Role of Ed-Tech to Boost Student Engagement

Student engagement has been always a topic of key importance to educators. Getting the attention of students in the course of action includes different approaches such as intellectual, emotional, social, behavioural etc. Today, students’ engagement is considered to be very difficult as it is hard to engage students in the conventional learning process when they have the facility of instantaneous gratification via technology which is very easily accessible. Hence, technology is the best solution to lead and capture students’ attention by several educational & technical engagement platforms. In today’s digital age, the exact implication of student engagement includes the ways in which students are occupied in the course of action by using technology to get the most from digital and technical solutions available in the market. Ed Tech in student engagement helps to steer students to gain knowledge, partake in class activities, work efficiently, and attain the very best in the academics as well.


Ed Tech can be useful in engaging students by:


  • Teaching platforms that allow students’ ease of use on any device
  • Managing online assessments, without the pressure of conventional exams
  • Maintaining real-time attendance using cloud support
  • Availability of online study material (books, videos, blogs)
  • Integrating technology into the classrooms for students to become fervent about their own learning paradigms
  • Offering bespoke-digitalized opinions based on individual student performance
  • Providing real-time and long-term data about student performances to teachers. This helps the educators to frame their teaching methodologies as per the data received
  • Including roundtable discussions, videos and custom-made content help to assist in engrossing students in studies


When it comes to planning an educational system of personalised and engaging learning experiences, technology plays a very imperative role. Adaptive learning models, as well as mobile-enabled courses and learning pathways could help to bring about an innovative revolution in the ed-tech industry to increase student engagement. In the present educational scenario in our society, technology is becoming the very core of educational circle and hence, the level of student engagement is directly proportional to the level of integration of technology into the classrooms as a part of daily teachings.


To Sum Up:


Technology has an almost negligible effect on student engagement when there is no use in the right perspective or in an effectual technique that stirs and supports students to crave for learning more and evolve collaboratively. So, the bottom line is that technology must be used as a contrivance to furnish students with an opportunity to become more skilled through engaging and applicable educational approaches than the usual conventional methods.
