- JWB Discussion
- January 6, 2016
The initiative by CBSE to introduce online textbooks for classes I to XII has received mixed response from the schools in the city. The idea behind launching an app named E-CBSE and online textbook is to unburden the pressure on children and increase accessibility.
We already know the pros and cons of ebooks and textbooks. Here’s what the Jaipur Principals think:
“In an effort to bring technology closer to students and teachers and ensure digital access, CBSE has prepated e-learning material for students and teachers. In our school, we have already made students aware about it and have received an overwhelming response from both students and parents” – Jyoti Rana, Principal, Ryan International School
“Poor Internet connectivity is the biggest problem in our country and there are chances that it might not prove to be a reliable option. Nevertheless, the initiative is great and deserves an applause. If the internet issue can be worked upon, it is going to be the most reliable option.” – Dr. TC Pathak, Principal, Kids Paradise School
