Abstract
Technology, today, is embedded in every aspect of human life. It has become the life and blood of modern society and will continue to be for a long time to come. It has evolved tremendously and will continue to do so to cater to the new needs of changing society. The iGen - those born in or after 1995 cannot imagine their life without technology. Technology which was once confined to industry has not influenced education sector as well. In fact, technology has been playing a prominent role at the forefront of education ever since learning and development came into being, right from carving symbols and figures on wall of caves, to Gurukul education where the students were taught the use of technology prevailing then, to using of artificial intelligence and virtual reality. Not long ago, education was pertained to the reading of books and listening to teachers which were boring to many students and tiresome to teachers. Some educational institutes tried to introduce activity-based education which of course motivated the students and increased the interest level to a certain extent, but the effect was not as expected. Talking about present times, the entire education system has been revolutionized. The classrooms are digitally empowered, and internet has made education accessible beyond class rooms. Education today is no more bound by time or space. The scope of class rooms has increased by leaps and bounds. When it comes to learning, there is an unlimited amount of knowledge available at no cost or at economically viable price. New education system replaced chalkboards with whiteboards and Smart Boards. Notebooks and textbooks are being replaced with laptops and iPads. According to the fact provided by Wikipedia, YouTube has more than 70,00,000 educational videos. Besides, there are a lot of other educational websites sorted subject-wise. Many new educational applications are put forward in market, and their business is exploding in crores and millions.
