Kwasi Aggor: EdTech makes personalized learning possible

It is no secret that we live in a technology driven world. Technology has helped propel the modern age into an era of unparalleled progress and prosperity.

The education sector is no exception to this. According to Kwasi Aggor, who works for the EdTech industry, the global Coronavirus pandemic has accelerated the push towards getting more and more businesses onto digital platforms.

Kwasi Aggor believes that these interactive learning technologies have the power to immerse students in a fun and fulfilling learning environment.

EdTech’s capacity to support personalized learning, a curriculum tailored for a student’s individual learning journey is something that he is passionate about.

“In a traditional class of 20 students, not all would be receiving and digesting the material the same way. While some students would perceive learning as more challenging, others might simply breeze through the curriculum.”

While traditional teaching models rely on test scores and attendance percentage as markers of student success; EdTech provides instructors and parents with real-time crucial data about each student’s progress over time.

In Kwasi Aggor’s opinion, “Students need more insights than simple grades to understand and improve their performance and EdTech is equipping them with that information.”

According to him, artificial intelligence used in EdTech can play a crucial role in adaptive learning. By creating recommendations based on individual learning history, it can help students make future career choices based on data about their learning abilities and interests.

Aggor says the availability of such data also helps teachers customize the curriculum to match each student’s capability. It also makes personalized learning possible.

EdTech has the potential to reduce the amount of time teachers spend on administrative responsibilities. Software can automatically fill out forms; maintain inventories of materials, equipment and products; and even automatically order replacements.

The EdTech worker believes that the time saved could be used to improve education through more personalized learning and more direct coaching and mentoring. He believes this will enable teachers to provide tailored material and personalized feedback to their students.

He says, “EdTech will enable teachers to foster one-on-one relationships with students, encourage self-regulation and perseverance, and help students collaborate with each other.”

Kwasi Aggor thinks that EdTech software can also be used to conduct tests, assign work and submit assignments, and even assess the delivery and understanding of each and every subject as it relates to individual students.

He says, “Classrooms will become more interactive, and students will get opportunities to engage better within the domains of their choice.”

Aggor trusts that the introduction of such technology in educational institutions has drastically changed the classroom environment for the better. He has faith that education institutions will continue to expand the existing technology in the future in order to accommodate the needs of the next generation.

“Every child is special and I feel grateful to work in an industry that is committed to improving the future of education for countless students.”
