Krishna Kumar, IAS, SDO, Tadubi & Nodal officer for e-content learning stressed the importance of education where he said that it is the milestone of a nation’s development. It is the foundation of society which creates social prosperity in all round development. For a great objective, the Nodal officer said that digital learning to start the translation of syllabus and preparation of e-content in local dialects up to class XII, 30 teachers from 3 major tribes of the district namely Mao, Maram and Poumai were selected in the first phase whose role will be to facilitate the preparation of e-content in different dialects wherever possible with the priority to Class X & XII. To make the program successful and error free, Literature Committee from different dialects and members of student bodies are also inducted.
Speaking as the chief guest, Kirankumar, IAS, DC, Senapati stated that the olden teachers and students of the past had not seen many good things leading them to have softened their thinking process. They thought that one thing can never be possible because they had not learned and the main reason for distribution of TV sets is to make a small change in the lives of the students as an initiative towards a bright future through e-learning. Cinemas and teachings on TV can be taught to students in whatever languages as one likes.
Education is not only the duty of the ZEO, officers, Headmaster, teachers but demands active participation of the locality. With availability of TV sets, one good teacher in a school can be spreaded to other schools as good teacher through a pendrive. A good teacher in Delhi can be seen from the YouTube and learn through TV at present. The DC mentioned that such step was introduced in the district to give a boost in the field of education and everyone should motivate it to get its usefulness.
On pilot basis in the first phase, 10 schools including 2 schools under ADC, Senapati were distributed with 42 cm Smart LED TV sets each to concerned headmasters of the school. They are Senapati High School, Residential School, Bemdramai, Maram Khullen High School, Pudunamei High School, Paomata High School, Oinam Hill High School, Phuba High School, Mao-Maram Hr. Sec. School, Tunggam UJB School and Lower Phaibung UJB School. The program is stated to target atleast 100 schools by the end of the current year.
