New Delhi, Jan.28 (Delhi Crown): The Arvind Kejriwal-led government in Delhi has announced plans to set up smart boards in 20,000 school classrooms.
A beginning has been made by installing these smart boards in 16 classrooms in the Shaheed Amir Chand Sarvodaya Vidyalaya located on Shankaracharya Marg in North Delhi.
Carrying out a review of the plan on Thursday, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia informed that the smart boards have been equipped with state-of-the-art technology that will make the teacher-student interaction better and a more joyful one.
All smart board classes would be recorded on camera both to improve the ongoing educational processes as well as to monitor the efficiency of staff in promoting integration of technology in learning resources, Sisodia added.
The deputy chief minister said that the more than 20,000 classrooms in schools would be converted into smart classrooms in a phased manner. Teachers too would be given special training to make better use of the smart boards, he said. Schools in Delhi are currently closed because of the Covid-19 crisis and the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) is yet to decide when to open them.
