The provision of education for all in India remains a distant dream, despite substantial amounts of
government and state investment going into it. The objective of this study is to highlight an alternative
learning model that makes use of the e-revolution that has proliferated into every aspect of our lives.
Although there have been attempts to incorporate ICT into rural classrooms, most of the focus has been on
video-based digitized learning and has not efficiently addressed the best ways in which learning can be

teachers in remote areas and allows for the free permeation of education in ways that might bridge
the digital divide amongst students of various socio economic backgrounds. In this context our intervention
focuses on a class of 16 students, 10 to 11 years of age (class 5) at Ma Sarada Shishu Tirtha, a school for
