NEW DELHI: To help students access their online classes easily, especially those studying in classes X and XII, New Delhi Municipal Council recently distributed free tablets with preloaded education content to 811 students.
The pilot project was launched with four schools, Atal Adarsh Vidyalaya-Havelock Square, Atal Adarsh Balika Vidyalaya-Gole Market, Navyug School-Sarojini Nagar and Navyug School, Peshwa Road, New Delhi. The civic agency is also providing monthly internet packs of Rs 200 to these students for accessing unlimited data.
NDMC chairman Dharmendra said that the tablets were being provided under Smart City Project, and each of them has a 10-inch display and 32GB expandable memory.
The corporation has also established two tinkering labs in the Atal Adarsh Bengali Balika Vidyalaya, Gole Market and Atal Adarsh Balika Vidyalaya, Gole Market. “The lab is a work space where young minds can give shape to their ideas through hands-on, do-it-yourself mode and learn innovative skills,” said the chairman.
