ITfC conducted a workshop on ICT and Education for the Head Masters of schools run by Kristu Jayanti college and other private institutions, from across the country. Head Masters from around 100 schools across India participated, and the digital tools and the digital methods used in our work was a revelation for all of them. Some of them are in touch with us to discuss a possible program for their schools.
While almost all of ITfC’s work is with the government school system, this workshop with 100 school heads was important for two reasons. Firstly, private schools also cater to students from marginalized groups. Secondly, some elite private schools wield influence on policy and programs in education, owing to their credibility and reputation.
