Madhya Pradesh Riding High on Learning Wave

Madhya Pradesh, the second largest Indian State, has always been a tourists’ delight for its pre-historic paintings, temples and forts. Of late, it has emerged as one of the educational hubs in the country and now boasts of having institutes of excellence like the IIT and the IIM.
Today, the state has a robust educational infrastructure that caters to the needs of all segments. Apart from thousands of schools, the state has more than 400 colleges that impart engineering, management and other courses in the higher education sector.
The government of the state has built a strong infrastructure to facilitate easy and smart learning amongst its students through the use of various modern technologies. With a huge number of students taking up information technology (IT) related programmes, more and more colleges offering courses in the segment are coming up. IT has also been introduced in the school syllabus.
The commercial city of the state, Indore, has always been a focus area for the government to improve educational facilities. And this is perhaps, one reason that the IIT and the IIM has been set up in the city, where quite a good number of IT companies have their operations. This issue of the digitalLearning magazine is devoted to the education sector in MP as a whole, and Indore in particular. To give an added thrust and explore more of it, we decided to organise a State Education Summit on December 19 at Indore.
The summit will see eminent personalities in the education sector, thinktanks, academicians, policy makers, educational institutions’ heads and students, and others discussing the various issues, challenges and best practices in the education sector. We have also tried to incorporate the views of all such stakeholders in the form of interviews, write-ups and analysis that reflect different aspects of
the sector.
Last month, we organised India’s biggest 8th eINDIA 2102 event at Hyderabad where we had a dedicated track on education, eINDIA Education Summit, wherein a host of national and international speakers shared their views on different aspects of the education sector. Encouraged by the responses from the stakeholders in the domain, we have decided to fan out our activities across the country.
The State Education Summit is just another step in this direction. We have planned to usher in the coming year with more such events  in the field of governance, health and education to keep you engaged, updated and informed.
