NEP 2020: Interplay of Education and Technology

The introduction of NEP 2020 is majorly focused on integrating technology into education. The system has given major importance to the overall development of students by giving them early experiences in internships, vocational courses, multilingual education, and others. This requires technological development as a major aspect of the educational bodies.

Here’s how technology plays an important role in the development of a national curriculum framework.

E-learning Implementation-

The national curriculum framework 2020 is majorly focused on the integration of technology in education. The system is encouraging e-learning programs and distance learning courses in the institutes to enable the students to access education from any place. The implementation of e-learning can be made possible with the help of a learning management system that the institutes must adopt.

The e-learning facility enables education to make education accessible to a large number of people in any part of the country. This increases the literacy rate and makes education easier with the help of internet availability and smartphone penetration. Further, it makes education affordable for the students and eliminates the barrier of physical location.

Moreover, the system enables the multi-disciplinary method of education as suggested by NEP 2020, where the students can access any course of their choice from any institute.

Implementation of Infrastructure-

The national curriculum framework of 2020 has emphasized offering advanced infrastructure and facilities to the students to make them technically advanced. The rise in digitization has increased the number of Internet businesses, automation of various organizations, and technological integrations in companies, hospitals, schools, government bodies, and others.

It is increasing the requirement for technologically skilled professionals that are capable of understanding the problems in new technologies and solving them. Hence, there is a rising demand for students to learn about these advancements from a young age, to be able to contribute to the country’s well-being in the future.

Technological Education-

The national curriculum framework is focused on offering students technical education for better opportunities in the future. This requires them to implement smart solutions like ERP tools for management and teaching–learning in the institutes.

New Methods of Teaching-

The NEP 2020 has given a major emphasis on improving the methods of teaching in all institutes. Whether it is an online classroom or a traditional lecture, the students should be given access to high-quality education and methods of learning that contribute to overall development.

 These new methods of learning include video-based teaching, interactive sessions, storytelling, debates, discussions, and various other activities that encourage the students to participate and ask questions about the subject.

Further, the national curriculum framework is focused on giving hands-on skills and experiences to the students in form of projects, assignments, and internships, at a very young age. It helps to enhance student’s learning and development of skills apart from textbook knowledge such as professionalism, communication, leadership, emotional abilities, networking, and others.

New Educational Approaches-

Increasing awareness regarding shortcomings of the traditional methods of education has given rise to the introduction of new educational approaches that are focused on the development of various skills and abilities in the students.

They include OBE, CBCS, collaborative learning, and others. These new educational approaches require the institutes to implement advanced technologies to practice these methods of education in the institutes.

For example, the outcome-based education system requires the institutes to conduct frequent examinations and evaluations to ensure that the students are on the right track to desired outcomes.


The national curriculum framework 2020 has given the main emphasis on integrating technology into education and using it to help students develop into technologically advanced individuals with 360-degree growth and experiences. Further, implementation of smart solutions and advanced technologies such as AI, machine learning, etc., in institutes help to enhance students’ knowledge and experiences.
