The Indian school education system is one of the largest in the world. Over the last few decades India has made tremendous strides to ensure education for all, though in terms of quality of education there is a lot that needs to be done. Among the primary requirements of quality education, books published for children make an essential part of the knowledge that is consumed both within and outside classrooms. There is thus a need to continuously strive to improve the quality of content in books published for children and adapt to new technologies so as to make learning both informative as well as interesting. In order to address these issues, FICCI is organising PubliCon 2016 with the theme of “Publishing for Schools”.
PubliCon 2016 proposes to bring together teachers, publishers, content providers, technologists, innovators and people interested in school education, to discuss new teaching methodologies, curriculum design, content development, and use of modern technology in publishing content for schools.
