Leaving behind the old teaching methods, Chandigarh Education Department has introduced smart classes in as many as nine government schools of Chandigarh to enhance the learning environment. Trying to be at par with top private schools of Chandigarh, this is the first time that the central government has took the initiative to make government schools as smart schools.
A pilot project took off in these schools from April session which aimed towards providing digital education to students. Over 200 classrooms have been provided with digital equipments including digital boards, visuals & animation aids, projectors etc. This has been done with the help of a private company named “Extra Marks” that has some top private schools across India as its clients. The response from these 200 smart classrooms in 9 government schools of Chandigarh has been immensely productive. Apart from making children learn things in a new way, it also helps in more concentration & engagement.
Special sessions were organized for teachers working at government schools in Chandigarh for the proper implementation of smart classrooms.
