NEW DELHI: Samsung Smart Class, the company’s flagship citizen programme in India, promotes digital education among underprivileged students, especially in rural India. The initiative seeks to leverage the company’s expertise in developing technological solutions that will shape the future.

The company had launched the Samsung Smart Class programme in collaboration with Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya schools, a system of alternate schools under the Ministry of Human Resource Development. The programme aims to bridge the digital gap in education between rural and urban India and provide equal opportunities for quality education to children from all backgrounds.

Since 2013, Samsung has set up its Samsung Smart Class in over 373 Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya schools across the length and breadth of India benefitting over 2 lakh students, enabling them easy access to digitally interactive “smart” learning opportunities. In this period, over 7,400 teachers have been trained on how to use interactive technology to teach.

The results have started to show now with several students from these schools now qualifying for IITs and NITs across the country.Samsung recently highlighted one such success story through a digital and television campaign #SapneHueBade, of a boy from Maharashtra, Sadanand Ugale, who secured a study trip to Australia from Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya in Aurangabad, Maharashtra.

Additionally, the feedback from teachers and principals of Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya schools indicates that Samsung Smart Class have increased student attention in classrooms and increased student familiarity and comfort with technology. Students are able to learn complicated concepts more easily and the digitally interactive environment encourages shy or hesitant students to participate better in classroom discussions.

Every Samsung Smart Class is equipped with an interactive Samsung Smartboard, Samsung laptops/tablet, a printer, Wi-Fi connectivity and power backup. Samsung Smart Class supplements regular lessons in mathematics, science and social science to explain concepts in an engaging and interactive manner. Teachers are trained on using the equipment effectively to make lessons come alive.
