BBMP School Students To Get Tabs

The Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi started the Digital India campaign in 2015 in an attempt to promote innovation and development in the technology sector. Keeping that initiative in mind, technology giants, Microsoft and Tech Avant Garde have come together to bring the BBMP schools on par with other states and private schools.

This project is being proposed under the ‘BBMP Roshini’ program. In an attempt to make a model school and improve the quality of education, the civic body is planning to roll this out by December 16.  In the first phase they plan to use the technology in 7 schools of Bangalore as said by agency commissioner, N Manjunath Prasad. These are schools in Cleveland Town, Austin Town, Ganganagar, Gandhinagar, Moodalapalya, Byrasandra and Ashoknagar. “The remaining 149 schools will be taken up for the project in a phased manner,” Prasad said.

A seminar was held to address this on last Saturday. 900 teachers from 156 schools attended the event. CEO of Tech Avant Garde, Ali Sait proposed a budget of 500 to 600 crores over a period of 2 and a half years for this project. “We will be giving tablets to all the teachers shortly. The 17,000 students in BBMP schools will also be given tablets during the next academic year. Solar panels will be set up at schools to ensure the tablets are charged here,” he added.

Mr Sait also added that he plans to start an English training program for the students in DD Chandana which is Kannada TV channel. This is expected to launch by November 14th. “There will be a major thrust to improve the fluency in English,” he added.

 

There are around 17,000 students in 156 BBMP schools. He said: “There are several complaints of delay in distribution of uniforms to students and about low salaries for teachers. We’re now working to rectify these issues.”
