Greater Visakhapatnam Smart City Corporation Limited this week declared a 3-year joint venture with IL&FS Education and Technology Services Ltd, a leading associate of Google for learning, to offer holistic education services to the schools located in this coastal town.
IL&FS will offer solutions, counting software, hardware, certification, and training to almost 31 schools. The declaration was made for Smart Cities Mission on the sidelines of the India Foundation Day here.
The solution is in keeping up with the Smart City mission to build future-ready and Internet-linked classrooms.
The education offering of Google allows the candidates to learn to utilize open web techniques, counting interactive content and apps, claimed a statement.
The upcoming classroom lab system merges the requirement of a digital classroom via the use of an integrated computer projector, dubbed as K-Yan, and personalized learning via the use of Chromebooks for every student.
Under the joint venture, the schools will be offered with GSuite with Chromebooks for learning. The content on the Chromebooks will be accessible in both Telugu and English. The gadgets are integrated with Chrome Management Console for secure and managed learning experiences for the candidates, professional development for teachers, and when accessing the Internet.
“Below the Smart City proposal, our aim is to modify traditional classrooms by authorizing teachers to equip digital aids and tools flawlessly in their teaching procedure. Our vision is to pace education for students and encourage critical thinking and creativity,” said CEO and Managing Director of GVSCCL, M. Hari Narayanan.
“What is coming next in tech will form our future. We are dedicated to empowering teachers and schools with 21st-century learning abilities of communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking,” said Head of Education of Google India, Bani Paintal Dhawan.
Having said this, the Smart City mission in the city Visakhapatnam is an initiative by Google that will truly help in forming a great future for India. The initiative stands out as an odd man out due to its ability to empower students and teacher with great technology for the sole purpose of education. Let us wish them all the luck for the future.
