Kollam (Ker): A national mission on Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to link all schools in the country through an IT-enabled platform is on the anvil.
The platform will provide an opportunity for students and teachers to share knowledge and improve skills using Learner Centric Methodology, Union Secondary Education Joint Secretary Radha Chauhan said.
She stated this during a panel discussion organised as part of the 60th birthday celebrations of Mata Amritamandamayi at her ahsram at Vallikkavu near here.
"Apart from creating a better governance system for the schools, we are aiming to deliver quality education to all students through the National Mission," she said through video-conferencing.
The government was also considering a proposal to provide a tablet or a similar device to all students in the higher secondary education level to technologically equip them and the teachers, she said.
Reghu Raman, Director of Amrita University’s Centre for Research in Advanced Technologies for Education (CREATE), said Amrita had developed a unique E-Learning system, A-VIEW (Amrita Virtual Interactive e-Learning World), which is cutting-edge video conferencing software, customised explicitly for Universities.
