ICT and education in India
Technology is becoming central point in our society. Technology is all around us. Promotions are being made and new innovations are being exposed every day in field of information and communication technology (ICT). ICT had a main influence on our school systems. ICT empowers all students to master new subjects via rich connections with resources outside of classroom walls just as geographically distributed labours create, share and master knowledge. Technology is impacting the young mind to a great range. India, an effective ICT powered nation, had always placed a lot of intonation on the use of ICT, not only for good governance but also in various sectors of the economy such as health, agriculture and education etc. Education, undoubtedly, is one of the main investments in building human capital in a country. India’s need for education is diversified and wide-ranging. It requires not only basic education but also complete continuing education programmes to upgrade the skills in line with development necessities and technological improvements. Higher education organizations have also exploited the possibility of new information and communication technologies to improve new approaches to distance education, in business, management and computing.
