CBSE introduces IT Application based courses in vocational course category. The motive behind this move is crystal clear as technology rules the world. We are living in the era of Information technology and Vocational education and training in schools will help build an educated and skilled workforce that is strongly needed in India. To have a clear idea about IT and its application, myCBSEguide has gathered all the information and describes it with keeping students interest in mind.
Technology is an essential concept to learn. Because it changes so quickly, children are better off learning about it sooner. It is a primary part of every industry, and there is no way around it. When using educational technology, we should be primarily focused on the educational value of the tools and applications we use, how adequate they are in the acquisition of knowledge, whether there is an interaction between users and tools, and if we have positive effects in using them. You can also visit CBSE official page for further information about it.
