently different system of education. Students can access customized learning programs from their portable devices, tailor-made to suit their acumen. Lessons are designed to provide real-world insights and make learning a fun and fulfilling exercise.

Not limited only to schools, industries all across are using technology to provide their workers with comprehensive training modules. With interactive videos and virtual laboratories, the practical side of education is integrated into the learning process. Technology is also making it possible to address the needs of differently abled learners, creating an inclusive environment where everyone is given an opportunity think, learn and grow.
