Technology is rapidly growing and transforming the lives of people in the twenty-first century. In the educational field, the role of technology has been prominent, and its impact is being seen much more broadly.

India is preparing to lead the world in 6G technology.

India has formed a Technology Innovation Group (TIG) to prepare the manufacturing and services ecosystem to capitalise on the telecom sector's Sixth Generation or 6G opportunity.

The Department of Transportation has established a 6G Technology Innovation Group (TIG) with the goal of co-creating and participating in the development of the 6G technology ecosystem through increased participation in capability description and standard development at international standard-setting bodies.

1. Individualised pace

Each student has a unique way of absorbing information at their own pace. Students have more time to think and process information at their own speed during online education.

This further enables them to work in a confident manner and eliminate all possible shortcomings in their learning process.

For teachers, it is an opportunity to focus on each student and provide undivided attention without interruption.

2. Flexibility

One of the best advantages of online learning is the element of flexibility. Flexibility learning provides the students as well as teachers with full control and accountability of their learning and teaching respectively.

It further enables them to set time as per individual requirements and schedule.

For example, some students can study better during the evening but traditional institutions of learning restrict them by offering only daytime classes.

Technology-based learning allows these students to decipher their learning and tailor the course as per their individual schedule and capabilities.

3. Improves teamwork

It is observed by the teachers that students tend to help each other more when they are using technology in the classroom.

Similarly, when students are asked to work on assignments or projects in small groups, technologically-advanced learners tend to help their inexperienced friends.

Moreover, they are exposed to diverse ideas and such group efforts ultimately result in a swift exchange of information from one student to another.

4. Better interactive experience

Students can now learn more actively and productively with the help of mobile phones, tablets and computers. With videos, simulations and digital books, students can now access a subject/ teaching unit with more enthusiasm.

Moreover, this results in students' effort to dig deeper into an area that interests them further allowing them to potentially recognise their talents.
