The Hubballi-Dharwad Smart City Limited (HDSCL) has decided to convert the century-old Lamington High School in Hubballi, the second largest city in Karnataka, into a smart school under the Smart City mission.
“In order to improve the quality of education imparted to the students, a smart school makes diverse use of enhanced digital and Information Communication Technologies (ICT). For such ideal learning and teaching, we have set an estimated budget of Rs 1.81 crore,” said SH Naregal, a special officer of HDSCL.
The project will comprise components like 3D modelling and animation software, e-library, Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR) mode, drawing mode, and school management software. 3D modelling incorporates the pivotal process of developing the mathematical representation of any surface of an object in three dimensions with the help of a special software.
Also, VR is an interactive computer generated experience which occurs in a simulated environment that encompasses keyly auditory and visual and has other types of sensory feedback. AR provides an amalgamated view of an image, according to an HDSCL official.
After the tender is floated, the project will soon be implemented. Lamington High School is one of the oldest and reputed government high schools in North Karnataka.
