Community Digital Platform for Children's Resource Centre's (CRC)

“Covid 19 lockdown first time brought our attention to the dangers of digital divide which would further exclude the poor children from the mainstream educational process. Initially it was thought of as creating access to online teaching. We least realized that the digital domain creeping into the physical and face-to-face learning space of the CRCs would severely alter the learning environment of the children. CRCs have now necessarily become blended learning spaces that throw several challenges not only for children but for the facilitators, creative leads and the programme designers. It has set in motion an iterative process that deserves serious attention” Prof. T Chinnaraj Joseph Jaikumar, CEO.
