The Government Schemes of Free Tablet to Teachers: What You Need to Know?

A blog post by iDream Education discussing government schemes that provide free tablet to teachers

With the increasing integration of digital tools in student learning, the government is also focusing on making teachers tech-friendly.  Equipping teachers with tablets and the necessary training is a key step towards enabling effective, efficient teaching incorporating adaptive learning modules, engaging content, and more. Fortunately, numerous central and state government schemes offer free tablet to teachers, facilitating this transition. 

Some of these government initiatives and schemes are

ICT@Samagra Shiksha: 

A comprehensive initiative by the Ministry of Education places significant emphasis on empowering primary school teachers with technology. Recognizing the importance of digital tools in the education system, the scheme has allocated substantial financial support of Rs. 10,000 per teacher for tablets. This strategic move is implemented from 2022-23 under the “Learning Recovery Package,” which aims to enhance teaching methodologies and learning outcomes in primary education.  With a total of 1,482,565 tablets sanctioned to teachers handling primary classes, the initiative demonstrates a commitment to integrating technology into the foundational years of education, thereby fostering a digitally proficient generation.

e-Adhigam initiative

Haryana’s e-Adhigam initiative is enhancing education in the state by bridging the historical learning gaps. In this over 5 lakh students received tablets equipped with personalized and adaptive learning software and daily internet access. Additionally, the government has also focused on expanding online educational resources by providing tablets to 37,370 PGT Teachers to get free tablets in Haryana with specialized modules. The vision is to foster virtual interactions and create new avenues for student-teacher engagement.  This comprehensive approach not only expands access to online educational resources but also changes the way education is delivered and received in Haryana.

Nipun Bharat Digital Initiative: 

NBDI, an initiative by the Department of Basic Education in Uttar Pradesh, envisioned empowering teachers with tablets as part of a comprehensive learning resource package. This project aims to bridge the digital divide in education and enhance teaching practices across the state. With the creation of the Nipun Bharat Digital Initiative Unified Portal and a dedicated mobile app, teachers now have access to a centralized platform that streamlines communication, data management, and resource allocation. This innovative solution not only simplifies administrative tasks but also fosters transparency and collaboration among stakeholders, ultimately contributing to a more efficient and effective education system.

Uttar Pradesh to Equip 2.36 Lakh Teachers with Tablets by September 2024

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath Ji, announced in July 2023 that 2.36 lakh government primary and upper primary school teachers will receive tablets. Scheduled for completion by September 2024, this initiative aims not only to distribute tablets but also to encourage the use of the DIKSHA app. The tablets, pre-loaded with information about government programs and initiatives, are expected to facilitate real-time attendance tracking and the posting of details, alongside providing access to additional digital learning materials. Vijay Kiran Anand, director general of school education, stated, “There are approximately 600,000 teachers in 130,000 government schools. We are working to provide tablets to teachers in phases. In the initial phase, we aim to supply at least two tablets per school to facilitate teachers’ academic work.

In recent years, both central and state governments have made commendable strides in equipping teachers with technology, often in the form of tablets.

While these initiatives acknowledge the critical role of digital tools in education, the current approach falls short of its full potential. Pre-loaded devices with limited education material, focused primarily on administrative tasks or standardized content delivery, which overlooks the diverse needs of teachers. The true power of technology lies in its ability to enhance the teacher-learning experience – to spark curiosity, foster collaboration, and personalize instruction.

Our Vision of Enabling Tablet To Teachers

We believe that instead of restricting teachers to tablets, let’s provide them with a versatile toolkit that deepens their understanding of each student, makes their classrooms more fun, and exposes them to various forms of content to teach different concepts in diverse ways. Additionally, tools that inspire them to create their own teaching materials. 

With this in mind, we propose enabling offline content creation through the content library application when providing Tablet to Teachers.
