In the Digital Literacy for Children initiative, it’s our goal to make the children ready for a digitally empowered society and knowledge economy through our curriculum.
In today’s technological age, just being able to read and write is not enough. It is very important for children to be digitally literate to be ready for the future.
We upgraded our curriculum to suit the mobile learing. Whether it is online or offline mode, the children show lot of interest to do projects using the software tools they learn.
