Conference highlights latest trends in education technology
Next Education has been using Amazon Web Services (AWS) since 2008 across many of its products including the Next Learning Programme (NLP). A cloud-based smart platform, NLP is a powerful combination of Enterprise Resource Planning and Learning Management System software, which can meet the administrative and academic needs of a school ecosystem. The integrated platform connects all processes, departments and stakeholders, reducing manual and repetitive work. By conducting the conferences across the cities, Next Education endeavors to reach out to schools across the country.
Commenting on the upcoming conferences, Beas Dev Ralhan, CEO & Co-founder of Next Education said, “The typical classrooms in schools of tier 2 and tier 3 cities in India still force students to sit through hour-long teacher monologues. There is a dire need for tech intervention in these regions. Next Education and AWS share a similar vision of empowering technology to enhance the quality, affordability and accessibility of education for teachers, students and institutions. Therefore, by conducting these seminars, we can help EdTech grow and scale rapidly in Indian schools, and provide learning and teaching resources to even the remotest areas of the country.”
The ‘EdTech Solutions for 21st Century Schools’ conference focused on various points. Special sessions on AWS’s range of cloud-based services, ERP software, Learning Management System and the AI-powered adaptive learning technology developed by Next Education was discussed as well.
