by Suneera Tandon, Live Mint and the Wall Street Journal

Technology may be the magic cure India needs for the ills that plague its school education, executives from companies providing technology solutions for classrooms said in a discussion at the World Economic Forum’s India Economic Summit, 2012. Education has a role to play in efforts of a country looking to transforming itself from a middle-income economy to a high-income one said the discussion’s moderator, Gordon Brown, United Nations special envoy for global education and the former Prime Minister of the UK. There is “no other important issue other than education in this country or globally,” he added. And in India, said the executives, at least some significant education challenges can be met through technology.
