This enables learning and teaching anywhere, anytime, and not confined to the four walls of the school. This flexibility  also allows greater involvement of parents and guardians in the learning process of their wards.

Our ebooks are not just static conversion of the printed book; they are enriched with a number of interactive activities and assessments together with audio and video content. In other words the content is presented in the way the children like it best, so that, they are able to grasp the concepts and remember them better and longer.


Teacher's Manual

PIC provides user friendly Teacher’s Manual to guide teachers on how to facilitate successful lessons. The manuals recommend on using stories, poems and other stimuli as set induction, on strategies that lead to fruitful thinking, on tips to having integrated and interactive lessons, on inspiring case studies.

The Teacher's manual is the instructor’s road map of what students need to learn and how to deliver the lesson effectively during the given class time.

Lesson planning is a vital component of the teaching-learning process. Proper classroom planning will keep teachers organized and on track while teaching. The better prepared the teacher is, the more likely she will be able to handle whatever unexpectedly happens in the lesson.

Lesson plans help the teacher to be clear about what she wants to teach. Teachers need to make wise decisions about the strategies and methods that they would apply to help learners understand & move systematically toward learner centric goals. It suggests a level of professionalism and real commitment.

The teacher's manual consists of the following sub parts: Activity Sheet, Teacher Support Document, Graphic Organizer, PPT, Practice Sheet, Flash cards, Class Test.



The workbook exercises are based on Bloom‛s Taxonomy and Gardner‛s theory of Multiple Intelligences in the exercises so that it caters to a holistic approach towards the development of a learner.

The workbook is conceptualized with a variety of questions such as MCQ, HOTS, Diagram / Picture Based Questions, Puzzles, Sequencing, Brain teasersetc. The workbook is based on the Shikshan publication textbook.

Schools are provided with a syllabus for each grade and subject. The syllabus provides the teacher with the number of periods required to complete a particular lesson. The syllabus is planned keeping in mind the tentative number of working days that each school is expected to have in a single academic year. While formulating the syllabus care is taken to include sufficient time for revision of topics, annual day, sports day and other activities.
