  • Manish, This is a well researched presentation...thanks for sharing it. At the ground level we need more and more teachers who are trained to use technology in the class-room. Or else Most of the investments done by the Public schools like DPS etc. does not yield the desired results... what i see is that students are media ready but the teachers are not :-( . warm regards. Ashish
