Information Communication Technology (ICT) is one of the rapidly changing area in domain of learning. The main purpose of introducing ICT in schools is to help the students to make use of different ICT tools in enhancing their learning. The ICT education helps the students to face the challenges of 21st century and attain the millennium developmental goals in education. ICT also helps in reducing the digital divide among the rural and urban students.
As per the UNESCO “technology can be a powerful education multiplier, but we must know how to use it. It is not enough to install technology into classrooms- it must be integrated into learning. Nothing can be substitute for a good teacher. It is not technology itself that empowers people- empowerment comes from skills and knowledge”.
The teachers have become more critical than ever- the challenge is how to enable teachers not only to overcome the technology barriers but also to empower them to integrate appropriate technology into the teaching and learning process.
This handbook contains the required content in using the different tools and use them in other subjects i.e. Mathematics, Science, Social Science and languages.
The SCERT, A.P, Hyderabad appreciates the efforts of the content experts and
other team members in developing this ICT handbook. We also acknowledge the C-DAC, Hyderabad for sharing their content related to software security in the preparation of this handbook.
We hope, the teacher may find this handbook useful and transact it in the classroom to enhance the learning levels of the students and also infuse confidence among them as they were not left behind in using technology on par with other students who are studying in corporate schools.Download ICT Teacher's Hand Books
