Scope of Technology Between High School and College

Intermediate Education is a two-year period of education between high school and college. In other words, you have passed out of high school but before enrolling as an undergraduate in a college, you will have to complete two more years of schooling. These two years are referred to as Class XI & XII or as Plus two in different parts of the country. Final exams are held at the end of each academic year and results are published in websites such as say TS Inter Results 2020 in the case of Telangana state. It is mandatory to hold a higher secondary certificate to be eligible for undergraduate and bachelor’s degrees. 

The Impact of Technology in Intermediate Education 

Even with technology being so advanced, there is nothing much to write home about it during the two years of Intermediate education. The curriculum and testing patterns follow the centuries-old tradition. For all the streams, final pen and paper exams will be conducted at the end of the academic year to select the students who are qualified for higher education. The only place where you see some sort of technology used is when the results are published online. A quick google search such as Kerala Plus Two Result 2020 will immediately fetch you the results. That’s about it. 

But the possibilities of technology in the field are aplenty. Online classes can be conducted for students during difficult times such as the current lockdown periods due to COVID-19. Teachers can directly connect to students to clear their doubts and make the concepts clear. Artificial Intelligence can be used to demonstrate theories in real-time. Smart rooms can be utilized to create curiosity in the students’ minds that can lead to innovative solutions. Exams can be changed into an online mode which minimizes the errors in valuation and quicker publishing of results. 

Technology in education does not mean using electronic gadgets only. Anything that revolutionizes the traditional form of teaching to make it an experience for the students can be treated as technology. The educational sector in the southern state of Kerala is a reference point for the entire country in this aspect. 

Example Set by Kerala 

The state of Kerala in the southern part of India has always remained unique from the rest of the country in many ways for the better part of the last decades. It is known for the highest literacy rate among all states and was also declared the first fully literate state in the country about a decade back. Kerala is always on the lookout for new ways of improving its school education system. The state has been the early adopters of many new ideas of the NCERT (National Council of Educational Research and Training). It was one of the primary adopters of online results publishing in sites such as Kerala Plus Two Result 2020. The state even experimented with the DPEP (District Primary Education Programme), though there was opposition from various quarters, and even made the decision to take it beyond primary classes. The state was the first in the country to move from the traditional behaviorist way of teaching to a social constructivist paradigm. During exams, instead of asking direct questions that could be answered only through memorizing the lessons, indirect questions and open-ended questions were included. This made the student think and apply the learned concepts before answering, and there were no right or wrong answers which became mostly subjective and needed substantiation from the student’s part. The latest technology has also found its way into the curriculum in the form of online classes, smart rooms, video-assisted teaching, etc. A CCE (Comprehensive and Continuous Evaluation) system was introduced along with this, which aimed at looking into the overall personality of the student rather than depending upon a single final examination for qualification. The CBSE has also taken notice of the system and has started adopting it in a more flexible manner. 

The Latest Entrant 

The new state of Telangana is the latest entrant in the educational field. Telangana Board of Secondary Education formed in May 2016 is overseeing the developments in the state. The board offers various courses for the students to prepare them for university. Exam results are published online in TS inter Results 2020 for this year. The board has taken the need for changes in the field very seriously and has adopted the latest technology making a well-structured curriculum that can give a comprehensive learning experience to the students. It is high time others follow suit.
