MBMC schools all set to begin e-classrooms

After drawing flak for failure in providing proper computer education to students, the Mira Bhayandar Municipal Corporation (MBMC) is busy doing its homework for the introduction of Internet-based virtual classrooms in the civic-run schools. In a bid to provide a quality learning experience to students, MBMC’s Standing Committee Chairman, Dhruv Kishor Patil, has chalked out an elaborate plan to introduce virtual classroom facilities in all the civic-operated schools in the twin-city. There are 17 MBMC-owned buildings which house 35 schools that impart education in Marathi, Urdu, Hindi, Gujarati and semi-English mode, up to Standard VII, to around 8,000 children, including nearly 3,00 girl students.

“The virtual classroom system will involve audio-visual presentations on projectors armed with laser and LED technology for the students, to ensure quality interactive learning process for our students,” said Dhruv Kishor Patil, who hopes to make the system operational in the upcoming academic session. The e-learning project will be launched with the introduction of at least one virtual class-room in each school. “We have already earmarked financial resources for the project and in addition, the corporator-allocated funds will be pumped-in if the need arises. Apart from attracting the students, the system will also overcome the shortage of good teachers in the civic schools,” Patil said.

The MBMC is fine-tuning the modalities of appointing an experienced agency to handle the ambitious e-learning project. To move towards a more digital way of learning, the civic administration had introduced computer education in its curriculum way back in 2006. However, computer labs in most of the schools have remained non-functional for months altogether. The 10-year contract of the erstwhile establishment had ended in November 2016.
