With over 11 lakh elementary schools, India has one of the largest government school systems in the world. The Government, through some of its landmark initiatives, such as the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA), has been addressing issues of access and retention to a fair extent. For a country with such complex geographies, children from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds in rural India are left with limited access to quality educational resources.

IIFL Foundation extends its support to empower government schools with digital learning systems, by converting classrooms to 'Smart Classrooms'.

When it comes to quality education, the basic need of students and teachers is access to wider and extensive resource material for a deep dive into several topics. This need is amplified in government schools located in semi-urban and rural locations, where access to library or internet is virtually absent.

To meet this requirement, IIFL Foundation explored a range of digital learning products that offered content rich, easy-to-use systems and subsequently chose ‘Smart Board’ as an ideal tool to shape the minds of the learners.

'Smart Board' is a compact yet powerful system comprising a CPU coupled with a projected screen and speakers. The content is developed for curriculum prescribed by Board of Secondary Education, Rajasthan (RBSE). The equipment functions over electricity and the content can be easily navigated using a remote control or a smart stick.

The digital content offers access to archives of images and videos backed with voice overs that cover topics for each subject. The content is regularly upgraded once every few months.

Smart Board not only aids the teacher while teaching but is a standalone system that can teach every topic even in absence of a teacher. Smart Boards have allowed students to widen their perspective and grow as a learner.
