NDMC partners with Khan Academy to set up tablet-based smart classes
The Partnership Agreement was signed at an event held at the Palika Kendra and was attended by Chairman NDMC – Mr. Naresh Kumar IAS, Secretary NDMC – Ms. Chanchal Yadav IAS, Director, Education, NDMC – Mr. Rabindra Gupta, India Strategist, Khan Academy India – Mathu Shalini and MD, Khan Academy India – Sandeep Bapna.
The initiative entails providing students of Class 6 to 12 with tablets, internet connectivity, and access to the Khan Academy platform. Khan Academy’s teaching tools and reports help teachers to track the progress of every individual student and to identify the learning gaps for each student. Teachers can set up their classrooms and assign videos, quizzes and unit tests to students on the platform. These resources could help reinforce a concept that’s been taught as well as to provide remedial help to students according to their individual learning needs.
Speaking on the occasion, Naresh Kumar, Chairman, NDMC said, “Technology is transforming the way children are learning. NDMC has already introduced smart classrooms which are yielding very good results. Now with the introduction of personal device based classrooms and introduction of self-paced platform of Khan Academy, we will be able to improve quality of education in NDMC/Navyug schools further.”
