A bunch of Class VI students of Shivaji Nagar Municipal School were seen running towards it Wednesday. The reason ? they could not wait to reach their new ?digital classroom?, inaugurated on Monday.
The Urdu school number 6 of M East Ward in Shivaji Nagar, Govandi, is the first municipal school to install a digital classroom thanks to the efforts of school teachers. More than 50 students in Class VI are now taught through PowerPoint presentations and audio-visual clips prepared by the teachers.
?The digital version of the new syllabus is not available yet so we prepared a few presentations and produced videos to teach the children,? said Mohammed Zeeshan, a teacher who started the project.
