A new report on how digital and other technologies may overcome learning gaps and make education accessible to everyone has been released by the World Economic Forum as part of its Education 4.0 India programme.

The World Economic Forum, the United Nations Children's Education Fund (UNICEF), and YuWaah (Generation Unlimited India) collaborated to produce the Education 4.0 India report. It monitors the advancement and outcomes of the Education 4.0 India effort, which focuses on how Fourth Industrial Revolution technology might improve learning and lessen disparities in children's access to education in India. The report also looks at issues and suggests solutions that can be implemented as scalable interventions to help India's youth engage in the changing workplace.

Even while India has made great strides toward addressing some of the most pressing issues in education, it has been claimed that about 70% of class 3 students in India lack even the most basic abilities in reading and math. Storytelling, read-aloud and interactive content, flip books, and the usage of digital technologies can all be used to solve this issue and make schoolchildren's learning enjoyable and fascinating.

The most effective ways to employ digital content and online learning throughout the pandemic have shown their ability to give students anywhere access to the best learning resources, as well as allow them to learn at their own pace and receive individualized instruction and evaluation.

The report recommends creating digital communities with the aid of teachers, using personalised worksheets and movies at home. Along with a number of other suggestions, the research advises delivering daily videos, assignments, and quizzes via WhatsApp to promote target-based learning. According to the report, this may also help parents become more aware of their parenting abilities.
