Dec 2nd has been christened as World PC Literacy Day by the United Nations. The Indian arm of the technology giant DELL Inc. has taken a leap further in the social awareness domain by commemorating the Dec 1-20 as DELL PC Literacy Days.
Having heard of the same, I was getting curious for such a brilliant initiative, I as a Mommy Blogger was invited to be a panel member to participate in the discussion forum around the theme ‘The Gateway to New Age Learning and Overall Development of Young Children – The Personal Computer”.
The Panel Discussion had such and more enlightening views on technology playing an important role in the overall development of a child. Adorned with many Bloggers who are technologically aware and active online influencers, the discussion had experts from the field of both technology and education. The Panel had Ritu Gupta, Director, Marketing, Consumer & Small Business, Dell India, Sanchit Vir Gogia, Founder & CEO, Greyhound Research, Gayatri Singh, Founder, Team Explore – Think Stations, Harpreet Kaur Sapra, Serial Technology Entrepreneur & Co-Founder at Maker’s Box and Ritu Taneja, Teacher/Trainer; Educational, Editorial Consultant and Author speaking on ‘new-age’ parenting and how every parent wishes to better the way his child learns, realizing the importance of PC in making it happen.
