Bengaluru: The penetration of smartphone is expanding at a faster rate.  Smartphone-based learning content are becoming popular among K-12 students.  BYJU’s, India’s largest ed-tech company and the creator of the largest K-12 app in the country announced the findings of the ‘Impact of smartphone-based learning content on K-12 students’ study today. The findings highlight how smartphone-based learning is helping children learn on their own, offering them a new perspective to understand tough concepts and enabling them to finish their lessons faster.

The study gathered interesting feedback from parents on their children’s performance. Nearly, 97% of students said that they finished the lessons much faster when they learn via technology. Interestingly, 82% parents said that they did not have to ask their children to use the app. Children took the initiative to learn and take tests/quizzes on their own on the app. Further, 93% parents reported an overall increase in their child’s grades after using the app.

India has over 260 million school going children. The increased adoption of smartphones across the country has brought in a lot of changes in education sector in the recent years. Smartphones are now increasingly being used as ‘learning devices’ by students across different grades and geographies. Technology is moulding the way children of different age groups learn. It has charted out a whole new way of learning for the younger generations.

Pravin Prakash, Co-founder, BYJU’s said, “Our study reveals how technology can make a big impact in making learning more engaging for students. Use of technology in education introduces a whole new dimension to the way children learn and are taught. We have seen some great growth stories of students who have been using our app. The fact that parents are telling us how the sense of self-study is getting imbibed in their child because of learning via technology is a great testament to the quality of our products. Today, a lot of students across grades increasingly understand the benefit of learning the basics of every concept as opposed to just memorizing before the exam.”

Pravin further added, “In India, the real impact of technology in education is yet to be realized. It is very encouraging to see students from across the nation using our app – especially from tier II and III cities. This is a great inspiration for us to create products that can address the need for personalized learning in remote locations of the country. Our passionate teams are continuously working towards creating learning products that reach more students and help them learn better.”
