Seminar-cum-competition at Azam Campus to promote e-learning

Friday February 11, 2011 11:47:09 PM, Correspondent

Pune: In order to keep pace with the fast growing IT world, Pune based Information Communication Technology (ICT) Academy is organising a day-long seminar-cum-competition for school teachers February 12 to promote e-learning.

“Information Communication Technology (ICT) Academy since last two years is organising IT seminar-cum-competition to create awareness among the Urdu medium school teachers about the importance of computers in the education field”, Samreen Shaikh, the event coordinator and the IT Incharge at Azam Campus, Pune informed

“During the day-long event, the participants would be asked to design PowerPoint presentation on different topics given by us. The idea is to judge their IT literacy level, and then based on their performances, we would take them for skill upgradation sessions”, she added.

“The best performers would also be awarded with special and consolation prizes”, she said.

Established by renowned educationalist PA Inamdar, ICT Academy is part of Azam Campus – the huge education hub in Pune, which runs over a dozen professional and academic courses besides having high school, junior college, college of education and senior college. Brainchild of computer savvy Inamdar, ICT Academy has a total of 21 centres in and around Pune, and also at Aurangabad, Ahmednagar and Junnar. It is giving computer education to school children and housewives totally free.

“Besides the teachers associated with ICT Academy, others from Urdu medium schools in Malegaon and Lonavala are also taking part in Saturday’s competition and skill upgradation program”, Samreen said.

“The participants would also be given an overview of advanced software tools like PhotoShop and Flash, which are very useful while using computers as teaching tools”, she said.


Well aware of the importance of IT education, ICT Academy is regularly organising such events. In December, 2010, it had organised similar program for the students of English, Urdu and Marathi medium schools of Pune district.
