Edutainment platform for primary schools in Kerala
Thiruvananthapuram, Oct 9 (IANS) Close to 1.5 million students studying in Classes 1 to 4 in Kerala can now enhance their learning ability with the introduction of a new textbook which integrates even games through meaningful learning situations.
The new textbook, named ‘Kalipetty’ (which means Playbox), has been developed in a scientific manner and is expected to simplify mathematics and other subjects.
The Kerala education department has introduced New Information Communication Technology (ICT) textbooks for primary classes from 1 to 4 through its IT@school project.
For differently abled students, who require special attention, ‘Kalipetty’ also has specific content which would help them overcome many of their limitations and learn ICT education.
This new learning solution has been developed by a committee headed by K. Anvar Sadath, Executive Director of IT@School.
“The textbooks for schools will be given from November onwards and will have versions in English, Tamil and Kannada,” said Sadath.
