Kerala to give IT training to visually challenged teachers
The Kerala government has decided to train 500 visually-challenged teachers in various areas of Information and Communication Technology.
The training will enable the teachers to handle their subjects more effectively with the use of technology. The training to the blind teachers will be given as part of the Hi-Tech School programme launched in the state.
This will make Kerala the first state in the country to have trained all visually challenged teachers in IT. In 2011, the government had given basic IT training to all visually-challenged teachers in the State.
Initiatives like these will help education and also create an inclusive environment in the country.
