Dr. Shantikumar V. Nair, Dean of Research, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham and Director, Amrita Centre for Nanosciences and Molecular Medicine, was one of the elite panelists at the India Today TV Education Round Table on the topic ‘Digital Divide: The Online Vs Offline Education.’
The discussion focussed on the theme ‘The New Normal for Education’. There always has been a divide between the rich and the poor even for something as basic as education. Also, with the covid pandemic, the situation has been worse. Education has moved online but for those who cannot afford this medium, it is becoming real stress leading to some even contemplating suicide.
