He was treated as untouchable and all the others like him were segregated and were given little attention or help by teachers. He described a short struggling part of his life later in his writings as "No peon, No water". He is also known as a freedom fighter as he supported the rights of women and labor and campaigned against the act of untouchability. 

Ambedkar was a strong man and tried to revolt against the injustice done to the people, making himself believe to transform India into a better being. In his childhood, he suffered bitter caste humiliation and became the first Minister of Law in free India and then laid a great prominence on education. He was awarded a Bharat Ratna and was later respected and honored by everyone.

He believed in himself and said, "Cultivation of mind should be the ultimate aim of human existence”. Being a great thinker, he wanted all Indians to be liberal, and to be equally treated. He focused on Education and mostly where it was needed the most, agitation and organization.

The Digital Education Revolution

Technology has begun to infiltrate the education process. The education system is now at the cusp of Education 4.0, which aligns itself with Industry 4.0. The focus has now shifted to smart technology, artificial intelligence and robotics. Therefore, students should be taught about these cyber-physical systems to prepare them for the evolving industries. The cyber-physical systems are integrated into various industries, and are inevitably affecting the required skills for employees. 



Prof. Shipra Pandey, 

 Associate Professor – JAGSoM,

Vijaybhoomi University


According to World Economic Forum report of 2016 “More than a third of the desired core skill sets of most occupations will be comprised of skills that are not yet considered crucial to the job today” by 2020. Universities are required in current scenario to evolve as technology is advancing and prepare the students for their future. This can be done by encouraging the remote learning using digital means, and also having face-to-face interaction to apply practical skills.

The COVID-19 pandemic has taught students how to adapt quickly to new situations. The adoption of digital technologies in the pandemic has increased exponentially in education industry which has transformed the entire traditional education processes. This can be seen in popular learning platforms like Coursera, Udemy, to name a few. They have completely made learning of new skills such as MS Word, MS Excel more convenient and easy. The video conferencing applications like Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Webex, have provided the medium to deliver quality education to students. Hence, Distance Learning or E- Learning has become possible due to digitalization.

The three segments which are crucial to strengthen digitalization are 1) digital infrastructure as a utility to every citizen; 2) governance and services on demand; 3) digital empowerment of citizen. However, there are various challenges along with the benefits which digitalization provides in education industry. The digital addiction like game addiction, social media addiction and internet addiction has become a very common issue among young generation. The thinking skill of the children are hampered and the creativity and innovation is missing from children. Since, every information is available on web, so not every person has the right information. It has changed into a tranquil security danger. The radiation released from these devices has harmful impact on one’s body. Therefor, there needs to be a balance between face to face interaction and E-learning to have a healthy lifestyle. It is necessary to that we don’t become slave of this digitalization rather use it in a more efficient and productive way.

JAGSOM (Jagdish Sheth School of Management) which is part of Vijaybhoomi University focuses to develop ‘T’ shaped professionals aligned with that of “Industry 4.0”. At Vijaybhoomi University, we believe education should encourage innovation, social responsibility and cognitive flexibility. We strongly emphasize decoding the knowledge, skills, values, beliefs, and abilities that are required to prepare the young generation for future. The curriculum is designed in such a way that helps students to have multidisciplinary and liberal education. Vijaybhoomi university is the first in the country to successfully blend the liberal framework into professional streams by making it one of its kind “Liberal Professional University”.
