NEW DELHI, 11 JAN: To bring the level of municipal primary schools at par with English medium schools, the South Corporation has decided to equip them with projectors, cameras and computers.
The South Corporation education committee has prepared a budgetary proposal for the year 2014-15 under which the civic body has planned to create an audio-visual resource centre at a cost of Rs 1 crore.
This resource centre will be like a knowledge hub from where the learning programmes would be run through certain software.
Mr Satish Upadhyay, chairman education committee, South Coprporation is trying to enhance the skills and knowledge of municipal school children with the help of technical and systematic reform.
Mr Upadhyay said: "We have asked for preparing a software which will help in showing an audio visual clip of cartoons and some other things through projectors. This software will also read the demand of period, that what time which one program should be run."
However, it is yet to be decided that where the resource centre will be built." A final decision will be taken after getting clearance from the house. Perhaps, it will be built at the headquarters," said Mr Upadhyay.
He added that initially such instruments including projector, camera and required tools will be provided in 20 schools of four zones that means in five schools of each zone under its jurisdiction. If the programme will succeed then it will be implemented in all 599 schools under its jurisdiction. The corporation will start working on the project from this financial year.
