We are now implementing tablets in classrooms as a replacement for textbooks, with additional features. The demand of time is technology be implemented in all the schools. In five years, we will find textbooks replaced by tablets, especially in the metros. The biggest challenge in education is teachers and their training on these technologies.

“E” must be understood to have a broad meaning if eLearning has to be made effective. It should be interpreted to mean exciting, energetic, enthusiastic, emotional, extended, excellent, and educational, in addition to “electronic”, the traditional national interpretation. This broader interpretation allows for 21st century applications.

Over the last 20 years, the approach towards education has completely taken a U-turn. The influence of IT in curriculum management has increased manifold. We have reached a situation where curriculum management and ICT go hand-in-hand.
We want to create new paradigms for learning and cultivate physical sensibilities so that children adapt and grow capable. We are also aiming at developing spiritual awareness and emotional intuition to encourage them to be in the wonder of life’s possibilities.
