To take the government’s National Digital Literacy Mission to the next level, HP and NASSCOM have joined hands to launch mobile classrooms in five cities. The shipping containers are converted into mobile classrooms that will be deployed in Mumbai, Pune, Chennai, Bengaluru and Rajasthan with the capacity to train 6,000 beneficiaries on digital literacy and Hewlett Packard learning initiative for entrepreneur (LIFE).
“With this partnership, we aim to support government’s National Digital Literacy Mission by setting up five centres across India to empower learners with digital literacy, entrepreneurial and vocational skills,” said Neelam Dhawan, Managing Director, HP (India). The cloud enabled and readily deployable shipping container classrooms will be equipped with technology, products, internet and HP LIFE e-learning solutions.
The classroom will be 40 foot x 9 foot and will have host of other benefits. Once the beneficiaries get trained in one particular area, the mobile classroom can be moved to a new location to give benefits to more people.
