he K-12 school system in India is one of the largest in the world with more than 1.4 million schools with over 250 million students enrolled.
The K-12 education sector has undergone an overhaul in the last decade. Although, technology has made inroads into the sector with the promise of actively engaging students in the learning process, thereby, improving learning outcomes and reducing teachers’ repetitive tasks, its huge potential has not been fully realized yet.
Publishers have key role to play in developing the learning eco-system. In the present scenario their role is much beyond content development – modern-day publishers are developing content for print and digital mediums, developing delivery mediums, assessment solutions and training teachers among other initiatives. Publishers can help by way of bringing qualitative improvements in government and public sector projects.
FICCI has instituted this platform to explore possible collaboration between various actors of the eco-system including children content creators, publishers, offline and online service providers, technology disrupters, teachers, schools, parents, children, and policy makers. To support the mandate in K-12 publishing space, we are organizing a programme “Scrapbook – Children’s Publishing Conclave” on August 10, 2019 at FICCI, Federation House, Tansen Marg, New Delhi. This initiative has been taken with the view to highlight the need and requirement for diversity of content in K-12 education space to enhance the learning outcomes.

We are expecting over 300 delegates from government, state education boards, publishers, content creators, digital disruptors, animators, illustrators, schools, and teachers etc. to participate in this programme.
