SELF PACED LEARNING AND ED-TECH
Education has been evolving since time immemorial. The new wave of digitization has driven an outcrop of start-ups in the education industry – collectively called ed-tech.
These start-ups offer a plethora of resources and services from home tutors to online courses, study material, test series, and preparatory material for competitive exams.
The question whether the concept of self-paced learning – learning at your own speed – evolved from these stat-ups, or vice versa is moot. What is important is to understand that these apps and services offer students an opportunity to study when they like, how they like, and at their own pace.
These apps may supplement school academics or help homeschoolers learn concepts in a different way.
