Nineteen-year-old Akshay became a hero among his classmates at Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya (JNV) in Chandigarh, when he topped the 10th board examination in 2015. He hopes to repeat his performance in the upcoming 12th standard board examination next year.

 

Akshay attributes his transition from a “backbencher” to an outperformer to the introduction of digital education in his school three years ago.

 

“I used to be a mediocre student, but I felt attracted towards studies when Samsung Smart Class was introduced in our school. The class is beautiful and well-maintained, there’s a big LED screen and I had a laptop. I loved it. I think, it is one of the big factors behind me getting a perfect 10 CGPA in my 10th board examination.”

 

Samsung launched its Smart Class programme in collaboration with JNV schools in 2013. Every Samsung Smart Class is equipped with an interactive Samsung Smartboard, Samsung laptops/tablets, Wi-Fi connectivity and power backup.

Samsung Smart Class supplements regular lessons in mathematics, science and social science to explain concepts in an engaging and interactive manner. Now, many teachers have started preparing their own digital course material, so that students get a better grasp of all subjects.

 

“I have been using Samsung Smart Class to take the students through epics such as Ramayana and Mahabharata. Samsung Smart Class has caught the imagination of children. Students are attentive even in the absence of teachers in the class,” said Rajesh Kumar, who teaches Hindi at the school.

 

It’s not only academics, where Samsung’s flagship citizen programme is making a difference. The digital environment at JNVs has helped students develop keen interest in extra-curricular activities, such as quizzing and Olympiads, teachers say.

 

The smart class also doubles up as a computer lab because of good internet connectivity and state-of-the-art equipment, teachers say.

 

“Samsung Smart Class helps me think beyond the box and expand my thinking,” said Utkarsh, who wants to become an astrophysicist.

“We are elated with the phenomenal success of our flagship citizen program in India.
