Goa Govt introduces e-Notepads for Class 5 & 6 Students

Students soon to study from e-notepads
Panaji, Jun 14 (PTI): The Goa government is all set to make education hi-tech by introducing e-notepads in schools for the students of class 5 and 6 from next month.

Around 50,000 e-notepads would be provided to schools, including those run by private institutions, which would be supplied to students of Class 5 and 6, state Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar said today.


The government would tender the purchase of bulk e-notepads by the end of this month, he said.

The gadget would be pre-loaded with the syllabus and upgraded on timely basis.

Parrikar said that all schools would get wi-fi connectivity by December, so that the students can access internet on the e-notepad, sitting in the class.

"The student would carry notebooks and there will be black board teaching. The e-notepad will help the student revise his classroom teaching when he is back at home," Parrikar said.

The introduction of e-notepads would not mean doing away with the black boards or paper note books from the classes, he said.

The overhead projectors are also planned in few of the schools so that the students can be taught in a more interactive manner.
