Lakshmi vs Saraswati
Edutech can be a force for good – or for evil !
Today’s well-funded startups like Byju’s which target school students have focussed on maximising profits, by providing a digital alternative to tuition classes and boring classroom teachers, rather than focus on inspiring a desire to learn in students .
Khan Academy and online MOOCs were originally started with the aim of making high quality educational resources freely available to all.
What a farce this has become – where everything we do is tainted by the desire to make money !
We are selling out our next generation in the pursuit of short-term profits.
