CHENNAI: In keeping with the times, Don Bosco Matriculation Higher Secondary School at Egmore welcomed e-learning as an additional learning tool for students. Believing that learning is now becoming a more participatory process, the school makes regular use of projectors, computers, and has introduced a tablet as a learning aid.

The device, called Teacher 24/7 and developed by Inventivo Solutions, will have graphic and interactive versions of the school lessons to help students at home.

“We feel the device will be used by them when they miss class, as children fall sick so often. And there are so many school holidays that sometimes teachers rush through a few lessons to make up. This will help them revise,” said Fr Irudayaraj, the principal. The device, he added, costs around Rs 3,600 for a year with software, and the software will be updated at an additional cost every year.

Around 200 students from Classes 6 to 8 have bought the tab so far.

“Learning should be creative and collaborative. Technology can help us with this as we can experiment,” the Principal said. The school is an inclusive school, and Fr Irudayaraj believes that these devices can help slow learners as it allows them to understand things in a more interactive manner. The device now contains lessons on maths and science.
