How is technology impacting the learning landscape of India?
What role can CSR programs can play in terms of making technology accessible and effective in education? How do we engage the social sector in edtech innovations and scale-up?
What are some of the factors to ensure equity and equality that should be considered while digitizing the education system?
How can technology address the increasing drop out ratio? Do we have a few best-fit cases of technology enabling better learning?
The rapid shift to e-learning prompted by the pandemic has resurfaced long-standing issues of inequality and a digital divide in India. How can we best address this divide and create access and opportunities for the marginalised communities to catch up with the development?
There are many EdTech solutions in the market. What are the determinants of a good-fit solution? How do we ensure the solution becomes a sustainable intervention? • Experiences, learning and good-practices in technology as an enabler in classrooms and beyond the classrooms.
