Isn’t it easy and fun to learn subjects while you are on the go? The students and faculty of IITB certainly think so and as a first step, they have started a new podcast series, ‘Technology, Together’. The series offers valuable insights on how technology can be made more inclusive and equitable.

It is a bimonthly podcast series developed by a group of students under the guidance of Prof. Bidisha Chaudhari, Coordinator, MSc Digital Society. Tejas Kotha, iMTech, Final year student heads this initiative along with Srravya C, Research Assistant in MINRO, Alumnus of MSc Digital Society Program and Swati Ganeshan , Research Assistant in MINRO.

It is proven that educational experiences that are active, engaging and student-owned lead to a deeper learning. IIIT Bangalore has always stood by this dictum and enabled latest learning experiences.

‘Technology, Together’ dives headfirst into the complex world of technology. This series covers the entire gamut of assistive technologies, 5G, or digital privacy.
