Smartboards will be installed in more than 20,000 classrooms: Delhi government
To provide quality education to all the students at Delhi government schools, the government is in the process of transforming them into smart schools, said a statement issued by the Delhi government.
To begin with, smartboards will be installed in more than 20,000 classrooms built by the Kejriwal government in Delhi’s government schools, it said.
“This process of making classrooms smart has started from Shaheed Amir Chand Sarvodaya Vidyalaya located at Shankaracharya Marg, where 16 classrooms have been transformed into smart classrooms by installing hi-tech smartboards,” it said.
On Tuesday, Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister Manish Sisodia visited the school to review the transformation process and understand the working of smart boards.
The Deputy Chief Minister said all these smart boards are equipped with state-of-the-art technology that will not only make the teaching-learning process a joyful one, but also help children learn better.
“With the integration of technology, children will have access to all online learning resources. Along with this, modern cameras for recording will also be installed in classrooms so that live recording of the class can be done. These recorded videos can be further accessed by students and teachers for educational purposes, whenever required. He added that in the last few years more than 20,000 new classrooms have been constructed in government schools of Delhi. We will convert all these classrooms into smart classrooms in a phased manner along with those under construction. Special training will be given to all the teachers to make better use of the smart boards for improving the quality of education at schools,” he said.
Sisodia said in the last 5-6 years, the infrastructure of Delhi’s schools has become world-class.
It was a dream of Babasaheb Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar that each child should get quality education, said Sisodia, adding that while fulfilling his dream, our aim is to provide quality education to each student in Delhi government schools and we are determined to do that.
