Kathmandu, November 10

Education experts have stressed on  enhancing the quality of education by integrating information technology into classrooms.

At a programme organised here today to mark 10th anniversary of Open Learning Exchange Nepal, speakers expressed their belief that technology can help address the twin problems of quality and disparity in Nepal’s education system. They also urged the Ministry of Education to effectively implement projects related to the use of technology in classrooms and learn about the practical challenges in transforming education.

Addressing the function, Director General of Department of Education Baburam Poudel said that OLE Nepal had made significant contribution to enhancing quality of education in public schools. Open Learning Exchange Nepal’s Chairman Prithivi Pande said OLE Nepal partnered with the Department of Education to launch laptop-based integrated learning initiative in 2008.  He also said that  the programme would be expanded to more schools in the days ahead.

“OLE Nepal’s mission is to help address these problems through the integration of ICT into daily classroom teaching-learning process,” he said.
