Abstract [en]

Rapid development in Information technology are creating learning and teaching more interactive and efficient through innovative technology. The potential use of Internet and computer technology in the education has been widely recognized globally. Bhutan although with its limited ICT (Information and communication Technology) infrastructure shares the same view and wishes to yield the benefits of the technology into their education curriculum.

The aim of the project is to demonstrate the capability of web technology in developing web portal with low-end technology to teach school children the basic skills of mapping and GIS. The basic skills on map reading and application of simple query related to GIS forms the core component of this application which will help children learn map reading.

The application is created with low-end technology and is simple and easy to use. The project is not a complete portal and will not cover all aspect of mapping but will supplement the conventional classroom curriculum and can be developed into a full cross-curriculum portal with further contribution.
