The collective efforts of the technological community have brought forth innovations which can have a significant and everlasting effect on the education scene in India. The myriad resources that are available and still being churned out have positioned the country’s educational sector on par with global technological standards. While increase in the number of educational services have meant that the resources exist, concerted efforts in bringing them together into one channel still needs to be addressed.
The academic community of today is flooded with a maze of information. However, the end users are not able to make adequate use of the vast resource base since these are scattered and quite often not available when they are most needed. Exciting new developments have left the community in want of a guide to direct them through the jumble and provide them with a one-stop-solution to their requirements. The need of the hour is to untangle and simplify the massive maze and bring to the users a demystified version of the great technology and education mammoth.
With the dawn of the digital age, we bring our readers and other end users with a resource that will serve the very purpose that these technologies have been seeking to address – reaching out to the education community.
The Information and Communication Technology Resource Guide 2009-10 is our first attempt to bring a handy Users Guide for all their requirements in technology and education. From administrative management solutions to 3D content modules for interactive classroom needs, the Resource Guide breaks the contact and information barriers, and takes our readers through a wide array of resources and services.
If you’ve been on a wild goose chase, digitalLEARNING provides you a collation of various service providers in the field of Information and Communication Technology in Education.
With this resource guide, we kick start our endeavour of making an assortment of ready to use education database for all major regions in India. We begin the process of scanning through the resources available in different states, thereby bringing ICT closer to the teeming population in smaller towns and metros, offering them the familiarity of education technology.
The Resource Guide celebrates the efforts, the success and the innovations of the educational entrepreneurs in India and brings a compilation for the benefit of the diverse user groups
