Peer Tutoring and its benefits

According to numerous studies conducted, one-on-one peer tutoring has been proven to be extremely effective for learning not only for the students but also for the tutors. Peer tutoring is considered the most cost-effective, scalable and is also an immediate means for uplifting education in India. 

Developing a culture of service among the youth is beneficial, especially considering that non-government schools have a responsibility to uplift students in the government and rural schools in the country. Those who will be delivering peer tutoring to others will be recognised for their achievements and the tutors will also gather leadership and career training experience.

The conference will conduct discussions regarding collaborative learning and peer tutoring along with a briefing on how technological resources can help with the same. 

Technology and Education

With changing times, the use of technology has become more and more evident, especially in the education sector. Although harnessing technology can boost efficiency and education results what needs to be remembered is that education is a personal and human activity.

Harnessing the power of technology to improve education administration, efficiency and results is the need of the hour and the key is to equip the technology in such a way that it facilitates, amplifies, and enhances education.
