The new revolutionary program in school education system is the Smart Classes that has changed the concept of learning (classroom teaching). Using all interactive modules like videos and presentations, it aims to revolutionize the way teachers teach and students learn in class. It promotes real time environment and collaborative learning. People in India are increasingly receptive to advances in technology and this has encouraged adaption of smart classroom.
Gradually the classrooms in educational institutions are upgraded, remodeled to become smart classrooms. Some classrooms may be completely upgraded while others may have only few features. Total number of school in India stands at 1.3 million, and only around 10% of the private schools have tapped the potential of multimedia classroom teaching, whereas in other schools, it has barely made any inroads.
Foundation for CSR @ Redington has realized the need of schools and education has made a significant move which turned a new leaf in education system. As visual knowledge is more powerful than reading knowledge, it gives students an audio visual aid. It also facilitates the teacher and clears the abstract concepts which can be shown easily in the classroom. This has helped teachers and students by means of animations, videos and all that in these interactive boards.
By providing the technology support like SMART Boards, Computers, A/Cs, Inverters, etc the Foundation aims to take the benefits of technology to the mass at large. To address the same, the Foundation has set-up smart room classes in TVS School in Madurai, Gandhigram etc., Around 1000 students have been the beneficiaries of this project so far.
