Aakash Android Application Programming Workshop for Students

This Workshop is conducted by Team Aakash from February 23rd, 2013 to March 3rd, 2013


Introduction

It is now well established that the quality of education can be improved considerably by proper use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), to supplement the conventional mode of education. Aakash tablets were launched by MHRD in October 2011. These are Low Cost Access cum computing Devices. The National Mission on Education using ICT (NME-ICT) envisages that these tablets should be deployed for empowering our students and teachers.

Through this workshop, IIT Bombay plans to train participants on android application programming for Aakash tablets with two objectives. The first is to test and enhance the effectiveness of these tablets for use in classrooms. The second is development of new open source educational applications and contents for Aakash, largely through final year Research and Development projects done by BE/MCA/ME students at these Institutes.
