Six government schools will get “smart class solutions” under the Patna Smart City Project.
All the schools are located in the Area-Based Development (ABD) localities and an expression of interest has already been issued for private agencies interested in setting up smart classrooms.”
Classrooms will be both digital and virtual, said Divisional Commissioner Anand Kishor.
The components will be document camera, interactive whiteboard, interactive projector, multimedia pens or stylus, wireless microphones, speakers, printers, scanners, and central processing unit (CPU),”
Teachers will get training to integrate teaching techniques with technology for the use of visuals and animations. This smart teaching will promote the idea of “Learning by fun” and tablet-based learning among students.
Smart classes are 90 per cent more competent than ordinary classes, but it is entirely depend on teachers how effectively they adopt this concept.
Divisional Commissioner also inspected the office of Patna Smart City and directed the executive officer to complete the construction work of the 6,000 square feet by 15 June.
