The Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board (GSHSEB) has come up with a pilot drive to train 600 teachers in the state of Gujarat. The aim of the initiative was to improve the quality of education and introduce advanced computerised teaching methods in classroom teaching. Under the project, instead of school principals who used to receive such training so far, teachers will undergo classroom reform training.
Known as the 'ICT Blended Design Learning Education Project', the initiative will be implemented during the duration of November 22-27, on experimental basis in 60 schools of three districts — Vadodara, Anand and Surat. From each district, 200 teachers teaching in 9th to 12th standard classrooms have been selected for training which will be conducted in three phases.
