While most of the courses focus on the Office Suite to provide digital literacy, we designed a course for creative citizens. This is achieved through an innovative blend of constructivism, constructionism and connectionism. The course imparts the required skills for using the media to learn not the media per se but that the media is a good and potential medium for learning Science, Mathematics and language skills through making, sharing, seeking and networking.

A series of challenges are placed before students which they have to work through by collaborative doing and discovering. The students are assessed not only for the tangible outcomes but also for the process and quality of engagement. The new media in the form of a school server is very effective in exposing the invisible and implicit aspects of the process of engagement to the foreground making it amenable for assessment. The course is designed to explore and exploit this potential of the new medium so that the formative assessment becomes easy and not a problem to the teacher. Self, peer and mentor assessments are employed in the evaluation. The school-server provides a platform for the collaborative interactions to take place in the classroom. The platform also doubles up as a place for creation of a digital portfolio. The use of local language for interactions helps the learners overcome the barrier of English language as a entry for working with computers.

Currently the I2C course is being offered in over 500 government schools in 4 states in India under the CLIx project. The analysis of data from these schools provide a rich picture of the learning taking place.
