Newsletter Vol – 4, Issue 6, April, 2020


As education sector is undergoing a major shift globally with all schools, colleges and universities shut, we at IDA have brought all the educators together to disseminate the message of positivity and how to deal with these trying times. Amidst the lockdown, our education fraternity is encouraging easy adaptability of technology to ensure education doesn’t suffer. Few months back, before this pandemic, we all were discussing and focusing on how the future of education would see technology on the forefront. But today that future which we had discussed or imagined is already here. Schools and colleges may be closed but the education community is coming together to fight these trying times with conviction and technology seems to be our only hope at the moment.
