It should go into the realms of teaching-learning process that enables children to participate in their own learning and provides the teacher with the opportunity to plan according to the pace and context of the learner.
The objectives of the portal were to provide a forum for sharing and interaction for teachers outside the formal training environment and supported the development of a knowledge community amongst teachers.
It would also provide a forum to share best practices, to motivte teachers to access, apply and add value to the existing knowledge, strengthen initiatives on teacher development and make help available for professional development of teachers.
