Views: 140

The international conference of E-9 countries on ICT for Literacy, which was recently concluded in New Delhi recognises illiteracy as one of the key impediments to development and empowerment of the people.

The Planning Commission has laid emphasis on increased use of IT and ICT. The role of the private sector is considered important not only in implementing the computer-aided learning under Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, but also in isolated efforts made by groups and individuals where a number of children as well as adults would get the benefit of literacy programmes. The E-9 countries are Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nigeria, Egypt, Brazil, Indonesia, Mexico, China and India.
