Madhya Pradesh Government has selected 224 state-run schools at development block level for teaching through digital study material to students from class IX to XII in the state.
The Government is also likely to set up virtual class rooms in these schools. One room in each of these schools will be developed as the learning end in which necessary equipment like computer, TV set, projectors and camera will be installed for digital learning.
Teaching through virtual class has been proved helpful in imparting quality education to students especially in remote and rural areas. The use of technology in education has improved it and made teaching-learning processes more effective for students and teachers. Teachers trained under national middle education mission will use virtual class room for teaching.
In another step to bring transparency, the Government has made scholarships distribution by different departments to school students online. School education department has been made nodal department for distribution of 30 types of scholarships of eight departments through Samagra education portal.
In this process, scholarship has been calculated putting profile of 1.48 crore students studying in all government, non-government schools and educational institutes. On the basis of Samagra unique ID of every school student, Samagra education portal has been prepared for availing school dice code, mapping it with class wise and school wise enrollment. Scholarship has been transferred to students’ bank account through Mission One Click in 2017-18.
