Telecentres As Educational Models

I think telecentres should also be considered proactively as educational models, in addition to the business model concept. Vocational training for the community, adult literacy etc can be such prepossessing concerns.In fact telecentres can be the focal points for community learning, where distance education can be used with the integration of technologies.Ananya S GuhaSee More

Ananya S Guha replied to Sandra Nassali's discussion Are n't Internet cafes becoming a threat to telecentres?
"I think as yet since most of the internet cafes are in urban areas, the threat is not there. Moreover the target groups, if I may call them so for both are different so I do not think there is any such imminent threat. It is like saying a social…"

Such a model will help to augment activities such as teacher training, literacy, carreer counselling, and even inparting awareness programmes on a short term basis such as awareness on health… Continue
