‘Social’ technologies can work in education

Your Education is Our World

IT boom did many things, and one significant effect was the shift in the conversation from only ‘employment’ to ‘employability’ and ‘scale,’ observes Vaidya Nathan, Founder and CEO, Classle Knowledge Pvt Ltd, Chennai (www.classle.net).
