Technology in Education on a Shoestring

Raj Ridvan Singh, SOLS 24/7

Technology in Education on a Shoestring

In recent years, one of the main focuses of the Ministry of Education has been introducing technology in schools. But past moves or suggestions have not necessarily been successful or met with welcome. Most recently, the ministry has said that it's mulling over whether or not to allow the use of electronic gadgets in classrooms. Unsurprisingly, this has prompted both support and objection for various reasons. But today we hear from another perspective - an NGO that runs programmes teaching English and IT skills as a solution to poverty. Our guest is Raj Ridvan Singh, founder, and CEO of SOLS 24/7.
