EdTech Tools

Today's classrooms have moved beyond the cumbersome desktop computers that were once the norm and are now tech-infused with tablets, interactive online courses, and even robots that can take notes and record lectures for students both online and offline.

This influx of Edtech tools is changing classrooms in a variety of ways and making it easy for students to stay engaged through fun forms of learning; IoT devices are being hailed for their ability to create digital classrooms for students, whether they're physically in school, on the bus or at home.

As we attempt to prepare students for a tech-savvy job,  the classroom of the future will be tech-heavy. EdTech is the answer whether students are working on a presentation, developing a formative assessment tool, or you simply want a more engaging learning platform. You can ensure that your students have what they need to be prepared and that your learning experiences are as effective as possible by incorporating some of these technologies into your classroom now.

 92% of instructors feel that technology will have a significant impact on how they teach in the near future. As a result, it's critical to comprehend the advantages of edtech in terms of improved communication, cooperation, and overall quality of education.

Engati

With Engati's conversational AI-enabled chatbots, colleges can notify students and faculty with course updates, timetables, important deadlines, announcements, and other information.

By using WhatsApp chatbot as a learning management system, your students get a more effective way to communicate and learn new things - all they need to do is drop a message on the WhatsApp bot and it will explain the concept whether it's 11 pm or 5 am.
