Introduction of Research Group:

We aim to introduce a uniform learning environment in our country’s basic education system which would include lectures, practice material and assessments in electronic format. This e-learning project would deliver computer based teaching material consulting the latest research and current best practices in leading private schools of the country.The curriculum can be made available to government schools especially ones operating in backward and suburban areas so that the state-of-the-art education system may be replicated in low income area schools. This project would conduct research in a multifarious manner such that the lessons learnt and reported in contemporary research would be utilized as well as the local teaching experience at kindergarten level from teachers of local leading private schools would be incorporated. This would enable us to envision the behavior of a student and guide them for future academic and career endeavors.Keeping the objectives measureable or specified, teachers would monitor the learning outcomes, delivery of instruction and students’ achievement. Another purpose of developing this project is to provide unprivileged middle and lower class members of society same standard of education minimizing disparity between curricula. Within larger context of nation building and providing support to rural areas, a mobile school would be developed which would be used to teach developed computer based trainings in adjoining or remote areas where students have no access to state-of-the-art teaching methods and curriculum.

Primary Data would be gathered, as a byproduct, to analyze each student for monitoring the effectiveness of learning exercise through response analysis and special requirements to students could be known in a scientific manner.
