DEOMALI , May 27:  In a momentous event, the Government Upper Primary School NTC Deomali witnessed the inauguration of Project Digi-kaksha -- a sustainable Smart Government School on Saturday. The Minister of Public Health & Engineering Department (PHED), IT, and DoTCL, Wangki Lowang, officially launched the initiative, which aims to bridge the gap between technology and education. Spearheaded by ADC Vishakha Yadav, under the guidance of the Deomali Administration and in collaboration with PGCIL, Digi-kaksha seeks to revolutionize the education system.
Digi-kaksha is the first-of-its-kind project in any government school in the state, setting a remarkable precedent for educational innovation. The highlight of the initiative is the introduction of a 4K HD Interactive Android teaching board, which is set to revolutionize the teaching and learning pedagogy. This state-of-the-art technology provides a platform for an immersive learning experience. Additionally, Digi-kaksha offers pre-loaded creative learning content for Nursery to XII classes, encompassing the CBSE curriculum. The content is specially designed to cater to the needs of slow and average learners, featuring virtual experiments, PhET simulations, and interactive question banks.
Built on the BALA (Building as a Learning Aid) model, Digi-kaksha aims to promote active learning and ensure equitable access to education, thereby democratizing the education system. The integration of phonetics, animated videos, and real-life concept demonstrations empowers children, including those with special needs, during their formative educational years.
During the inauguration ceremony, Minister Wangki Lowang emphasized the importance of foundational learning and the significance of teaching civic values such as hygiene and anti-drug awareness. He highlighted the use of weekly documentaries as a tool to impart these values to students, while also motivating teachers and students to recognize the transformative power of education.
ADC Vishakha Yadav, shed light on the volunteer-led evening Pathshala, an after-school initiative aimed at reintegrating dropouts back into the education system. She emphasized that the project aims to address the challenges of poor exam performance and increasing dropout rates. The success of the project is attributed to the collaborative efforts of various departments and stakeholders.
Digi-kaksha's innovative approach ensures that learning becomes simple, fun, and engaging for both teachers and students. The initiative also emphasizes the importance of continuous improvement through teacher training programs and timely assessments.
The execution of Digi-Kaksha was a joint effort between the Block Development Officer (BDO) of Namsang Block and the Block Education Officer (BEO) of Deomali, underscoring the commitment of multiple stakeholders to create a better future for today's students.
