Abstract
PCF10 Sub-theme: Building Resilience // The covid-19 pandemic has shattered society and its system including education. Prolonged lockdowns, social distancing, and strict protocols of safety have affected educational processes to a great extent. However, with the potential of digital devices and internet facilities, the mode of teaching has been rapidly changed to online virtual mode. The government's proactive initiatives in India and the states' response coupled with individual schools and teachers have applied their creative minds to tap the power of technology to reach out to the unreached and continue the learning process. // This paper focusses on the digital initiatives in the education sector, especially in the states of Rajasthan, Kerala, and Madhya Pradesh, and the academic resilience to invigorate pedagogical processes with the appropriate integration of digital technologies in education. // Paper ID 7916
