Education has been a vital part of our society for ages and has been shaping the society since forever. There has been a continuous evolution in the education system from gurukuls to school and now the use of technology is the most preferred and trusted way to learn.

With the advent of Ed tech we can learn whenever and wherever we want, in the first place but primary concern is the lack of student engagement in classrooms. There are various factors that contribute to this disconnect on the part of the students. With the rapid advances in technology and the prevalence of a digital culture, traditional learning simply does not click with the students.
