E-Shiksha / E-Education

Bringing digital learning to Ekal’s primary schools.

Rural India fell further behind when schools closed for two years during the Covid pandemic. E-Education is an innovative initiative to incorporate customized, high quality digital learning in Ekal’s 80,000+ single-teacher primary schools.

Tablets provide an audio-visual component to Ekal’s curriculum, where students gain digital literacy to make learning engaging and fun.
