No Ban on Mobile Phones in Karnataka’s Educational Institutions
Dr. CN Ashwatha Narayana, Karnataka's higher education minister, stated that digital learning has become an integral part of the teaching and learning process. Dr Narayana told a reporter that it is impossible to restrict electronic gadgets in colleges because students and professors are so reliant on them, especially after COVID.
At some point in our schooling, we have all written an essay on whether or not mobile phones should be allowed in schools and colleges. Because of this, the benefits and drawbacks of using electronic devices such as cell phones and laptops in class are frequently addressed and argued. COVID has allowed students to learn online for the past few years. As a result, technological devices have become increasingly integrated in the learning process. At this stage, the pros of digital devices being used for education have outweighed the cons. While the students have started to use these devices for more than just recreational purposes, the teachers have also embraced the value they add to education and the learning process.
Dr Narayana said, “Nowadays modern gadgets such as mobile, computer, laptop, tab, etc have become an integral part of the teaching-learning process.” In addition to the knowledge being readily and widely available on these devices, they have taken a load off the teacher’s backs. Traditional teaching and learning methods have dominated the Indian education system, particularly in schools and mediocre institutions. The institutes were only obliged to look into digital solutions after the lockdowns caused by COVID. It turned out to be a blessing in disguise for both students and teachers, as it introduced them to more effective techniques of imparting and gaining knowledge and education.
It is a step forward to see the education ministers of our country standing by progressive change. It will not only help students in becoming more efficient and educated, but it will also help teachers make learning more participatory and skill-based.
