Abstract

ICT in education plays a major role as teaching-learning process is concerned. There is an urgent need to improve the use of ICT education so that our schools and learners get the benefits of advances done in information technology. We have observed a stiff rise in usage of Social Media such as Twitter, Facebook and the ubiquitous nature of mobile applications. Students studying in higher classes are already familiar with social media and their dependency on the usage of these technologies have been increased many fold. Hence, we have to prepare our students so that they can face the challenges of IT using open source technologies which will act as a separate subject rather than a supporting platform for all subjects.
