Teachers Empowerment Program

About The Project

The Indian education segment has seen a noticeable increase in its standards, advancement, and innovations in recent years. Schools have begun to adopt modern teaching methods through interactive intelligent boards, projectors, and smart notebooks, etc. And we cannot deny, these technological updates make the education system digital thereby making it interactive and easier. However, the inadequacy of skills among the teachers of the rural areas to operate digital platforms is a key factor affecting the advancement of digital education. As the teachers lack the necessary training to use digital platforms, they are averse to adopt these educational methods.

To address this important challenge DXC Technology through its sustainability initiatives is implementing Rural Teacher Empowerment Program across India in partnership with ICT Academy. This program aims to prepare rural schoolteachers for the new digital journey by helping them to change their teaching style and make the virtual classroom a great learning environment.
