Digital classrooms in city

The Coimbatore Corporation has readied four modern, digital classrooms with computers, internet connection and electronic equipment in as many schools to improve teaching-learning experience.

This could well arrest the declining student strength in schools, said Commissioner K. Vijayakarthikeyan.

Resolution

As per a resolution the Corporation had passed around four months ago, the Corporation had spent Rs. 1 crore to also install interactive boards in the classrooms, where students would get to see modules the teachers had prepared on various topics in textbooks.

The Corporation would supplement the audio-visual modules with those available in the public domain, he added.

The civic body had established the classrooms in its schools on Oppanakara Street, in Selvapuram, Udayampalayam, P.N. Pudur, and Peelamedu.

Extension

In phases, it would extend the facility to other middle and high schools, where students in classes six to nine would benefit by using the facility at least twice a week.

The classes would start this week, said the Commissioner.

The Corporation had taken up the digital classroom project after it found success in the project at the Maniakarampalayam School, where it had partnered with American India Foundation and Dell, for what was called the Digital Equaliser Programme.

In the four schools there were around 1,000 students who would benefit .

Chennai Corporation to roll out SWOT analysis for its schools

In a renewed effort to give Chennai Corporation schools a leg up, the civic body’s officials are making a fresh assessment of all its 282 schools through an analysis of admission data.

Sources at the Corporation said a SWOT analysis would be conducted by taking into account admission statistics of the past three years in all Corporation schools.

“We are trying to understand why admission may have dropped in certain areas and figure ways to retain the children in our schools,” a Corporation official said.

Senior Corporation officials will be making field visits to the schools.

“A senior official visited one of our schools in north Chennai recently, to assess the possibility of converting it into a residential school under Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan,” the official added.

About 56 schools had been merged between the period of 1999 and 2011 due to low enrolment.

Recently, a resolution was passed at the Corporation council to convert 12 defunct Corporation schools into shelters for homeless persons.

Further, unused school buildings have been turned into offices for the Corporation.

Corporation officials, however, said that as far as quality of education is concerned, the schools are on a par with private ones.

“Maybe we lack good marketing skills, but our students are doing just as well. We are just facing stiff competition from private schools, as parents believe it is below their station to admit their children in Corporation schools. We need to figure out a way to dispel that myth,” a senior Corporation official said.
