ICT Education in K-12 Schools:

The INDIA is experiencing a crisis in education. A third of students in K-12 educational systems do not finish high school. An inadequate fraction of those who do are entering Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields. 

Many of our nation’s scientists, technical workers, engineers and mathematicians are nearing retirement. We need to replace them in our workforce, and we need to significantly expand our STEM workforce to be competitive in global innovation, information and knowledge economies.

ICT fields are generally STEM fields. How do we do a better job exposing students to ICT and attracting them into ICT academic careers in K-12 education? K-12 students are often savvy users of ICT at early ages. How do we better integrate ICT into K-12 teaching and learning experiences to keep their attention, appeal to their learning styles and keep them in school? How can we build better ICT pathways from K-12 systems into colleges and universities? These are among the issues of ICT education in K-12 schools.
