Tech-savvy Govt school has computerised classroom

This school in a nondescript locality on the extreme South of Bangalore City has become the first in Karnataka to have a Smart Classroom, with a computerised classroom. Set up by Dell in association with Learning Links Foundation, an NGO, under the Dell Youth Connect Programme, this school can be envy of even private schools in the state.

Launching the Smart Class, the Minister for Primary and Secondary Education Vishveshwara Hegde Kageri asked the officials of his department to replicate this model across Bangalore and children studying in government schools should not engrossed with an inferiority complex in comparision with the private schools.

Hailing the local MLA M Krishnappa for the initiative taken by him to rope in corporate giants like Dell into enhancing the quality of education in this government school, Kageri said he would certainly like to have a government English medium school and a PU College in the vicinity.

The Smart Class, an initiative of Dell under its Dell Youth Connect programme, aims at bridging the digital divide in the society, said Sameer Garde, the Country Manager of the Dell India and President of APJ Services. The SCIMA Digital Enhancement Programme (Science Math and Digital Literacy Enhancement Programme) aims to generate interest and enthusiasm among the secondary school students towards Science and Math. It also empowers them to use technology tools to research, analyse, collaborate and communicate effectively.
