Data is a precious thing and will last longer than the systems themselves.” ? Tim Berners Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web. When Berners - Lee talked about data, he wo uldn’t have imagined it growing to a gigantic size encompassing all spheres of life. Think of Big Data once and you’ll understand what we are talking about. From retail marketing to cloud computing, from improved patient outcomes to enhanced teaching learn ing processes, Big Data has a major role to play in every sector. Big Data in education could be leveraged to enhance creativity, potential, and problem solving ability among students. It can also open up a wide array of possibilities for students and teac hers by freeing their minds, and setting them to do bigger things ? and things that matter ? rather than sticking to a standardized pattern of education. Imagine a world, where teachers can not only analyze students’ answer given in exam sheets to discover their learning abilities but also understand why do some of their students are not able to grasp the concepts clearly and why do they give wrong answers. Imagine a world in which the lecturer can analyze how their students use the information given in tex tbooks or through Internet and accordingly give the pointers and are able in bestowing tailor - made lectures to inspire and energize students. A pattern of wrong answers is no longer just a bad grade; teachers can get clues to why students picked the wrong answer. It has been promised for a long time that technology will change education for better ? thus more affordable and accessible. The promise of educational technology is more important in Indian context because we have an enormous lack of access to hig h quality education due to a number of seemingly unbeatable challenges. Also, the cost of educating one of the world’s greatest populations has been steadily increasing. The educational technology promises to give the same platform for everyone. Even the r ural children expect that technology would make education affordable and accessible for them. In education, digital learning technologies can help educators and researchers gain valuable insight into how to improve and pe rsonalize learning for students .
