Recently, HRD Minister Kapil Sibal made an announcement to introduce an innovative scheme to spread elementary education using Information Communication Technology (ICT) tools. The new scheme will be similar to the existing ICT scheme in higher education. It was reported that this scheme is to address the needs of teachers and help students to study on their own. The scheme is to focus on the development of e-contents that is to be used by students at the primary and the upper priamry level in schools for learning purposes. This will take care of the unavailability of teachers to a great extent. Additionally, separate modules would be developed for assessment and evaluation of students. Teachers' training will be a component under the proposed scheme.
