In the upcoming session, the Education Department has mandated computer education from Class 1 to Class 8, introducing the "Mission Start" program. According to reliable sources, this initiative will encompass the addition of 12,000 state schools, with 400 of them located in Udaipur.
Currently, there are 3,138 government schools operational in Udaipur. Once this program commences, it is expected that all 67 lakh students across the state will benefit from this initiative.
Shivji Gaur, the Additional Director of RSCERT, has stated that Government Secretary Naveen Jain is actively engaging in discussions with department officials concerning this scheme. The initial meeting addressed various issues, and the subsequent meeting to discuss additional matters is scheduled for the 12th. It's important to note that the Education Department aims to provide computer education to students from Class 1 to 8, aligning with the concept of a digital school.
This scheme is built on several key factors. Firstly, it aims to equip children with computer education to enhance their proficiency in an ever-evolving technological world, which is of paramount importance. Additionally, the department intends to establish job profiles for the existing computer instructors, encompassing both senior and junior instructors. Furthermore, there are plans to establish robotics labs in 300 schools as part of this initiative.
