If people were asked a few years back, how education will look like in the coming years? The answer was, that the way students learn will not change but yes, the focus of education will be on technology. Today, the world has changed so much that everything around us involves technology. From morning to night people are glued to their laptops or mobile phones to do something or the other. This is what our guest for today Mr. Omar Farooqui also realized and decided to disrupt education by igniting curious minds with an infusion of 21st-century technology. He noticed that students are more interested in high tech subjects rather than the conventional ones.
