The Government of Jammu and Kashmir has made certain arrangements to promote e-learning under the Samagra Shiksha Programme intending to help students during the lockdown period. The entire nation is currently striving hard to curb the spread of dangerous coronavirus pandemic. As part of the precautionary measures, the Government has imposed lockdown and are following social distancing and other steps. Due to the lockdown, all the schools across the country were shut for about 2 months.
The Government of Jammu and Kashmir don’t want their students to lose their academic year. For that, the state government has decided to facilitate the students by providing education via different technological sources. One of the government officials said that the education board of the state has commenced the digital education and virtual classes for the students. As all the colleges and schools across the state have been shut down, the government has made this decision.
The official said, ‘In order to maintain the continuity of education delivery to students several steps are being taken.’ He further added that the government has started distributing laptops to the resource rooms for free. On the other hand, visually impaired students are offered braille tactile readers as part of the measures under Samagra Shiksha.
For ambitious students, the government has initiated a career website. A total of 2500 tabs were distributed for the students amid the nationwide lockdown, said the official. The state government has levied some restrictions on providing 4G internet services, security problems, and quoting the usage of confrontational methods.
As of now, very low-speed 2G internet services are being offered across the state. This, in turn, obstructs the online education services and the availability of online study material to the students. In recent times, the apex court has appointed a special committee to find out the requirement of the ongoing restrictions across the state.
