Updated: Jan 4

The Ministry of Education launched a new literacy app, ‘Animal Friends Learning’ on Friday at the Tuschen Nursery School.

The app was conceptualised to provide a work-based programme to develop children’s word recognition skills and expand their vocabulary. Minister of Education, Priya Manickchand in her address highlighted that technology if used properly can be vital in the education sector.
