Class 10 and 12 students appearing for their state board exams this academic year have an added feature in their classrooms with advanced integration of information and communications technology (ICT) across schools in Tamil Nadu.
An Information Recognition Application Technology (IRAT) based app called ‘TN Schools Live’ was developed by the ICT cell of SCERT to help make text book information more demonstrative and interactive. Using the app on an image or concept in the text book automatically transforms it into a three-dimensional live demonstration along with a tutorial in Tamil to explain the concepts. The app can be used on a phone, tablet, computer or laptop.
