Chennai , Nov. 30

THE International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) and Future Schools Foundation, Chennai, have entered into an agreement to improve teaching and learning with the effective use of technology for teachers at the district, State and national level.

Mr Annamalai Muthiah, Chairman, Future Schools Foundation, said that ISTE India would give Indian educators the same access to professional association and development as their colleagues in the US. The mission of ISTE India is to transform education in India to be more student-centred.

Mr Muthiah said that by the end of March 2005, 10 districts in Tamil Nadu would benefit from ISTE India. The organisation plans to hold a series of lectures and seminars to enhance the teaching of technology in schools. There are also plans to award a certificate from ISTE India for technology-based education and training for future teachers.

The first of the series of lectures that ISTE India plans to hold will be at Coimbatore on December 4, followed by Chennai, Bangalore and New Delhi.

Dr Richard D. Haynes, the US Consul-General in Chennai, said that ventures like ISTE India would play a significant role in enhancing technology education in India.
