While developing the content the socio-cultural requirements of the students were considered.
Through ‘Udaan Shiksha Ki’ primers and guidelines NCERT is trying to develop audio-visual study material for adult students. The books are theme-based and they revolve around 13 different themes. These include Family and neighborhood, conversation, environment, health and sanitation, financial literacy, disaster management, digital literacy, etc.
In this directive, a broader perspective of literacy, the objective of learning language and mathematics, the procedure for teaching and learning, etc. is included. The process of learning and teaching is discussed in detail.
