The Ministry of Human Resource Development has set of new guidelines on digital education. The ministry recommends limiting screen time to 30 minutes every alternate day for pre-primary children. It recommends a maximum of four sessions of 30-45 minutes each per day for the oldest students in Classes 9 to 12.

The 20-page guidebook titled Pragyata (Plan, Review, Arrange, Guide, Yak(talk), Assign, Track, Appreciate) on digital education for schools, states, parents and students is based on a discussion held on June 8 and the guidelines have been framed by the ministry’s Department of School Education and Literacy.

It also recommends adopting the alternative academic calendar developed by the National Council of Educational Research and Training, or NCERT. It also tells states to run “educational content through state-specific tv, radio and other means of communication”.
