Andhra Pradesh Schools Gain Access to E-education
Oracle Education Foundation (OEF) has signed a MoU with Institute for Electronic Governance (IEG), a non-profit organization under the government of Andhra Pradesh. Through this link-up, 500 government schools and over 25,000 students and teachers will gain access to the ThinkQuest online learning platform over the next two years.
ThinkQuest is a protected, online learning platform that enables teachers to integrate learning projects into their classroom curriculum and students to develop critical 21st century skills, including creativity, communication, teamwork, and technology skills.
In the first phase of the rollout, IEG and OEF will train 120 teachers from 60 schools on the ThinkQuest platform and instruct them how to best integrate 21st century skills instruction and project learning into their curricula.
ThinkQuest supports the National Curriculum Framework (NCF 2005) of the National Council for Educational Research and Training (NCERT) in its objective to adopt project learning in classrooms across the country.
First launched in India in 2004, ThinkQuest currently supports over 146,000 students and teachers in 1,100 schools across the country, including Kendriya Vidyalayas, Navodaya Vidyalayas, DPS, DAV, and other schools.
