Schools to get solar-powered ‘Smart Classroom Systems’ allowing teachers to augment conventional teaching practices

Founded last year, ConnectEd Technologies aims at enabling Indian youth – particularly those in rural areas – by making quality educational and vocational training content accessible to them using technology. The Education Ministry of Maharashtra and ConnectEd Technologies, an education-technology start-up, recently launched a campaign, named ‘EkShiksha’. The campaign aims at uniting socially-responsible corporates, NGOs, school managements and grass-root level educators to eliminate the educational inequity and provide world-class education to children studying in rural schools across the state.

Under the aegis of this campaign, rural schools will be equipped with ConnectEd Technologies’ ‘Smart Classroom System’, which is a robust, solar-powered, teacher-aided product that works flawlessly in demanding rural conditions and enables educators to easily integrate tailor-made multimedia educational content into conventional teaching practices, thereby improving learning environment and academic performance in rural classrooms.

The campaign launch also marked the inauguration of ConnectEd Technologies’ maiden project in the Palghar region of Maharashtra, which is the model of development to be followed by the ‘EkShiksha’ initiative. To execute this project, ConnectEd Technologies successfully garnered support of the Education Ministry of Maharashtra, Dewan Housing Finance Ltd. (DHFL), school managements and educators in Palghar to deploy sixty ‘Smart Classroom Systems’ across an array of rural schools.

Expressing his best wishes, Shri. Vinod Tawde, Hon’ble Education Minister of Maharashtra, said, “It gives me immense pleasure to announce the ‘EkShiksha’ campaign for rural schools across the state. I hope corporates, NGOs, school managements and teachers will come forward to support ‘EkShiksha’ and the dynamic, young team at ConnectEd Technologies’ spearheading it”

Lehar Tawde, Co-Founder, ConnectEd Technologies, added, “‘EkShiksha’ aims at providing children in rural schools with equal access to world-class education, as currently enjoyed by their urban and semi-urban counterparts; with rural-focused technology playing the medium of delivery,”
The first phase of ‘EkShiksha’ will focus on enhancing educational infrastructure in some of the most densely populated Government, Government-aided and Tribal Welfare schools across every district in Maharashtra; followed by digitization of education delivery across all schools in the state.
