The world is growing fast. Today, one can witness many positive advancements because of immense technological growth and development. Technology plays a vital role in the lives of the urban population. Despite technological progress, people living in rural areas do not have access to quality education and lack proper healthcare facilities. They are poor, unemployed, and do not have any access to it.
It is important to understand how technology can be harnessed to bring about a significant positive change in society.
Harnessing Technology to ensure quality education for all
The Government’s Digital India initiative aims to improve internet accessibility among the rural population by linking rural areas with high-speed internet. Additionally, the rural population should be given access to digital devices, and teachers should be trained to deliver online lectures. Moreover, to address the shortage of qualified teachers in remote areas these lectures can be broadcasted.
Harnessing Technology to Improve India’s rural healthcare
The rural areas lack proper healthcare facilities and have limited resources. Doctors can find out life-saving trends, can make quick decisions, and prevent or stop the outbreak of diseases through technologies like artificial intelligence and data analysis.
Harnessing Technology for the Benefit of Farmers
Tech-enabled farming can be a boon to farmers as it increases productivity and decreases the cost and labor, and saves time. Sensors can monitor the temperature, humidity, amount of moisture in the soil, and weather conditions. Therefore, farmers should be educated on the latest technologies.
Technology is a potent tool that can resolve several issues. Corporations should collaborate with Non-Profit Organizations to increase the outreach and scalability of technology to the underprivileged sections of society.
