IT for Change & BES College of Education are working collaboratively and running this course for D.El.Ed students. This course is designed on the NCF themes of “Connecting and Learning” and “Creating and Learning”. This course discusses how you can use Information and Communication Technologies (henceforth ICT) for your own professional development as well as classroom teaching and will introduce different digital methods that will support self learning and peer learning. The coursework includes a theoretical component that focuses on understanding the way different digital processes work. You will learn about the history of ICT and the place of digital ICT in this evolution of ICT. You will also learn how to use ICT ethically and to promote greater participation and inclusion.

The course also includes a practice component that focuses on the learning of different ICT skills. You will become familiar with different components of the ICT infrastructure in your lab. You will be introduced to the Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) and Open Educational Resources (OER). You will learn how to connect to the internet, and see the internet as a ‘global digital library’ from which you can search and access resources for your own learning. You will learn to create your own ‘personal digital library’ by meaningfully organizing the resources accessed, as well as created by you.
