All schools to be linked with ‘digital boards’
The Central government has decided to connect all schools in India with “digital boards” and has been pushing the scheme at 25 Kendriya Vidyalayas under a pilot project, Union minister Upendra Kushwaha said.
“Tablets have been provided to the 25 schools where the project has been launched under ‘Operation Digital Blackboard’,” the minister of state for Human Resource Development said.
During the initial phase, schools will be equipped with “smart boards” and the Central Advisory Board of Education has given its approval for it during a recent meeting, Kushwaha added. The campaign will replicate the blackboard campaign ran by the government across the country 60 years ago.
