2016-06-10 Silicon Review

Computer technology company ‘Dell India’ recently made an announcement regarding the launch of ‘Aarambh’, better described as an initiative that aims at making students aware of the importance of a personal computer in education.

According to company statement ‘Aarambh’ – a pan India initiative aimed at spearheading the use of the personal computer (PC) for education. The year-long project aims to reach 1 million students and 100,000 teachers across 5,000 schools; and 200,000 parents in 75 cities across the country.

Founded on the deep understanding of the exposure to interactive methods of learning in the developmental years, most easily delivered by using a PC, the project very well contributes to the well-rounded growth of a student.

Through Aarambh, Dell will engage with three key audiences – students, teachers and parents – in a series of activities meant to build their confidence and familiarity with the help of PC. Reiterating that the current household PC penetration in India has stagnated at anywhere between 9-10 percent – a number that needs grass root attention, the company said Dell Aarambh aspires to represent the use of PC learning to unlock potential for young students.

As per the company statement, the programme enables both parents and teachers to actively aid in the educational development of the child, while using a PC and create an encompassing ecosystem and supportive background for the child. Well not only that it also aims to establish that parents and teachers, who are key influencer’s in a child’s formative years, can aid their overall growth by participating in the adoption of PC technology for learning.
