Students of classes VI to VIII in 10 government schools of the Chandigarh are finally getting “smart” education.

Teachers are using tablets to teach them.  Students can also use them to study after class, when they are kept in the library.

Six more schools will get these tablets in the next few months.  Besides tablets, schools have also installed wi-fi connections for easy access to pictures, 3D animation, diagrams and educational videos.

UT started smart learning classes in a few schools in the beginning of the session and tablets were provided recently.  Authorities feel the step has been a success as both students and teachers are enjoying the new mode of teaching.

Teachers feel use of tabs will be of immense benefit to students, who will be able to keep themselves updated with lessons even they happen to miss a class.

“We have launched tablets and according to the directions of MHRD, the e-pathshala app has been downloaded by teachers who will teach through ebooks,” said director, school education Rubinderjit Singh Brar.  NCERT experts trained teachers of 10 schools to use the e-pathshala app in May.
