In addition, on-site operation and maintenance support will be provided by service providers to ensure uninterrupted and smooth operation of smart classes in classrooms.

Smart classes will benefit both teachers and students in several ways

Smart classes generate interest and enthusiasm for learning among students which will likely increase their comprehension and learning levels. Digital content based on the curriculum prepared by NCERT and SCERT can also be used effectively through smart classes. Smart classes further provide teachers and students with a modern and globally recognized educational system.

Furthermore, availability of internet connectivity in schools with smart classes facilitates use of various multimedia educational materials. It will help teachers to monitor students’ progress easily while online examinations can also be conducted effectively. Furthermore, internet connectivity enables activities like monitoring of online teacher training, data collection, and assessment of children.

Features of the ICT Lab

The ICT lab includes 7 computer desktops, 1 interactive flat panel (IFP) with an operating system, 1 inverter with a battery, 1 HD webcam with an inbuilt microphone, 1 PA system (handled mic with receiver and speaker), along with other networking and hardware equipment.

Notably, with the availability of digital resources, children can engage in digital learning whereas the teachers can enhance their skills. Additionally, teachers can conduct online classes based on the curriculum. In development blocks, the availability of digital resources enables the collection and monitoring of information through various portals such as Mid-Day Meal, Prerna Portal, Manav Sampada Portal, and more.

Furthermore, teachers can access attractive and interactive online content in addition to textbooks through the ICT lab, which will enhance the education system.

Primary school teachers will receive tablets from government

With the aim of providing quick access to information, educational materials, and establishing an effective monitoring system, the Chief Minister inaugurated the distribution of tablets to 209,863 primary school teachers (2 for each primary school).

It is worth mentioning that the use of tablets will make teaching more convenient for students. Teachers can access training materials, textbooks, and over 6,500 educational contents available on Diksha portal as well as contents of various higher-level institutions.

Through the use of tablets, the basic language and math skills of children can be assessed using other apps (Nipun Lakshya App and Saral App). Additionally, registers used in schools will be available in digital form via tablets. Tablets will also enable the easy operation of the Prerna App, device management, the Manav Sampada Portal, and monitoring of the Mid-Day Meal scheme and the PFMS portal.

Furthermore, tablets will help prevent double enrollment of students, ensuring transparency and streamlined payments through DBT. Learning-by-doing can also be conducted using tablets, and students can practice on computers available in the classroom.
