Promotion of Information and Communication Technology systems in school and adult education

ICT can potentially make significant difference in improving the quality of education. The National Policy of ICT in School Education envisions and provides for the development of a holistic framework of ICT support in the school system. While there have several ways in which ICT in schools are being implemented, we need to optimally use and leverage technology to achieve quality and efficiency in all of the interventions. Under this theme, we need to find solutions on how best technology can be leveraged for both school and adult education and share best practices, if any.

• What are the usual problems faced by schools while implementing ICT integration?
• Are they viable solutions in dealing with general issues?
• What are the different experiences of States in this regard?
• What are the ways in which technology can be leveraged for both school and adult education and share best practices, if any.

We definitely need to engage students more efficiently by including ICT but implementing just new ideas will not take us anywhere. We need to bridge the gap between academia and industry and this can be done sustainably only when both the stakeholders benefit and not through incentives. a simple moden based on patenting can drive the whole movement forward which could change the way education happens in our country. Taking a few steps now will change ebverthing within three years.

The concept of ICT integration in school and adult education is a very good and learner centric approach. however there are two things I would like to point out: i) accessibility of such technology:ICT enabled learning is not cost effective and also there is lack of good internet facility and connectivity. ii. content should be user friendly and developed in a manner so that it caters to need of even the weakest learner.

Practicall i do not thing technology must be pushed so hard till class 8 clasical way of learning is good with some practical observatio not digitaly

After 8 some study digitization must occurs ex laws of physics bonding of molecues etc

After inter digitization may be a good option but practicals mus also be done with real strict rules

And most imp motivation is requred depending upon the mentality of an individual so consultant must be appointed in order to guide every student

I think we are pushing technology too hard in the schools. There are too many vendors, products and solutions chasing teachers. Also most are in the areas of readymade content and smoother administration. Very few are in the areas of fundamentally transforming teaching in classrooms. I foresee education products build around Internet of Things to make a huge difference in classrooms. Products that will make teachers and students do things, rather than just be passive consumers in classrooms.

Yes, whatapps, facebook etc. can be used in productive ways. But motivation is the key.

Once we have infra and an ICT-enabled population, we can expect far higher success with various e-governance initiatives. At the moment, both are way below required levels, in my opinion.
