Two NDMC schools in Gole Market to get Smart Classes

NEW DELHI: With an aim to enhance proficiency of students in Mathematics and empower teachers to identify the learning needs of students, the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) has decided to introduce tablet-based Smart Classes on a pilot project basis in two of its schools.
In collaboration with non-profit educational organisation Khan Academy, the Council will provide NP Bengali Girls Senior Secondary School and NP Girls Senior Secondary School at Gole Market, with internet connectivity, tablets and smart boards. These facilities will cater to the need of 1,083 students and 11 teachers between Classes VI and XII.
The classes have been integrated into the regular time table of the schools and teachers have created virtual classes.
Instructional videos, practice exercises and a personalised learning dashboard that empower learners to study at their own pace in and outside classrooms will be offered.
Students will practice Mathematics for an hour on a weekly basis, under the guidance of teachers.
Apart from tracking completion of assignments by students, teachers would also be able to identify individual student learning needs of each student through the teacher dashboard.
NDMC is working to find out the possibilities and feasibility to extend this project to its 20 NDMC and Navyug Schools from the next session in April this year.
