The exhibition will also be open to local institutions, students, academicians and researchers from March 16 to 17.

The two-day meeting on March 16 and 17 will provide a platform to deliberate on the four priority areas.

They are: Ensuring foundational literacy and numeracy, especially in context of blended learning; Making tech-enabled learning more inclusive, qualitative and collaborative at every level; Building capacities, promoting lifelong learning in the context of future of work; and Strengthening research, promoting innovation through richer collaboration and partnerships.
