Tata Interactive Systems has said it will digitise 1,000 schools spanning 140 cities by deploying its classroom solution Classedge by the end of the current academic year.
The city-based Tata Group firm has already deployed the Classedge classroom solution in 100 schools across 52 cities, which are affiliated to various boards like the CBSE, ICSE, IGCSE and state boards.
“We are planning to cover private sector schools. We intend to target 1,000 schools in over 140 cities by the end of this academic year,” Tata Interactive Systems chief executive Sanjay Sharma told PTI.
The Classedge solution provides schools an Internet connection, a personal computer, a digital projector as well as regularly supply updated proprietary content, based on the syllabus through a cloud computing model. The initiative is designed to enable what it calls a multiple learning experiences model, besides empowering teachers with a lesson plan approach, Sharma said. He added they intend to cover the country by year-end, and include content for Class 11 and 12 by next year, and look into government schools also.
