Delhi government schools in India are preparing to welcome multimedia screens. CAL (computer-aided learning), Delhi government education department's ambitious project gives every lesson in NCERT textbooks for class VI to X in multimedia.
The pilot phase for the class VI bridge course is already on in 200 government schools. Work is on in the digitisation of the class X syllabus, but trials are on in a handful of schools only. The pilot project for class X will start in April. In the first stage a bridge course compiling the syllabi of classes I to V was prepared. The four-hour-long animation flick is shown to students of class VI over a period of three months, spread over two CAL classes per day. A team of 45-odd designers and graphic artistes and 20-odd teachers from various government schools are working on the project. At a cost of about Rs 60,000 per classroom and with 20,000 classrooms to be reached, CAL, because of its immense dependence on technology, is a project that would need a lot of resources. The hardware for the bridge course pilot project, worth approximately Rs 1.5 crore, was funded by a corporate. There are also plans to sell marketing rights to a company once the project is completed so that it is available to all school children.
