Education is the most important phase of one’s life that defines the goal and purpose he/she has to achieve. Good education is the pillar of sustainable development of the society.  And the ever-changing digital world has a huge impact on conventional education sector.  And if the digitalization continues its approach, the entire academic sector will be a new space in coming few years. The upcoming educational field will be far changed, it will be more immersive and hopefully more constructive to the people than it is today. The interference of technology has completely changed the way of learning and has made an irreplaceable place in the classrooms. 


The K-12 education model is the example of this changing educational sphere. It’s implementation in schools is making the education stress-free for both students and educators. Moreover, it also inspires students to freely present their ideas and exchange thoughts in a community where they all belong. 


A movement towards digitalization


In present days,  the students belong to a world that is connected and alive outside the classroom, so the conventional method of teaching won’t work now. Hence, schools need recent age digital solutions in their teaching methods to involve this generation of playstations and iPads.  The K-12 education model is inspired from the digitalization and helps to make their classroom education modern and broader. 


It can be said that today technology is not making its edging way into the classrooms only but also imparting the higher education. It is because of the digitalization only that we have our own archive in every classroom and even in our pockets. Today with the blessing of online education, there is no need of even attending the classrooms or university in person. Moreover, classrooms of modern age are no less than the movie halls with audio visual content making the learning environment more creative and interactive. 


The advancement in technology has given birth to different user-friendly school management platforms that are cloud based and eliminates the manual paperwork completely. With these user-friendly digital programs, it is even possible to manage everything online from student database and payment gateway to finance and transportation management. Teachers can now share various activities with individuals or they can create groups and assess their performance to share with parents in real time. And to do all these they don’t even need a paper and pen as everything is on their fingerprints. The digital word has not only upgraded the IT world but it has its rigid footprints in almost every industry and education is making no difference.


So the grouping of traditional education and modern digitalization is a way we can encourage our future generations to become global contributors towards overall success.
