On Saturday, Uttarakhand Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat launched a project to connect 500 secondary schools to virtual classrooms. He said that schools that face the shortage of teachers will benefit from technology.
According to an official press release “an estimated 1.90 lakh students of 500 government-run secondary schools in the state will benefit from the project”.
Using the platform to interact with students of the schools at the launch, Rawat said, “No technology can replace teachers in an education system but schools with a shortage of teachers will definitely benefit from the new technology.”
Initially, 500 schools have been connected with the project. The remaining 350 schools will be connected in the next 15 days, said the press release.
