CAG slams Delhi government for poor state of edu affairs 11.3.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
Poor planning, continuing vacancies, and delay in the release of funds and their utilisation by the Delhi government have become a hurdle in the implementation of Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009, in the national Capital, apex auditor Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) observed in its report on Friday. The CAG stated that the incumbent government in the Capital failed to complete the mandatory household survey for a database of all children from their birth till 14 years of age. "In the absence of such crucial data, it was not possible for the government to ensure enrolment of every child in the age group of 6-14 years in school," stated the report, covering a period of 2010-16.

Using technology to bridge gaps 22.2.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
In today's technology-driven world, the learning environment doesn't have to be confined to a place. Perhaps, a better way to think of the 21st century learning environment is one that is conducive to better learning. Increased access to digital technologies is enabling personalised learning pathways, especially for those students who need additional support to learn. This helps remove learning barriers and provides numerous choices that matches a student's needs and skill level. Many years ago, special classes were created for students with special needs or learning disabilities. Educators felt that they could teach these students separately in smaller groups and help them catch up. However, the reality is that students in segregated specialeducation classes were lagging behind. To bridge the gap, technology was leveraged to help students with special needs. Over a period of time, general education classrooms grew to include diverse set of students. Teachers now realise the value of considering each ...
