Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan has called for the development of high quality curricula that can be provided through technology. The Minister suggested that technology could also be set up for objective evaluation. The remarks were made at a meeting to review progress under the National Educational Technology Forum (NETF) and the National Digital Educational Architecture (NDEAR).
“Technology should be used to ensure accessible, affordable and quality education for all. We need to create a high quality curriculum that can be provided through technology, ”said the Minister of Education.
NETF will be NDEAR’s pioneering organization. It will serve as a blueprint for building a unified national digital infrastructure to strengthen and catalyze the entire education ecosystem.
NDEAR adopts an ‘open digital ecosystem’ approach, where a set of principles, standards, specifications, building blocks and guidelines aims to enable different entities to form components of the digital learning ecosystem.
The minister added that NETF and NDEAR would provide the necessary institutional governance and bring more accountability to the system. He said a working group comprising CBSE, AICTE, UGC, NCTE and NCERT would work on a roadmap for NDEAR and NETF.
