Singh, Mayengbam Nandakishwor
Higher Education for the Future, v8 n1 p20-30 Jan 2021
Technology has become an integral part of human life, and it has made inroads in the sphere of education. Digital technology is largely reshaping the nature of learning in classroom. Digital classroom is one clear manifestation of this emerging trend. There is a burgeoning academic culture of digital classroom today. It is increasingly incomprehensible for the larger academic community to quench their thirst for knowledge without computer technology. The blending of traditional classroom and digital classroom becomes almost imminent. But it is also equally important to understand the inherent merits and demerits of digital classroom. Use of computer technology can enhance the quality of education, but technology alone cannot be sufficient. The basic challenges lie in entrenching the proper use of benefits provided by digital technology. This article seeks to examine the pros and cons of digital classroom along with the major challenges it poses. The methodology applied for this study is explanatory approach. A theoretical-based research, coupled with practical experiences, through critical analysis of existing literatures on digital classroom is carried out.
