These devices have preloaded hardware, personalized and adaptive learning software and 2 GB of free data. The government plans to provide the device to five lakh children in grades 10 to 12. However, he said pupils in Class 11 would receive them after passing the Class 10 board exams and qualifying for the following year.
“Previously, students in schools had to carry their books in bags, but from today their books will be in this tab.” “A goal has been set in the new education policy to execute the education delivery agenda by embracing technology across the country, and we are committed to accomplishing it by 2025,” he said. he declares.
“Today, a major revolution in the education sector has begun.” Such a large-scale campaign for public school children has never been undertaken in any other state in the country.
No state in the country has ever delivered tablets to five lakh youths at one time. Haryana is the first state to do so. The e-Adhigam project will be a momentous opportunity in the education industry. Many more reforms would be implemented in the education sector in the coming years,” Lal said, adding that COVID-19 had harmed the education sector and forced schools to close, but the tablet had now become the new classroom.
Haryana, according to the chief minister, spends “the largest share” of its budget on education. He said 20,000 crore has been spent on education in the current budget alone. He said dramatic reforms were being implemented in the school system and budget cuts would not be an obstacle.
Lal said the administration will organize two task forces for the education sector. “One task force will work on infrastructure, buildings, boundary walls, attractiveness, cleanliness, roads, water and toilets, and other necessary school requirements, while the other team of work will ensure the arrangement of school furniture, etc.” “Within a year, double benches would be installed in all schools in Haryana,” he promised.
