NDMC’s Educational Tablet Initiative Driving Digital India and NEP 2020 Goals

 “The project will go a long way in achieving the goal of the Digital India Scheme and fulfil requirements as per the new education policy”, said NDMC Chairman Satish Upadhyay.

The NDMC educational tablet initiative directly addresses the Digital India scheme by fostering access to technology-driven learning resources. Also, the scheme resonates with the ethos of NEP 2020 by promoting holistic development and personalized learning. Through the provision of study materials, videos, and question papers tailored to the curriculum, the tablets empower students to explore diverse subjects at their own pace, fostering a culture of self-directed learning advocated by the NEP.
