Environmental Education in India: Powered by Ubiquitous Technologies

A systemic View to The use of Technologies to Support and Promote Environmental Education in India
Oral papers

A great digital divide exists in the urban & rural India with respect to technology enabled learning, in schools implementing environmental education. Ubiquitous technologies has the potential to narrow down this divide in form of a communication tool to create, collaborate & share much in line to the Web 2.0 principles. To make it fruitful it’s important to scan existing ubiquitous technologies used in urban & rural India; develop a framework founded with pragmatic design principles to enable effective & affective environmental education assimilating these ‘present everywhere’ technologies.
