Computer Aided Learning and role of ICT in Education has been a matter of investigation and exploration for many years. There are many divergent points of view about the extent to which these can be useful in an elementary school programme. The Azim Premji Foundation has been a pioneer in looking at the use of computers in schools to help children learn actively. The emphasis of the Foundation is to use this as an aid for the teacher and to supplement what she is able to do. Much before anyone else, the Foundation thought of giving children the opportunity to actively explore concepts through computers. The Premji Foundation began developing programmes that could give children opportunities to engage with concepts and learn. The process of developing these involved many teachers and teacher educators apart from experts in disciplines and in computer pedagogy.
