IT for Change (ITfC) believes that ICTs can help to shape participatory and collaborative processes of learning as well as teacher professional development in education, and is concerned by the attempts to use ICT programs in schools to justify, without any basis, the privatisation of both curriculum and pedagogy in the Indian public education system.
ITfC undertakes research aimed at gathering evidence regarding the relative performances of different ICTs in education models. We engage with education policy makers through advocacy campaigns. We work on capacity building for educators and policy makers to promote alternative, more progressive, ICT in education models. We work on demonstration projects which show the appropriateness of such alternative models for the Indian public education system.
