|Soft Exam for IT@School
The Kerala Government has officially launched its ambitious programme to make school students computer literates. To complete its goal, the programme ‘IT @ School' envisages making computer education part of the school syllabi from eighth standard onwards. Students of over 2,800 schools in the State get the benefit of the programme.
The programme does not perceive computer education just as a subject of study but it also aims at empowering students to use computers as excellent tools for education. By the completion, over 17 lakh students will have the computer training and awareness programme as part of their curriculum.
