Digital technology vital to promote education


Our Correspondent


The Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) President Sardar Masood Khan has said that the dream of development and prosperity of the liberated territory cannot materialize until and unless the education system in the state is restructured in accordance with modern technology.
“It is essential to making education being imparted to the new generation job market-oriented and the curriculum compatible to the emerging trends in the world,” the president said while addressing a function held here on Saturday to unveil a gigantic education program under the auspices of an international education technology company “Coded Minds”.
He said that the use of digital technology has become inevitable to bring about a revolution in the education sector, while technologies like artificial intelligence, internet of things, robotics, blockchain and cloud computing are now in the hands of the youth. The AJK President, however, stressed the use of these new technologies for the promotion of education and other positive purposes.
He maintained that the concept of public-private partnership is very charming, but it is easy to implement it.
