Maharashtra –The land of Shri Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, with its rich historic and cultural past, is also known for its good educational infrastructure.

Technology is a tool to add value and make education more effective. In a scenario where there is a huge transformation in the education sector with the rapid technological advancements, we are gradually transitioning from Education 4.0 to Education 5.0. ArdorComm Media Group, being one of the growing media startups in India, is here to explore the possibilities of innovation in education, the future trends, and the existing scenario to propel necessary discussions between major education, tech, and government stakeholders.
Chandan Anand, Founder, CEO & Group Editor of ArdorComm Media Group, emphasized saying, ‘’The goal of Education 5.0 is to transform the current educational system into one that is centered on action and outcomes. Despite repeated attempts to offer proper training, evaluation, and related assistance, the actual figures for employable graduates each year are alarming. As a result, the gap between industry demands versus employable-skilled human capital continues to widen. The transformation shift from Education 4.0 to Education 5.0 is about co-creating the socio-digital ecosystem which could ease the dynamics of teaching-learning-skilling-employing youth (Gen-Z & Millennials).”
