Research in teaching, learning, pedagogy and technology has been undergoing dramatic transformations over the years. Technology has made deep inroads into the field of education for the past one decade thanks to many new initiatives by educators which include digitization, active learning, interactive learning, flipped learning, experiential learning, research-informed teaching & learning,
According to academic research, the contemporary educational landscape is largely relying on improved and innovative curriculum which is based on humanist-developmental model of early education that focuses on development of new knowledge, new methods, novelty in teaching/learning and focus on research. Social interactions, a close-coordination with parents, improved roles for educators and adoption of technology-based teaching are the other aspects to be taken into account, here in order to enhance the learning experience of the cohorts.
Some of the innovative instructional tools used today are: Real-world learning, Class outside the classroom, audio-visual tools, IT-enabled teaching and learning, brain-storming sessions, role-play, peer-learning, group learning and a host of other tools are invariably used by the global academic community, today.
