In education, digital or online learning stands as a complement rather than a supplement to classroom experiences. Leveraging its unique strengths, it empowers learners with flexibility, and with personalized learning, it enhances student’s assimilation and learning of topics.

Government and various stakeholders continuously strive to enhance school learning experiences

Edtech companies, system integrators, CSR, NGOs, and other stakeholders in the ecosystem are joining hands to enable quality education accessible to all. Despite these efforts, government schools still grapple with challenges like limited space, unreliable electricity, and poor internet connectivity. 

An android tablet based digital library, however, fits every situation as it is an easy-to-setup, use, and maintain solution. It does not require extra space, wiring, or furniture to keep. Also known as Smart ICT Lab, it can be set up/moved to any classroom, hall, or lab. Further, it does not require continuous electricity and the Internet. All this while enabling Personalized Learning Environment in Schools.

Revision of ICT Lab Policy by Ministry of Education

The Ministry of Education has revised the ICT lab policy to change the learning landscape by integrating easy-to-access and maintained technology into schools. The ICT and Digital Initiatives component of Samagra Shiksha focuses on supporting Government Schools. Financial provisions for ICT Lab by MoE include a one-time non-recurring grant of up to Rs. 6.40 lakh per school, along with a recurring grant of up to Rs. 2.40 lakh per school per annum for a duration of 5 years. An android tablet based digital library directly meets the revised guidelines for ICT labs as per the revised ICT Policy.

Integration of Personalized Learning Through ICT Lab Scheme

This scheme incorporates tablets, laptops, notebooks, and a charging rack as integral components of the revamped ICT Lab. Introducing these user-friendly devices provides teachers and students with more accessible solutions. This naturally aligns with their familiarity with using smartphones and has the ability to enable personalized Learning in Schools. Samagra Shiksha Abhiyan has already sanctioned over 120,000 ICT Labs nationwide and has also provided training to over 1.5 million teachers.

Summarizing the benefits of an Android Tablet based Digital Library or Smart ICT Lab at schools:

  • Easy to use, set up, and Maintain

The Digital Library is designed to be user-friendly, effortless to set up, and simple to maintain. It consists of android tablets along with charging racks, and you can easily install and relocate it to any classroom, hall, or lab as per your requirements. This portable solution ensures that students and teachers have convenient access to personalized devices, fostering an effortless teaching and learning experience. 

  • Personalized Learning

Digital library is permanently placed within the school premises, ensuring students of all classes have equal access to digital learning. Students can use the android tablets in the Digital Library on a rotational basis, enabling personalized learning. A notable example of this practice is the Digital Library Timetable, which is implemented and followed in various government schools. Principals, in collaboration with teachers, develop a timetable that specifies slots for students and teachers to access the digital library. As a result, students and teachers of many government schools are enjoying using the personalized devices and accessing digital content.
